Don't Let It Scare You
©J.C. Ashbaker 2-5-2010

Close you eyes beneath the covers
Calm yourself and ease your mind
You can't live beyond the moment
You're just the passenger of time

Are there bones inside your closet?
Are there ghosts under your bed?
Can you sleep without the light on?
Have you seen the grateful dead?

Don't let it scare you, don't be afraid
Life's an illusion, the one that you made
So stay if you like it
Come and go as you please
But don't let it scare you
No, no, no nobody takes it when they leave

Jim, he found himself an answer
Janis told herself a lie
Everybody has their reasons
And we all feel they're justified

Our new ideas are now old fashion
Where did they go, why have they changed
We lost the spark, misplaced the passion
The truth is harder to explain

--Repeat Chorus--

Time can be your enemy or time can be your friend
Starts off a little slowly, and then speeds up at the end
--Repeat Chorus--
