Story
This lyric isn't really a lyric at all. It's a poem that I adapted to song and it's a confession I made to myself upon realizing just how afraid I was, at the time, to do or say anything unexpected, out of the ordinary, or adventurous. Upon writing that poem, I made a vow to myself that going forward, I would acknowledge my fears but not let them stop me from doing or saying whatever I needed to do or say. It's been quite the journey ever since.
 
 

Lyrics

Fear
(c) 2003, Serina Jung

Fear,
when did you appear?
when I did I invite your darkness
into my thoughts?
Love,
it scares me more than death itself
if I let go will I fall, and fall
and fall?
 
I have yet to outrun the wind
I have yet to remove
plasters from old wounds
'cause with every breath I take
I inhale you, Fear
 
chance,
may have walked with me
more than once
but you were with me
no, you would not leave my side
and dreams,
they used to come to me with fine ideas
but all the gifts they bore
were left untouched, untried
 
I have yet to outrun the wind
I have yet to remove
plasters from old wounds
I have yet to outrun the wind
I have yet to taste freedom
'cause with every breath I take
I inhale you, Fear
