I'm not scared
Of lions
And tigers and bears
(No I'm not)
But I'm scared
Of loving you
I'm not scared
To perform
At a sold out affair
(That's right)
But I'm scared
Of loving you
Am I the only one
Who thinks
It's an impossible task
Why it don't last?
Is that too much to ask?
Why do we love love
When love seems
To hate us?

Sorry if I sound
So filled with gloom
You say you care
And I know you do
But this is
From my experience
And my conclusion
Only makes sense

Just cause I love you
And you love me
It doesn't mean
That we're meant to be
I can climb mountains
Swim cross the seas
But the most
Frightening thing
You and me

Most circumstances
I know my fate
But in this love thang
I don't get the game
Why does it feel
Like those who give in
They only wind up
Losing a friend

Just cause I love you
And you love me
It doesn't mean
That we'll ever be
Fly cross the ocean
Sing for the queen
But the most
Frightening thing
Is you and me

I'm sure though
I'm not sure
But if we never try
We'll never know
It's better to have loved
Then not to loved at all

Not trying is worse
Than to stumble and fall
And if we do
I'd rather it be with you
Cause at least there
Will be sweet memories
Oh, I'm not scared

    I feel like the meaning of this song is that she is fearless in so many ways shes not scared of lions tiger or bears and other things but scared of loving this dude even though she thinks they could be together and shes scared to get her heart broken

    I happen to LOVE this song alot because I listen to it almost EVERY day,and I would say that she means she is not afraid of anything at all,and she does love him very much,its just that she is afraid the same thing will happen to her again.

    I think what this song is trying to tell us is that eventhough you are afriad to love because your past bfs have hurt you, you still keep trying to find that right person . You never know how that special someone will turn out . You shouldnt think all men are bad you never know he might be a nice guy . Having a baby always makes the love stronger.

    I can definitely relate to this song! I have said many times that I would fight a bear if I had to but I had a lover that I feared more than any Lion, Tiger or Bear. I knew that she could rip my heart apart knowing that I truly love her. In knowing this, I could never give all of myself to her and I had to let her go.
