[chorus; main pattern]
Gmaj7         Em7    |Bm
    I stand beside you, I face the future
Gmaj7          Em7  |Bm
    I'll admit to you I am afraid

I am afraid as I stand beside you
I have denied you, I am afraid

Bm 

[verse]
Bm                 |Bmadd4
  I am not drunk now, I am not pilled down
Gmaj7                  |Bmii
  My window's wound down, I am not brainwashed

I am not running, I am not hiding
My bet's still riding, I am afraid

                        x4
||:Gmaj7  Em7  |Bm     :||Bm     |

I swing you high-o, I swing you low-a
I see your eye-o, I see your grow-a
I hear you crying, your brother's dying
Be no more lying, I am afraid

[interlude]
|F  Dm |C  Am7 |F Bb |Ab  C# |F# Eb |Bb Bm |    |

I am afraid as I stand beside you
I have denied you, I am afraid
I stand beside you, I face the future
I'll admit to you I am afraid

By my religion I stand here naked
I cannot fake it, with God as witness
My little children who wait for feeding
I watch you bleeding, I am afraid

I am afraid as I stand beside you
I have denied you, I am afraid
I stand beside you, I face the future
I'll admit to you I am afraid

[outro]
