"Won't be afraid" as written by and Ryan Monro Oliver James Mcgill....
Well I’ve been at the top of a cliff and seen ships go sailing away
And I’ve watched the sea turn green and bright bluefish swim in the shade
I’ve imagined skies in reverse and note stormy mountains can light
And I was there by the shore on the night when the stars all married the tide

When the time arrives
That we must form a line
Would you stand and take my side
Would you take my side

No I won’t be afraid
No I won’t be afraid
When the evening takes all of the color out of my day
And the morning is as far as it could ever be away

And now we turn into the world as if dreams were an ocean to wade
Under all the kites they glide like a friendship set on a wave

When the time arrives
That we must form a line
Would you stand and take my side
Would you take my side

No I won’t be afraid
No I won’t be afraid
When the evening takes all of the color out of my day
And the morning is as far as it could ever be away

And maybe I'm afraid of fools the children that are saved
Maybe I'm not certain when they draw the final curtain
The woman in the water and the baby in the barn
And the morning is as far as it could ever be away

No I won’t be afraid
No I won’t be afraid
When the evening takes all of the color out of my day
And the morning is as far as it could ever be away

No I won’t be afraid
No I won’t be afraid
When the evening takes all of the color out of my day
And the morning is as far as it could ever be away

    General CommentWhat a beutiful song this is. I'm too lazy to analyse it completely, but it seems to be about love, and not being afraid of what it holds.

    General CommentI think it's about death. There are several references 'When the time arrives...' 'Draw the final curtain' In any case it is beautifully poetic, especially the first verse.
