A Song from Dawn



Love or Fear
By Dawn Zurlinden and James Nihan

- Voice One -
I was born a perfect child
Imagination running wild
Free to laugh and free to sing
Not afraid of anything
I can't believe how quick I learned
In reaching out I might get burned
The song inside me slowly hushed
I told myself I shouldn't trust

- Voice Two -
I was born a barefoot boy
My first steps were steps of joy
Had an open heart, an open mind
And not one reason not to shine
Then all the lessons, all the laws
Taught me I was fraught with flaws
I believed, so I shut down
Till who I was could not be found

-Chorus-
Love or fear? love or fear?
Why do I ask the question when the answer is so clear?
I only have two choices to choose while I am here
Love? Fear?
I think I've played this game long enough
I can't lose if I choose love

- Voice One -
I'm tied to my history
By a string of tangled memories
When I feel the knots inside
I just want to run and hide
I'm not certain where we're bound
Tomorrow will you be around?
I worry that I'll lose the love
I don't believe I'm worthy of

- Voice Two -
Even though your kiss is sweet
Voices warn me to retreat
But this time I'm not listening
I want to feel everything
That we felt when we were young
That song of love can still be sung
Let's sink into our true desire
Surrender to the heart of fire

Chorus
Love or fear? love or fear?
Why do I ask the question when the answer is so clear?
I only have two choices to choose while I am here
Love? Fear?
I think I've played this game long enough
I can't lose if I choose love
I can't lose if I choose love, love, love, love
