I gave myself a talking to,I caught myself up in the mirror,
And after all was said and done,that's what's left,a man in fear.
Afraid to lose what's most important to him here and now,
Afraid those lookin up to him,may be someday lookin down
Afraid to be a failure,afraid not to be around.
Afraid no matter how hard I try you'll always be let down!
Afraid you deserve a lot better,and my kids so much more!
Afraid I can't give the world you deserve,from shore to shinin shore.
Afraid all I've got to give will never be enough.
Afraid to let myself fall so deeply far in love.
Afraid I'll somehow always be,consumed from all this fear.
Afraid I'll eventually find myself again up in this mirror!
