"Not all who wander are lost." - JRR Tolkien


VERSE 1:
you're lying in your bed
with your face down in the pillow
some days seem to know you too well
you look, your eyes are red
with tiny black tears stained on your cheek
some days seem to know you too well

CHORUS:
don't be afraid to cry
don't be afraid
to wear your heart on your sleeve
don't be afraid to let it all out
do not be afraid

VERSE 2:
you're walking through your world
wishing for some kind of redemption
some days seem to know you too well
beneath that beautiful smile of yours
is a lonely heart breaking in two
some days seem to know you too well

CHORUS:
don't be afraid to cry
don't be afraid
to wear your heart on your sleeve
don't be afraid to let it all out
do not be afraid

BRIDGE:
lift your face to the sky
wipe the tears from those pretty eyes
take the time to sew things together
save your wishes for something better

ENDING:
don't be afraid to cry
don't be afraid
to wear your heart on your sleeve
don't be afraid to let it all out
do not be...
don't be afraid to stand up for yourself
don't be afraid
to break those chains
always remember
why God put you in this place
do not...
...be afraid

I wrote this song for a old friend of mine who was going through a bit of a difficult time in her life. She is aware of this song, but she has no idea that it's about her. Hehe.
