A cool ‘alternative rock’ song that exposes fear as the culprit. Aha!



I was afraid of my shadow
that followed in the light,
only finding comfort
in the middle of the night
I was afraid of my shadow
that followed everywhere
and when I tried to stop it
I'd see nothing there

Nothing there
that I could see
hiding somewhere inside of me
Oh and just when I finally knew
my fear was gone
but so are you

So the fire burned inside me
with every exit blocked
except a single door
that was always locked
I used a key to your heart
to unlock the door
now on the other side
I'm not afraid…
I’m not afraid anymore!

I'm not afraid
I opened the door and then I prayed
oh and just when
I made it through,
my fear was gone
but so are you

and one day you'll find the words
you were afraid to say
that I've never heard
and just then you’ll realize
your fear is gone but so am I
