Lyrics

What R U So Afraid Of by Ileana Burdine

Knock knock, Opportunity is at my door and
I lock myself inside I'm so unsure
my chest aches every time I try to breathe
And I can't rest; I'm filled with such anxiety
In the mirror I can see
Someone who looks like me but weary

What are you so afraid of? To trust I'll find my way
What are you so afraid of? That neither path is safe
What are you so afraid of? I can't even sleep
Why am I so afraid of being me

I dread the silence in between the gales
'cause in my head I hear the words 'what if you fail'
I'm so tired of the chattering that holds me back
my desire has gotta get onto a moving track
In the mirror I can see
Someone who looks like me but weary

What are you so afraid of? To trust I'll find my way
What are you so afraid of? That neither path is safe
What are you so afraid of? I can't even sleep
Why am I so afraid of being me

Have I sabotaged myself
blamed it all on someone else?
Is the shadow 'round the corner a reflection?
then I need to figure out a new direction

What are you so afraid of? To trust I'll find my way
What are you so afraid of? That neither path is safe
What are you so afraid of? I can't even sleep
Why am I so afraid of being me

Why am I so afraid of being me
Why am I so afraid of being me
