I'm not afraid of standing still
I'm just afraid of being bored
I'm not afraid of speaking my mind
I'm just afraid of being ignored

I'm not afraid of feeling
and I'm not afraid of trying
I'm just afraid of losing
And I am afraid of dying

Without you yes I do and I hope that you do too
Without you yes I do
Without you yes I do and I hope that you do too
Without you yes I...

I'm not afraid of being sick
I'm more afraid of being well
I'm not afraid
Put the gun in my hand
I'm just afraid it will hurt like (hurt like) hell

I'm not afraid of screaming
and I'm not afraid of crying
I'm just afraid of forgetting
And I am afraid of dying

Without you yes I do and I hope that you do too
Without you yes I do
Without you yes I do and I hope that you do too
Without you yes I...

Fear of
Fear of
Fear of
Fear of

I'm not afraid of looking ugly
I couldn't care what they say
I'm not afraid of happy endings
I'm just afraid my life won't work that way

I'm not afraid of forgiveness
I absolve you everything
I'm not afraid of lying...
But I am afraid of dying

Without you yes I do and I hope that you do too
Without you yes I do
Without you all I do is sit and think about you
Without you yes I...

    General Commentsuch a good song...my fav from Jack off Jill. It's something I can relate to "I'm not afraid of happy endings, I'm just afraid my life won't work that way"

    General CommentThis song has to be one of my absolutly favourites when I'm feeling happy. the tune is so happy, and the lyrics are so meaningfull. When this song is playing i find it really hard not to smile, i jus sing along, n dont care about people hearing me, i jus sing loud n put my all into it cuz its so great. it also makes me feel that i can take on anything and not have a care in the world. my favourite lines are.
    'im not afraid of speaking my mind im just afraid of being ignored.'
    'im not afraid of looking ugly, i couldn't care what they say, im not afraid of happy endings im just afraid my life wont work that way'
    neadless to say, its a great tune, great lyrics, jess' voice is amazing and overall this song rocks!

    General Commenteveryone will argue with me for this one but i think this is kind of, partly at least, a parody of some 'popular' punk bands. apart from the actual skill involved in this, the basic tune etc is similar to blink182, offspring etc. some of the lyrics also seem to be a parody of the teeny punk band mind set.

    sorry.

    please dont hurt me.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song.... the lines I relate to the most are "I'm not afraid to put the gun in my hand but I'm afraid it'll hurt like hurt like hell" and "I'm not afraid of happy endings, I'm just afraid my life won't work that way." This song, after listening to it, makes me happier.... this song is great!
