Afraid To Love
Written by Tommy Shaw, Brad Davis
Lead Vocals by Tommy Shaw

Ever since I can remember
I've always had this image in my mind
The way my mama had my daddy
Seemed to loose that little twinkle in their eye

Despite the fact love didn't last
I can't live in the past
No I don't wanna be afraid to love

There's cheaters and mistreaters
And the ones who end up beating all the odds
There's screamers and deceivers
And the ones who have been smiled upon by God

There's those like me and you
Who rise above the deep dark blue
I swear I'll never be afraid to love
Afraid to love,

I've seen the high falutin'
reinvent the institution of romance
They shot it full of loopholes
Where the seeds of love don't even stand a chance

A little joy a little pain
Like the sun shine like the rain
I'll never be like them
Afraid to love
Afraid to love

Afraid to love.
