The Man Beneath the Stairs

Who is the man beneath the stairs?
What circumstances brought him there?
Some troubled past? We’ll never know.
Why do the neighbors fear him so?

Behind the furnace there’s a door
A path worn deep into the floor
Down where no children pass alone
A private man has made his home

Where is the man beneath the stairs?
I’ve got this feeling he’s not there
There’s been no light behind his door
There’s been no sound beneath the floor

I miss the man beneath the stairs
Life’s incomplete without him there
I miss the sense beneath my feet
That someone’s watching out for me
