  • When I woke up I was seventeen
    You kissed my lips in a bad bad dream
    Showed me things aren't what they appear to be
    Called me angel and set me free

    You gave me life in the cold cold dark
    But you ran away in the morning's spark
    Made me think that reality
    Oh is not where I want to be

    but I am what I am and
    I am what I am afraid of
    Oh what am I afraid of
    I need a fearless love
    Don't need to fear the end
    Oh if you can't hold me now
    You will never hold me again
    I want to live my life
    Pursuing all my happiness
    I want a fearless love
    I won't settle for anything less

    I've walked my path had worlds collide
    I lost my way and I fooled my pride
    This lover's ache wouldn't feel so strange
    If I could only change

    But I am what I am
    I am what I am afraid of
    So what am I afraid of
    I need a fearless love
    Don't need to fear the end
    oh if you can't hold me now
    You will never hold me again
    I want to live my life
    Pursuing all my happiness
    I want a fearless love
    I won't settle for anything less

    Now I'm not here to lay the blame
    I understand when you hold a flame
    Heads will shake, heads will turn
    And sometimes you just get burned

    I want a fearless love
    I need a fearless love

    I want a fearless love
    Don't need to fear the end
    Oh if you can't hold me now
    You will never hold me again
    I want to live my life
    Pursuing all my happiness

    I want a fearless love
    I won't settle for anything, anything less
    I need a fearless love
    I won't settle for anything less
    Oh,I want a fearless love
    I won't settle for anything less Writer/s: MELISSA ETHERIDGE

  • Pat from Virginia Beach, VaOnly the songwriter can tell you the real meaning behind the song. An "ex" can only put their meaning on it, which is exactly what the bitter Ms. Michaels did. I wonder if she likes "Indiana".....
  • Dee from New York, OrMelissa writes on many levels and only talks about 2 levels. Her 'ex' Tammy Etheridge sheds some light on Fearless that makes it seem like "fearless" means...free commitment-free love! Michaels even describes a fight the couple had over Etheridge's new album "Fearless Love."Tammy blogged this, but it was later deleted from her web page:"i even told you it was a break up album / and you lauged at me [...] and stomped off," she writes.Read more: http://bit.ly/33fsL0K
