NateWantsToBattle - Nightmare Lyrics

Just sleep, just dream
Just sleep, just dream

Just sleep, just dream

In the back of my mind
I've been trying to chase a monster this whole time
But I couldn't see the monster was me
And no one heard our cries
Now I've run out of tears
The time has come for me to disappear
Get me out of this mess and away from this stress
Set me free so I can rest

We're only kids who lost our way
But if we wait long enough we will be saved
Just sleep, just dream
This isn't fair, no we're not just what we seem
We want to fly but our souls are trapped inside
It's not a game, not to blame, we're forced to hide
Just sleep, just dream
It's only a nightmare and soon we'll be set free

(And soon we'll be set free)

And I've been crying out for help
I know I bite but I mean well
Can you see my disguise, I'm different inside
Can you break this spell
And all the ghosts from before
They're knocking and they're breaking down your door
So please set us free, now you have the key
Cause I can't take the pain no more

We're only kids who lost our way
But if we wait long enough we will be saved
Just sleep, just dream
This isn't fair, no we're not just what we seem
We want to fly but our souls are trapped inside
It's not a game, not to blame, we're forced to hide
Just sleep, just dream
It's only a nightmare and soon we'll be set free

We're only kids who lost our way
But if we wait long enough we will be saved
Just sleep, just dream
This isn't fair, no we're not just what we seem
We want to fly but our souls are trapped inside
It's not a game, not to blame, we're forced to hide
Just sleep, just dream
It's only a nightmare and soon we'll be set free

  9. The K Familee a_deptgaming

    To be honest the fnaf is actually real if you don't believe then don't Read this :/ theres 5 kids died and they thought the costume will protect them inside but when they got inside they are locked up and died bleeding and it got on fire because of springtrap and the kids got away from it but they got on fire while escaping so its gone.

    I feel this song so much..I am a monster and I need help I can't fight alone for who ive become
    Soon I hope to be set free
    And it's my favorite FNAF song

  38. OVERYX X

    This will be the last video I’ll watch before January 1 2020 comes

  39. swiftraven2346

    This could honestly be a mainstream rock song if a few lyrics were just slightly modified

    Melon Squadwood

    Nah, it's good enough on it's own


    @Melon Squadwood obviously yeah but I'm talking about catching people's interest, most people don't know about fnaf outside of the gaming bubble it has influenced, but if you changed the lyrics about being animatronic to something like undead it could be marketed as an edgy rock song, Disturbed style

  40. Lexta Vactchi

    The lore is sad and disturbing and I still don’t know how I can express my appreciation to Scott and many of the fellow fans who made content like this. I found this song again after so many years and I’m crying. I’ve played almost all of the FNAF games (by Scott himself) long ago, and I wish I could experience those feeling again someday. FNAF hit me hard and when I was a young teen it helped me grow. Scott is a god and Nate is one of his angels. 💗

  41. •ĎręamĎrafţ_YT•

    You sing better than any famous singer in the world xD

  42. Istmeyes and iduhlol

    Yeh Boi

  43. Socky The Cat


  44. FAoS KoolKid D

    4 years old and its still 1 of the best fnaf songs i]in first (wake up wake up), home,nightmare

  45. Potato Animates

    I remember having my FNAF phase and this song meant a lot more to me then dead children in animatronic suits. I cried to this song because it reminded me of how sleeping and dreaming kept me from reality, and even if I hate myself and see me as a monster, that one day I won't be so sad, and under stress. That if I waited, I'd be okay in the future and would be saved in the future. Now I know how edgy that sounds, but I really like this song and it really helped me.

  46. Unknownchosen 0ne

    Was I the only one who feels this speaks to them as a child

  47. logan noelleee


  48. Kai Smith

    Love this song...

  49. Halo_ lanz

    I can feel it
    Kids just want to go

  50. TheCakerMC 54


  51. your baby

    *when the songs still makes you cry*

  52. Metal Heart

    its so sad i always cry

    love you NateWantsToBattle and your songs/covers !!!!

  53. Mr. Dash

    2:03 jeez that scene was awesome

  54. Mr. Dash

    Screw off nostalgia



  56. Arbour Animations

    I don’t like fnaf anymore but I still like the songs there just really catchy and enjoyable. I dislike the game it’s very predictable I haven’t read Scott’s book yet so I have no opinion but I don’t mind the songs

  57. firestalker11

    Upon further reflection I think this is one of my favorite songs Nate has ever put out.

  58. Univers de Satomi

    It's my ultimate favorite song, thanks for all NateWantsToBattles


    i was isolated in a room as a kid for 3 years around 2014-2015-2016.
    i remeber hearing this and almost crying due to relating that much

  78. NewYorkGaming

    I’ve had 3 nightmares of Five Nights At Freddy’s. The first one was me playing a mini game, I was in the 8-Bit office Foxy on the left door, Bonnie on the right. Then, Withered Foxy jumpscared me. The second one I had was me fighting off my “father” who transformed into Nightmare Fredbear, who I managed to fight off with my strength. But he looked kind of sad when he suddenly picked me up, then vanished. Then, I had to destroy a clock, and I did it on my counter. And then my grandmother comes in the kitchen and complains about me damaging her precious counter. Then, I have the urge to look in the basement to find Harry Potter as Phantom Freddy. And finally, the third one I had was of me in FNAF 6. I was doing the maintenance checklist for the animatronics I was salvaging. And then, scene of silence followed by me at a desk with Scrap Baby. She spoke, though I forget what she said, but her movement was so real. Imagine a model of scrap baby designed perfectly like Scott’s model. And imagine it moving, and speaking to you. Well, I can officially say it’s bone chilling. Way more than VR.

  79. CreeperTheKing Creeper

    I remember hearing this song some time ago,bat im.......idk......................
    bat anyway it is a really nice song....

  80. Ibrahim Diriye

  81. Melon Squadwood

  82. DevilGhoul Ryan

    Approaching 2020 and this song still kicks ass

  83. _Natsumi_

    For me, the best FnaF song ever made.

  84. ROBLOX Noobie

  85. ROBLOX Noobie

  86. Nightmare Springtrap Gamer

    Fantastic Work!

  87. Charlotte Roberts

    I missed this song omg

  88. Gacha Luna

    how!? i dont understand how to do lyrics! (lyrics on yt ;-;)

  89. satavvibes

    Okay so-

    Back in five nights at freddys-
    the kids were partying, one of them went missing-
    got murdered and stuffed their body into a suit and so
    happened to the others eventually
    so nowadays they roam around the halls looking for revenge
    and payback -

    the sad thing is, they just want it to end. They look for revenge because
    they know they don't deserve this harm or torture and so to whoever
    did this to them, (murdered and stuffed in a suit) wants them to
    pay it back and feel how much pain they carry around every day of every second...
    till one day it came to an end- where the guy burnt down the place and their
    souls were released finally....

  90. Crystal Hoke

    Nate you have to tell me...Did you sing this song, cuz it's amazing I can't stop replaying it :)

  91. Pinkie Cloud


  92. dgbeck

    I dont even like fnaf (anymore at least, havent touched anything related to the game in years, I stopped caring after the 4th game) but this song still slaps

  93. Juliancito-kun

    Definitely one of my favourite FNaF songs! :D

  94. Crystal Hoke

    This is now my favorite song :D

  95. Vsdahf

    when you see fnaf ship art:I CAN'T TAKE THE PAIN NO MORE

  96. TR Ink Sanss

    wait this was made 4 years ago feels like yesterday

  97. Germanlolazo100 ALLAHU AKBAR

    Good times...

  98. Battery 888

    I feel a different vibe from this song since I last heard it 3 years ago. It’s almost like he set a vibe to let us know that we can be saved from our depression and anxiety instead of trying to do it on our own. I think he wants to let us know we are not alone In our struggles and feelings of doubt and that if we just ask for help we will get help from others
