"Scared" as written by James Dearness Hogarth and Aimee Duffy....
The blank pages of my diary,
That I haven't touched since you left me,
The closed blinds in my home
See no light of day.
Dust gathers on my stereo
Cause I can't bare to hear the radio
The piano sits in a shaded space
With a picture of your face.

[Chorus]
I'm scared to face another day
Cause the fear in me just won't go away.
In an instant, you were gone and I'm scared.

Coffee stains on your favorite book
Remind me of you so I can't even look.
The magazines you left on the floor,
You won't need them anymore.

A towel left hangin' on the wall,
No sign of wet footsteps in the hall
There's no smell of your sweet cologne.
I'm lying here alone.

[Chorus: x2]

In an instant you were gone and I'm scared.

    General Commentat first i thought that this was just a break up, but after some thought, i decided that whoever shes singing about is dead... and that it was very unexpected.
    'in an instant you were gone'
    'you wont need them anymore'

    its a very good song though :)

    General CommentI also think it's about him passing away rather than just abandoning or breaking up with her. She sings beautifully here, I'd pick it as my favorite ..

    I would be scared too in such situation.

    Duffy you're awesome.

    General CommentShe was so in love with him and so use to always having him be there, that she see's him in everything as she lives her live in her home. Apparently their relationship didn't work out, and she's afraid (scared) to live her life without him, because it feels very unusual/uncomfortable. Very relatable lyrics.

    General CommentShe was in love with this guy who died very suddenly and now she's left in a place filled with his belongings and many things that remind her of him. She is scared of moving on and having a new life without him
