What Am I Afraid Of

What Am I Afraid Of? is a Shining Time Station Halloween song from Scare Dares.


There are squeaky things who creaky wings
Who would love to sneak up behind me
There are ghosts I know who wherever I go
If they wanted, they'd quickly find me
But my dad he said they're inside my head
And my fears are all gonna fade
So what am I afraid of?
What am I afraid of?

There are kids at school who are kind of cruel
They just love to tease and dare me
But I take their dares take 'em anywhere
And pretend that their dares don't scare me
If I just refuse not a lot I blues
They're not even kids in my grade
So what am I afraid of?
What am I afraid of?

I'm not afraid of thunderstorms in the spring
That's kind of lucky
I'm not afraid of garden snakes
Though a lot of kids think they're yucky
I'm not afraid of hornets nests
Or English tests or household pests
But some things you'd walk right by
Make me feel I'm gonna cry

There are times I think if I just don't blink
When those other kids tease and taunt me
If I simply can show on my man
They can try but they'll never daunt me
Yes, they'll eat their words, I'll show all those nerds
Of what stuff I'm really made
So what am I afraid of?
What am I afraid of?
Maybe I'm afraid of
Only being afraid
