The Beths – I Told You That I Was Afraid Lyrics

The Beths I Told You That I Was Afraid Lyrics

I told you that I was afraid
That I would have a bad trip fall asleep and never wake
They told me back at school that it would happen
I believed it till I didn’t

I told you that I was afraid
Of stating my opinion in a clear and honest way
They told me in my youth it wasn’t needed
Some thoughts are best deleted
And everyone agreed it

I don’t know what I’m getting up for

I’m not getting taller anymore
So when I fall
It’s always the same distance as before
You’d think that I’d learn to anticipate it
By the millionth time I ate it

And I told you that I wasn’t scared
That even if I fractured every bone I didn’t care
I never told a lie so confidently
But you let me down so gently
The concrete barely bent me

I don’t know what I’m getting up for
One more year then I’ll look at the score
I don’t know what I’m getting up for

I told you that I was afraid
That everyone around holds me in some secret disdain
That I was held a fool so far deluded
You told me that was stupid
But could never really prove it

I don’t know what I’m getting up for
(I told you that I was afraid)
One more year then I’ll look at the score
I don’t know what I’m getting up for
