Not Be Afraid

I saw a man and he scorned his wife in fear she was untrue
And her hands they shook and her tears they fell for something she didn’t do
But he protects his pride by his meaner side towards the things he doesn’t know
He kills the seeds of the thing he fears before they ever grow
Before they ever grow

It’s what keeps our tongue tied up from saying what we really know is true
And it paralyses our will to do the things we ought to do
I’ve seen it your eyes before and I’ve seen as of late
We’ve both seen the damage love can cause and it makes us hesistate
It makes us hesitate

So let’s put our fears away
Let’s not be afraid
To say what we’ve been meaning to say
Let’s no longer, no longer be afraid
To fall in love
Love

A president said it was the only thing we really had to fear
And though he’s talking about a time of war I know just how he feels
Cause it makes us grow a thicker skin with each and every day
Whether it be a time of love or a time or war the story’s still the same
Protect ourselves from pain

So let’s put our fears away
And let’s not be afraid
To say what we’ve been meaning to say
Let’s no longer, no longer be afraid
To fall in love
Love
