Track Name: I Am Afraid
I'm afraid of how homesick I am
Been leavin' for so long now, I don't know if I can
I stay out late, I sleep in my van
'cus I don't like the person that I am

I'm afraid for people that I love
That they'll all be destroyed by some small grudge
I wanna keep them safe, but i'm scared I'm not enough
So I'm afraid for people that I love

I'm afraid that you won't come back
That the feelings you misplaced for me are no longer in tact
It makes me feel sick just to think about that
I am so afraid you never will come back.

and I'm afraid I'll turn into my dad
Even though my problems are ones he never had
He tried to be an artist, now I'm tryin' that
so I'm afraid I'll turn into my dad

Because sometimes we hurt the ones we love
Somehow that affection never is enough
Being alone is getting way too tough
I'm so close to just giving up

I'm afraid I am the only one
who feels completely doomed when the day is done
but feeling bad for myself's no fun
and I know that I am the only one

I'm afraid that you still don't know
all of the long lengths that I would go
to make you see that you are not alone
but you will not let me tell you so

I'm afraid I am as good as gone
I feel a lot like elliott, and he was twice as strong
I have been fighting for too long
I think I am as good as gone.
