    Lyrics

    I reckon fear is like a, sort of
    If you, if you're afraid of something that isn't there
    Sometimes I do have fears

    Shaking a bit, like I've seen ghosts or something
    Sometimes I do have fears
    Sometimes I do have fears

    My mother's afraid of the subway, it's a living bad dream
    I hold her hand as the doors close and she pales and stifles a scream
    Ali's afraid of ad-libbing, of improvising at jams
    She is not very happy right now and spends all her money on grams

    And Ade is afraid of commitments so Carla dumped him today
    She was very disappointed, she was hoping he'd beg her to stay
    And Ayo he just wants a girlfriend, he's afraid of dying alone
    But he doesn't go out very much, sits at home a lot getting stoned

    You see fear is only holding us back
    Look closely amongst all your peers
    There is usually one thing that keeps us off track
    It is fear, it is fear, it is fear

    You see fear is only holding us back
    Look closely amongst all your peers
    There is usually one thing that keeps us off track
    It is fear, it is fear, it is fear

    Ella is worried about her weight, she won't eat in public anymore
    She is fucking her ex again, when they've finished she sleeps on the floor
    And Nate has a heart of gold but give it away he will not
    His mother abandoned him at ten, it's a pain he has never forgot

    And Mary's afraid of herself, her sentences often cut half
    She will never give her opinion, she's afraid that people might laugh
    And I am afraid of sharks, I will not swim out past my head
    And sometimes I worry my boyfriend will die, my first love is already dead

    You see fear is only holding us back
    Look closely amongst all your peers
    There is usually one thing that keeps us off track
    It is fear, it is fear, it is fear

    You see fear is only holding us back
    Look closely amongst all your peers
    There is usually one thing that keeps us off track
    It is fear, it is fear, it is fear

    Candy is having a baby, she fears she will be like her mom
    Her friends say relax, take a deep breath and march to a different drum
    Sachas afraid of her Marco, she think's that it's all her fault
    But if he did what he does to a stranger
    He'd be locked up and charged with assault

    You see fear is only holding us back
    Look closely amongst all your peers
    There is usually one thing that keeps us off track
    It is fear, it is fear, it is fear

    You see fear is only holding us back
    Look closely amongst all your peers
    There is usually one thing that keeps us off track
    It is fear, it is fear, it is fear

    You see fear is only holding us back
    Look closely amongst all your peers
    There is usually one thing that keeps us off track
    It is fear, it is fear, it is fear

    Holding us back, holding us back
    Holding us back, holding us back
    Holding us back, holding us back
    Holding us back, holding us back
