Summer winds on sinking sands
A bitter rain upon my hands
Dreading every waking day
Reason came and reason left
The scarlet stain did not forget
What I could not explain away

With no pennies on my eyes
Fear had its ice-cold grip upon my life

But I’m not afraid any more
Yeah, I think I finally opened up the door
No, I’m not afraid any more
And I’m ready to reach out for something more

Tried and true, black or blue
I used to think, “Man, what’s the use?”
When everything turns bad in the end
You play your cards and try to be
The changing world you’d like to see
But people will let you down, my friend

The sky grew dim the curtains flew
Then a light came and I saw the truth

And I’m not afraid any more
Yeah, I think I finally opened up the door
No, I’m not afraid any more
And I’m ready to reach out for something more
I’m ready to reach out for something more

I’m not afraid of dying
And I’m not afraid of crying
I can’t wait to go on living
I’m gonna give it all I got
‘Cause the lens of life will linger
Just keep singing for the singer
And the song will never end
I’m gonna take it from the top

‘Cause I’m not afraid any more
And I think I finally opened up the door
Yeah, I’m not afraid any more
And I’m ready to reach out for something more

No, I’m not afraid any more
And I think I finally opened up the door
No, I’m not afraid any more
And I’m ready to reach out for something more
