"Scared" as written by and Albert Jr Hammond....
You know that something inside of you
Still plays a part in what I do always, I'm here for you
I think that if we were all we had
That's more than most people ever have
Anyway, oh, anyway, you can stay here

I know you're still there because you're scared
That you'll lose everybody
I know you're still there because you're scared
That you'll lose everything
I know you're still there because you're scared

I'm here if you're scared to go through
Anything, just reach out in front of you, always, won't you stay near?
So close, we played it as if we cared
Don't stop, now that we're almost there, anyway, oh, I'm here for you

I know you're still there because you're scared
That you'll lose everybody
I know you're still there because you're scared
That you'll lose everything
I know you're still there because you're scared

I know you're still there because you're scared
That you'll lose everybody
I know you're still there because you're scared
That you'll lose everything

I know you're still there because you're scared
That you'll lose everybody
I know you're still there because you're scared
That you'll lose everything

I know you're still there because you're scared
That you'll lose everybody
I know you're still there because you're scared
That you'll lose everything
I know you're still there because you're scared

    General CommentNo comments yet ?? Hmm.

    Nevertheless - and in a nutshell, this is a brilliant song.

    Obviously about someone being scared, and the singer reassuring her that he'll always be there for her regardless of what may happen and she's welcome to stay with him. Seems to me though that both the singer and whom he's singing to are past lovers.

    Eh, but whatever, as I could be completely wrong but despite that, I love this song.

    General CommentAren't we all scared deep down inside? I love how this song goes from fairly upbeat to this somber mood when the chorus takes place, it is a great mixture of emotion in everway.

    It definitly seems like he is singing about a girl who he is probably in a relationship with (or attempting to be in) but she has so many reservations that it is making things difficult, Albert could have wrote this song as a lullaby of sorts, to calm her nerves and put her at ease. But I think it can basically speak to all of humnaity as well with the overwhelmingly perfect lyrics:

    I know you’re still there because you’re scared that you’ll lose everybody
    I know you’re still there because you’re scared that you’ll lose everything
    I know you’re still there because you’re scared

    General Commentmy take on it is that this whole being scared business is:
    they have a past, as above people were saying which i agree with totally.
    but the person who is "scared" is the one the singer was with previously, and now that person is in another relationship. she's moved on, but not ACTUALLY moved on. she's with someone else, but still wants to be with the singer, and he knows it. that's why "i know you're still there because you're scared you'll lose everything"

    it's hard to break out of a relationship, especially to be with an ex which makes it even harder, and would create a ton of fear. how many people do you know who are in relationships out of fear of breaking up, or being alone, or some other "fear" reason. he's basically saying, don't worry about it, i'll be here waiting when you come back, and that he' still fully there for her.

    General Commentthis song is pretty good, i just wish he added more lyrics instead of repeating the chorus halfway thru the song.

    General Commenti agree with oL1v1a

    singer is past lover of some girl from the:

    "I think that if we were all we had
    That’s more than most people ever have, anyway"

    catchiest line in the whole song in my opinion. but either way, she's doing something that tells the singer she's scared, and he's just saying he'll always be there for her ("Oh I’m here for you")

    brilliant song. thank you mr. hammond. :]
