I'm scared to sleep, I'm scared to dream.
I'm scared to wake up in case I scream.
I'm scared to whisper one word.
That's all it needs.

I hear it breathe, I hear it sigh.
I hear it laughing when something dies.
I hear it calling,
But I'm too scared to move.

I'm so scared
I can't breathe.
I'm so scared
I can't breathe.
I'm so scared
I just can't breathe.

I'm scared to look, I'm scared to see.
I'm scared of mirrors in case it's me.
I'm scared of memories,
But now that's all I have.

So I can't leave and nothing comes.
So no one noticed that I've come undone.
I'd hide in shadows,
But the shadows talk to me.

I'm so scared
I can't breathe.
I'm so scared
I can't breathe.
I'm so scared
I just can't breathe.

I'm so scared
I can't breathe.
I'm so scared
I can't breathe.
I'm so scared
I just can't breathe.

    General CommentGary, please. Look beyond the physical and grasp the fact that the here and now is *not* all we may ever hope to have.
