  • I'm not afraid of anything at all
    Not dying in a fire, not being broke again
    I'm not afraid of living on a fault line
    'Cause nothing ever shakes me, nothing makes me cry

    Not a plane going down
    In the ocean and drowning

    Watched the world from the sidelines
    Had nothing to prove
    'Til you came into my life
    Gave me something to lose
    Now I know what it feels like
    To wannna go outside
    Like the shape of my outline

    I'm not afraid of going back to school
    I gave it up the first time, but I'll try again
    I'm not afraid of getting older
    Used to fetishize myself
    Now I'm talking to my house plants

    Not of being alone, oh
    In a room full of people

    Watching the world from the sidelines
    Had nothing to prove
    'Til you came into my life
    Gave me something to lose
    Now I know what it feels like
    To want to go outside
    Like the shape of my outline

    And I used to think
    You could hear the ocean in a seashell
    What a childish thing Writer/s: Marshall Kenneth Vore, Phoebe Lucille Bridgers, Ruby Rain Henley
