1. Being Scared

We all get our feelings hurt
talking to each other
you say one thing
and I hear another

I move my hand just so
and you read a rejection
you don’t say a word
and I fear my reflection

oh there’s no end to being scared
oh top or bottom of the stairs

breakers of compassion
rolling around the world
I have been trying to catch one     
since I was a little girl 

I saw a woman playing drums
And I thought she might be our savior
She smiled so big it made me think
I might change my behavior  

oh there’s no end to being scared
oh top or bottom of the stairs

bought myself a pretty dress
to help protect my heart
every bullet is a test
my defense makes me a mark

oh there’s no end to being scared
oh top or bottom of the stairs
