"Afraid Of Nothing" as written by and Sharon Van Etten....
You told me the day
That you show me your face
We'd be in trouble for a long time

I can't wait
'Til we're afraid
Of nothing
I can't wait
'Til we hide
From nothing
Nothing
And you decide
You throw me a lame "wait sh*t out"
You're a little late
I need you
To be afraid of nothing

Turning my way
You show me your face
We've known each other for a long time

I can't wait
'Til we're afraid
Of nothing
I can't wait
'Til we hide
From nothing
Nothing
And you decide
You throw me a lame "wait sh*t out"
You're a little late
I need you
To be afraid of nothing

I need you
To be afraid of nothing

    My InterpretationI think this song is pretty straightforward. It seems that she is being strung along in a relationship with someone who is holding back. Her partner is either waiting to progress in their relationship or to amend something that has gone wrong. Sometimes people may deem it necessary to wait to do these things in their personal life because of life circumstances, but they fail to see the pain that they are causing the other person. When one partner tries to bury their problems or put off important decisions, they selfishly stunt the growth and satisfaction of the other partner. Sharon is sharing the thoughts of the other partner who is being forced to wait on someone who may or may not move forward or change. Frustration, melancholy, and defeat come across in such a beautifully understanding and slightly optimistic tone in this song. It's beautiful.
