"Fear" as written by Brad Goodsell, Daniel William Ledwell, Glen Andrew Nicholson and John Wd Mullane....
You, you can go outside alone
The city awaits you there
Or you can carry on at home
But, I know that you need it

Cold now and on your way to school alone
And footsteps behind you there
But love will find you in a crowded room
Or follow you home

And all the fear, I lost in a day, love
I turned around, I turned and I saw you there
And all the fear I lost when I knew that
I’m gonna change

Cars roll on their way to work
And I recall something you said about the world
And how, love will find us in the end
Or follow us home

And all the fear, I lost in a day, love
I turned around, I turned and I saw you there
And all the fear I lost when I knew that
I’m gonna change
I’m gonna change

    General CommentGoing outside is about running from love
    Carrying on at home is about hiding from love
    But it follows you and it can be scary like footsteps behind you
    It can find you even lost in a sea of faces
    But when you stop running and hiding from it
    Because you decided to change, because you realize you need it
    You turn to face it
    You face what you fear
    And there it is
    Love staring straight at you
    And suddenly you realize that you’re not so afraid anymore
    Because love throws fear aside
    That’s what I think the song is about
    And I would add, that change happens when you realize that being without love is scarier
    than the possibility of losing it
    So you take that risk
    And hope
    Hope for the best
