Afraid of the Dark

(unreleased song, 1985)

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Verse 1:

I don't want to hold your hand
Why should I
We know I love another man
If I ask you to walk me home
Don't think I want you
I just don't want to walk alone

Chorus:

You don't turn me on
I'm not breathing hard
I'm not coming on
I'm just a
I'm just a
Afraid of the dark

Verse 2:

The dark is where the wrong confess
We light a candle
Pretending that our sin is blessed
Is love on of the Sacraments
Is life our penance
Maybe God will understand

Chorus:

You don't turn me on
I'm not breathing hard
I'm not coming on
I'm just a
I'm just a
Afraid of the dark

Bridge:

Afraid of the dark
You know I'm a
Afraid of the dark
You know, woo...

Chorus:

You don't turn me on
I'm not breathing hard
I'm not coming on
I'm just a
I'm just a
Afraid of the dark
