Walking Away

It's about how the fear of failure can overwhelm you, meaning that you become too afraid to try for anything, in fear of embarrassment

I stood on the edge and waited

For the strength to fall into the light

I knew my demons bested me as I hesitated

Because I knew I’d lose tonight

 

I cast my mind back through the years

Back to promises I made, never delivered

I walked to the door of the cage

I opened my eyes, and began to walk away

 

How easy it is to walk away

When the fear of failure consumes your heart

How easy it is to fade away

As the fear of defeat tears you apart

 

I breathed in and still no hope

For the power to push through the wall

Weight of the world upon me, I struggle to cope

Still with the fear that I’ll fall

 

I sigh with despair and tears in my eyes

All of those times I stumbled back

I never could walk through the cage door

I could never muster the strength to attack

 

How easy it is to walk away

When the fear of failure consumes your heart

How easy it is to fade away

As the fear of defeat tears you apart

 

One day I’ll change

As the darkness inside strives to deny

You’ll never make it out of here alive

As despair falls and there’s tears in my eyes

Will I ever fight, will I make it out of here alive

 

How easy it is to walk away

When the fear of failure consumes your heart

How easy it is to fade away

As the fear of defeat tears you apart

The End
