I’ve got a friend,
We go way back, Fear and I.
Always reminding me that no matter
What, it isn’t worth it to try.
Everytime I start to see the light,
he comes down with his midnight cloak,
pushing me down, and wrapping me tight.
It is he who reminds me that I will never win,
It is he who whispers that no matter what I say, nobody will listen.
For years Fear and I have sat watching the world pass by,
I have so many dreams, so many goals, but he advised me not to try.
Well, Fear, I have a few things to say to you,
You are not my friend, never were, and whatever we had is through.
I have so many dreams and it’s never too late to start.
Now that you are gone, I have so much more room in my heart.
Room to love, room to try, room to dream, room to cry.
I have broken you down, and kicked you out the door,
no more shame, no more guilt, I know that I am more.
Just wait, you monster called Fear,
Wait til you see who I am without you
I am strong, I have dreams, I have talents, and I will succeed.
