Afraid Lyrics

by David Bowie

I wish I was smarter
I got so lost on the shore
I wish I was taller
Things really matter to me

But I put my face in tomorrow
I believe we're not alone
I believe in Beatles
I believe my little soul has grown

And I'm still so afraid
Yes, I'm still so afraid
Yeah, I'm still so afraid
On my own, on my own

What made my life so wonderful?
What made me feel so bad?
I used to wake up the ocean
I used to walk on clouds

If I put faith in medication
If I can smile a crooked smile
If I can talk on television
If I can walk an empty mile

Then I won't feel afraid
No, I won't feel afraid
I won't feel, feel afraid
Anymore

Anymore
(And then I just won't be afraid)
Anymore
(And then I just won't be afraid)
