fear is waking up at night
breathless, shaky, not all right

fear is being on alert,
day and night, God, it hurts

fear is crawling up inside
the safest place there is to hide

fear is when you can not do
things you like when you want to

fear can take your life away,
do not let it. Make it stay

you can do it, fight the fear
use your force, you know it's there

deep inside you. I cheer you on
your life, only to you - it belongs

so take your life back, embrace it tight
move on, don't look back, and then one day you might-

sleep a whole night peacefully without those bad dreams,
take a hike in the mountains, feeling happy, at ease

control the fear, you can do it, I know
follow your own voice wherever you go

your strength, heart and passion will guide you through
take a breath, follow it, go ahead- its for you
