"I'm So Afraid" as written by and Lindsey Buckingham....
I been alone
All the years
So many ways to count the tears
I never change
I never will
I'm so afraid the way I feel

Days when the rain and the sun are gone
Black as night
Agony's torn at my heart too long
So afraid
Slip and I fall and I die

I been alone
Always down
No one cared to stay around
I never change
I never will
I'm so afraid the way I feel

Days when the rain and the sun are gone
Black as night
Agony's torn at my heart too long
So afraid
Slip and I fall and I die

    General Commentthe only version of this song i've ever heard is off the live Rumours album, it has one of the best guitar solos i have ever heard...Lindsey Buckingham is an outstanding guitar player, possibly the most underrated guitarist in music

    General CommentThe only version I have heard is the live version that originally appeared on the album, The Dance. In that version, some band member (presumably Lindsey Buckingham) blurts out some gibberish right when the crowd starts applauding when the song is over. It sounds like it's in a foreign, European language. What does he say?

    General CommentI have the studio version off of fleetwood mac album. I love this song. Its so haunting and beautiful.

    Personally, like said before, its about being alone, not sure if it refers to family, friends, boyfriend/girlfriend, or whoever else. But it just seems like this person is alone, no one to turn to or talk to. Just an awesome song.

    General CommentLovely song, guitar makes me wish I could play. As to the gibberish, $band_member says, "Lindsay Buckingham", in a very British accent. HTH, stoolhardy.

    My OpinionPretty obvious that this song is about being alone and depressed because of it. The way Lindsey delivers it is incredibly emotional and genuine, and he sings it with such an overpowering sense of agony in his voice. The solo is one of the most amazing I've ever heard. Underrated and a mad genius with his guitar. The best version of this song is definitely off of the 1980 "Live" album. It's a staggeringly impressive performance with more emotion than usual and a much more intense solo.
