Kirsty Maccoll – I Am Afraid lyrics

I am afraid of the dark
I am afraid of the day
I am afraid to walk outside
And of what people say

I am afraid to drink too much
Because of what I might do
I am afraid to speak my mind
And of being with you

It's not that I'm not strong
It's just that I'm not strong enough for you
It's not that I'm not brave
It's just that I'm not brave,
It's just that I'm not brave,
It's just that I'm not brave enough for you

I am afraid to be unloved
I am afraid to be forsaken
I am afraid of doing wrong
And to never be forgiven

I am afraid that you will find
I'm not the man you think I am
I'm not afraid to be alone
And of the unknown

It's not that I'm not strong
It's just that I'm not strong enough for you
It's not that I'm not brave
It's just that I'm not brave,
It's just that I'm not brave,
It's just that I'm not brave enough for you

I am afraid to laugh out loud
Or to stand out of the crowd
I am scared of loving you
I am scared to lose you

I am afraid to lose control
I am afraid of growing old
I am afraid to die
But it's something I must do

It's not that I'm not strong
It's just that I'm not strong enough for you
It's not that I'm not brave
It's just that I'm not brave,
It's just that I'm not brave,
It's just that I'm not brave enough for two
