"Scared of Lonely" as written by Beyonce Gisselle Knowles, Rodney Roy Jerkins, Lashawn Ameen Daniels, Richard Preston Butler, Crystal Johnson and Solange Knowles....
I'm in this fight and I'm swinging and my arms are getting tired
I'm trying to beat this emptiness, but I'm running out of time
I'm sinking in the sand and I can barely stand
I'm lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
I try to be patient, but I'm hurting deep inside
And I can't keep waiting; I need comfort late at night
And I can't find my way; won't you lead me home?
'Cause I'm lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
And I'm scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I'm scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I'm scared of being alone
I can't seem to breathe when I am
Lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
I'm scared of lonely

I cry at night 'cause my baby's too far to be by my side
To wipe away these tears of mine, so I hold my pillow tight
To imagine you would stretch your hand looking for mine
'Cause I'm lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
And I'm scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I'm scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I'm scared of being alone
I can't seem to breathe when I am
Lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I need your strength when nobody's around
'Cause I'm tired of this emptiness; I think I'm drowning
I can't be lonely no more
'Cause I'm lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
And I'm scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I'm scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I'm scared of being alone
I can't seem to breathe when I am
Lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
And I'm scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I'm scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I'm scared of being alone
I can't seem to breathe when I am
Lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
I'm scared of lonely

    General Commentwell to me it seems like she and her guy are far apart (either broken up or in my case it's long distance). she doesn't want to face the fact she's alone, because the thought of being alone scares her. the first verse:

    "I'm in this fight, and I'm swinging
    And my arms are getting tired
    I'm trying to be this emptiness but I'm running out of time
    I'm sinking in the sand , And I can't barely stand."

    explains her struggle in this current state. she's trying to fight it but the feeling is taking over.

    "I cry at night, 'cause my baby's too far, to be by my side
    To wipe away these tears of mine, so I hold my pillow tight
    To imagine you, I'll stretch your hand looking for mine."

    basically, she misses him and wishes he was there with her.

    The part that sums it up the most is "I'm lost in this dream , I need you to hold me
    I'm scared of lonely."

    She wants it to be all a dream, a nightmare that will soon be over. All she needs is for him to hold her to make it all go away.

    My Interpretationhow i feel about the song she saying she been holding down a man since forever waiting for him to love her the way she want to be loved without telling him and when he away doing his thing she wants to be secure when hes not around but he aint doing that but shes ready to move on but shes ready for him but hes not ready for her and shes afraid to move on because shes a afraid of lonely which mean she scared of the thought of being lonely so she continues to deal with it cause it hurts to let him go because of the time spent no grammer problem you gotta think outside the box to the dumb assholes
