I'm Not Scared Anymore



When I'm lying in the arms of the woman I love,
I'm completely at peace with the world,
And the dark clouds around me that often surround me,
Just fall away into the night, I'm not scared anymore;

When I can't sleep at night and I just stare at the moon,
Listening to your beating heart,
To know that you're with me, and the love that you give me,
Keeps me from falling apart, I'm not scared anymore;

You are near, you are here;

When I think about the ways of the other world,
And all the ones who've gone before,
Well I believe they can see us, believe they are with us,
Hear every word that we speak, I'm not scared anymore,

Oooh - they hear every word that we say,
Oooh - when I have my lover with me,
I'm not scared anymore, I'm not scared anymore;

When I'm looking at my children and the world where we live,
And the violence coming every day,
Well I know I'll protect them with the power of my love,
To the very last drop of my blood, I'm not scared anymore;

Can you hear me, I am near,
Can you see me, I am here;

When I'm lying in the arms of the woman I love,
I'm completely at peace with the world,
I'm not scared anymore,
I'm not scared anymore,
I'm not scared anymore.
"Again, this is very Celtic; only really two chords involved in this one, and a sort of drone going through. It's about a man reflecting. 'When I'm lying in the arms of the woman I love, I'm completely at peace with the world', that's the opening line. This man is considering his relationship, he can't sleep and he's wondering and worrying about life and where everything is going. But with his woman beside him, he knows that he's not scared any more. All the worries just disappear when he realises the strength of the love that he has. And the things that he personally believes in - which are really the things that I believe... this might sound daft to you, but one of the lines is 'When I think about the ways of the other world (I mean the spiritual world), I believe that they can hear every word that we speak - and I'm not scared any more' You know, it's about the knowledge that there is another dimension, and that we are being helped and watched over. And then the man looks at his children and he knows that if anything happens to them, then he will defend them with the power of his love to the very last drop of his blood. He's just finding strength within him, in reflection. It's a terrific song, and it's a very big ending. It's nice, I particularly like that one."
