  • I miss my friends and my guitar
    and knowing I can travel far
    but now, i'm only standing here
    completely paralyzed with fear

    the fear of who i'll come to be
    of all the weaknesses in me
    I truly thought i was prepared
    but now i'm panicked, and i'm scared

    But how did i become a coward ?

    I lived alone and i was free
    to do whatever came to me
    but i was craving to share
    If only i could ever dare

    to care for someone else but me
    If our two created three ?
    but can i let go of the thrill
    turn it into something real

    how did i become a coward ?

    little girl, little boy
    do you feel my fear and do you feel my joy ?
    now you've entered my body, straight to heart and into my soul...
    come ... grow ...

    and now a voice inside my head
    Is telling me to go ahead
    you're not a coward

    But how did i become a coward ? Writer/s: DAVID DONATIEN, YAEL NAIM
