I'm Not Afraid

Album: Frank Sinatra's Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 (1971)
  • One afternoon I came to hear
    You sing a soft song into my ear
    Who would have thought quite by chance
    We might engage in a loving dance?

    Coming together, coming apart
    Lost in diversions, dancing stars
    Caught in the quiet, off on our own
    Coming together, standing alone

    Are you afraid? I'm not afraid

    What about you, what about me?
    Two years from now where will we be?
    Each of us gone our separate ways
    Lost in a headlong passage of days

    Maybe, we might give love a try
    Extending the moment before goodbye
    And for a gentle moment in time
    We'll take what pleasure people can find

    Are you afraid? I'm not afraid

    What is for real, what is false?
    All of us seem to be caught in a waltz
    Turning around, turning again
    When will the dancing ever end?

    As for us, you and me
    Our eyes are open, we can see
    Both of us know where we've been
    Why must we both go dancing again?

    Come join the dancing, come join the waltz
    Don't look too closely at my faults
    Why can't I die here in your arms?
    Safe from the night and safe from the dawn

    Back to the nothing that had no name
    Back to the nowhere from where I came
    Don't worry of me, I know what I am
    Where I'm goin' and where I've been

    I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid
    No, I'm not afraid
