nothing to be afraid of

little bitty hairs on the back of my neck
keep standing on end, but
what the heck
ain’t nothing out there to be afraid of
ain’t nothing out there but untried love
ain’t nothing out there but your smile

like the end of the pool where I’m over my head
paddling like crazy
avoiding death
ain’t nothing out there to be afraid of
ain’t nothing out there but untried love
ain’t nothing out there but your smile

and it’s not that I’m afraid of the way you look at me
it’s nothing that you said that is overwhelming me
but when I realize where this is going now
it’s not a stretch to think that falling
ends with me being on the ground

standing on the roller coaster as it makes an outside loop
mouthing my delight
all about you
ain’t nothing out there to be afraid of
ain’t nothing out there but untried love
ain’t nothing out there but your hand

watching monsoon clouds roll o’er the mountain’s head
like a lightning flash
just like you said
ain’t nothing out there to be afraid of
ain’t nothing out there but untried love
ain’t nothing out there but your hand

and it’s not that I’m afraid of the way you look at me
it’s nothing that you said that is overwhelming me
but when I realize where this is going now
it’s not a stretch to think that falling
ends with me being on the ground
