Living In Fear

Living In Fear

Two people in the street —United together
taking every move with such care
One hoping the other won't leave
Time passes fast, without pain

[chorus]
Living in fear, are we all sincere?
Can we always look straight ahead
No disillusion, distractions, nor fears…
Always staying near
Two people in different places —Drawn apart
Time pullling them apart with allure
Both hoping the other is still there
Time drags out as the knife is thrust in

Two people no longer in the same game — The blade
The steel pushes deep but there's no pain
One pushing the blade, the other unaware
Time speeds forward toward confrontation

[chorus]

Two people back together — Stiff conversation
The pain is felt, of one who rubbed the salt
What is to be said?  The blood has been shed
The tears flow by, the blade now points the other way
I feel the pain and your anguish today

[chorus]

Two people again together —Reunited
Putting the pieces in place
Will the time pass from this standstill?

[chorus]

Always staying near…(repeat, fade)

(spoken) For the love is too strong to die, we'll live in fear.  From day to day for the other, and the love we share.
