I Will Not Be Afraid
I Will Not Be Afraid

Because it’s you, because it’s true
Because you’re far too good to lose
Because you’re here, because it’s clear
Because your love has been drowning the fear

I will not be afraid
I will not run away
I will not leave too soon
And then wish I stayed
I will not be afraid
I will not be afraid

Because I’ve lost, because it cost
Because my heart’s been double crossed
Because I thirst, to quench the hurt
Because not trying is always worse

I will not be afraid
I will not run away
I’ll work the double shifts
‘til the piper’s paid
I will not be afraid
I will not be afraid

Bridge

For so long I chose to be
A prisoner of fear
I prolonged the slavery
For too many years, for too many years

I will not be afraid
I will not run away
I’ll let those memories of failure fade

The hand that I’ve been dealt, I’m gonna play
I’ll keep the things I’ve learned and I will not trade
I will not be afraid
I will not run away


I’ll grow a little stronger every day
I’ll face the music proudly that I have made
And if you knew me then you’ll know I’ve changed today


I will not be afraid
I will not be afraid
I will not be afraid
