  • Lyrics: She said…what would you do if you weren’t afraid? Would you finally let me in? And if you could take back the mistakes you have made, would you be happy in your skin? And He said…what would I do if I weren’t afraid? I fear most of us never know. We just carry on, apprehensions fade, as our passions slowly grow. Like a river to the ocean won’t you run to me, and help me take my life less seriously. ‘Cause in your arms I’m feelin’ so carefree. Like a river to the ocean — won’t you run to me. He said…I can’t get these words out of my throat they seem to be stuck so tightly. And it’s getting hard to keep myself afloat, I fear I’m drowning in your sea. And She said…never mind treading water only, we’ve got so much more to lose. And I don’t want to be left lonely, but I think I may have to choose. Chorus Everybody wonders. Everybody doubts. Some answers come like thunder, others come like droughts. So treasure all your answers, but keep your questions secure. ‘Cause your truths can become your cancers, while your longings remain pure. Chorus And what would you do if you weren’t afraid? I fear most of us never know…
