(Co-written with the wonderful Meri)
ďWhat are you scared of?
Iím scared of the wind,
Breaking our bond.
I'm scared of the rain,
Washing all our memories away.
I'm scared of love,
Just in case it disappears.
I'm afraid of the sun,
Showing my true colours,
Causing you to run.
I'm afraid of life,
That one day,
It will bring you ,
I'm afraid of death,
Then taking you,
I'm scared of fear,
Making me feel that way.
Iím grieved in spirit, because I lack reassurance.
I ran out of stamina. I need back my endurance.
Why canít things happen the way I want them to?
On my side of the States, rainbows are very few
If only life were simple, if only the road were easy
Why when I set sail, the winds are extra breezy?
My stomach is queasy. Iím not my normal self.
Fear is making me wacky. Iím not in good health.
Why to every upside, thereís always a downside?
Is it just me, or am I alone being tested and tried?
Why to every pro, thereís always a con?
Whereís Kim Possible, and her assistant Ron?
According to Stoppable, she could do anything
They say sheís available in winter, fall, summer and spring
Iím in hot water, and I really need to be bailed out
My edginess is deterring me from moving freely about
Why to every benefit, thereís always a drawback?
Just when I maintain my balance, I slip through the cracks
Why to every win or gain, thereís always a loss?
And the stream that looked clean turned out to be dross?
Iím frightened because I want whatever I do to last
Why fall in love, just to see my heart shatter like glass?
I canít get thrilled too soon, the feeling may leave me
Just as quick as it came, all the more to deceive me
Please believe me. Itís hard to overcome this fear.
I (long for company. Oh, if only underdog was here.
