Words and music by David Bowie.

Lyrics

I wish I was smarter
I got so lost on the shore
I wish I was taller
Things really matter to me

But I put my face in tomorrow
I believe we're not alone
I believe in Beatles
I believe my little soul has grown

And I'm still
So afraid
Yes, I'm still
So afraid
Yeah, I'm still
So afraid
On my own
On my own

What made my life so wonderful?
What made me feel so bad?
I used to wake up the ocean
I used to walk on clouds

If I put faith in medication
If I can smile a crooked smile
If I can talk on television
If I can walk an empty mile

Then I won't
Feel afraid
No, I won't
Feel afraid
I won't be
Be afraid
Anymore

Anymore
And then I just won't be afraid
Anymore
And then I just won't be afraid
