I'm afraid of sad songs Afraid of what they'll do Bury into my subconscious Modify my moods So I made a firm decision That I'd hardly ever listen And I wouldn't sing them to myself Or you But somehow I must have swallowed a seed It stuck in my throat Now it's growing and spreading like weeds Putting down roots Bearing sour fruits Shedding skeleton leaves I'm afraid of bleeding Afraid of broken bones Scared of laryngitis Terrified of carpal tunnel syndrome So I don't take risks Trust only things I'm certain exist Safety in small numbers Attraction without opposites But somehow I thought I'd thickened my skin Formed my own armour In the hope it wouldn't let harm in I thought I was safe It seems that was quite the mistake We're far beyond the solstice And the nights are starting earlier each day
