In an act of desperation she tried to play the game
And finalize the deal, now they would never be the same
He wondered if inside him, he should have hidden what was real
Couldn't learn to live without it, how was it supposed to feel
Her voice then broke the silence saying soon they'd both forget
Then another silence, then he said without regret

I will not be afraid
Though there ain't no miracles coming round the bend
Sometimes it's better just to let them end
Pain is your foe unless you make it your friend
And some things, some things I will not pretend

In a decision made in haste, he quickly said good bye
To a world he couldn't get through, but a world well worth a try
It is a lesser road now traveled, took him away from what he knew
And as his words became reality, he wondered what to do
But for reasons beyond his reckoning, he was so free from fear
And I wondered who was speaking as I listen to him here

I will not be afraid
Though there ain't no miracles coming round the bend
Sometimes it's better just to let them end
Pain is your foe, unless you make it your friend
And some things, some things I will not pretend

Felix lost his magic bag of tricks
For how else is a kitty cat gonna get his kicks
He tried believing that he knew where his magic bag was at
He tried believing in the beat up black felt top hat
He knew the show was bad, and the trick was a lie
But he didn't want to tell them, because they thought that he might cry

He could be inside a bottle or a camouflage vest
But the world is just a pillow, and we all need a rest
But don't forget that when you and your dreams have survived
Remembrance is the pain that keeps those things alive
And he woke up the next morning and it was all swept away
I bet I'd know what felix would say
He'd say

I will not be afraid
Though there ain't no miracles coming round the bend
Sometimes it's better just to let them end
Pain is your foe, unless you make it your friend
And some things, some things I will not pretend
