"Are You Afraid?" as written by and Robert Schwartzman....
Are you afraid of me?
Well, are you afraid of me?

What are you trying to do to me, do to me?
What are you trying to prove to me, to prove to me?
There's something you're not saying but your actions say enough
And I don't know what's really going on

Well, are you afraid of me?
(Are you... afraid, are you afraid of me?)
Well, are you afraid of me?
(Are you... afraid, are you afraid of me?)

I leave a message every night but you don't call me
The only times we ever talk you're in a hurry
I know my reputation doesn't help you sleep at night
Well, lately, baby, I feel I don't know you

Well, are you afraid of me?
(Are you... afraid, are you afraid of me?)
Well, are you afraid of me?
(Are you... afraid, are you afraid of me?)

I, I thought we were the same but now you play this game
You're young, no fun; and you're making me crazy

Well, are you afraid of me?
(Are you... afraid, are you afraid of me?)
Well, are you afraid of me?
(Are you... afraid, are you afraid of me?)
Are you afraid of me?
(Are you... afraid, are you afraid of me?)
Are you afraid of me?
(Are you... afraid, are you afraid of me?)

    General CommentThis whole album feels very 80's to me.

    Aanyway, it seems like it's about a relationship where one person has gone distant? She changed somehow. Why would she be afraid? She suddenly saw something differently?

    General CommentI get the impression she stopped being into him (maybe because of his reputation like he mentioned) and just can't find it in herself (the courage) to just be honest to his face so she's avoiding him. It happens all the time but I see it more often that men do this.

    Regardless, I really like the song.

    General CommentI think it is more that a girl and a guy are attracted to each other but she is afraid to go into anything with him because he has a bad reputation when it comes to dating a lot of girls
