Etheridge, Melissa - Fearless Love Lyrics

When I woke up I was 17
You kissed my lips in a bad bad dream
Showed me things aren't what they appear to be
Called me angel and set me free
You gave me life in the cold cold dark
But you ran away in the mornings spark
Made me think that reality
Is not where I want to be

I am what I am and
I am what I am afraid of
Oh what am I afraid of
I need a fearless love
Don't need to fear the end
If you can't hold me now
You will never hold me again
I want to live my life
Pursuing all my happiness
I want a fearless love
I won't settle for anything less

I've walked my path had worlds collide
I lost my way and I fooled my pride
This lover's ache wouldn't feel so strange
If I could only change

But I am what I am and
I am what I am afraid of
So what am I afraid of
I need a fearless love
Don't need to fear the end
If you can't hold me now
You will never hold me again
I want to live my life
Pursuing all my happiness
I want a fearless love
I won't settle for anything less

Now I'm not here to lay the blame
I understand when you hold a flame
Heads will shake heads will turn
And sometimes you just get burned

  6. Scarl The Snarl

    See, when I was younger I didn't really know why I liked this song so much. I was super in the closet you see and had no clue. Years down the road now, this song crosses my path again as I'm preparing to ask my girlfriend to marry me and right now I'm having a big ole "Oh" moment.

  7. soultree serenade

    I used to listen to this ALot on the way to and from work, this song, breathe, similar features, you can sleep while I drive, I want to come over.

  8. soultree serenade

    She's. Kinda like the female Rod Stewart lol..when I was younger I loved her , Traci Chapman and K d Lang music. Good stuff, ladies

  9. soultree serenade

    Everytime I hear her music. It takes me to a cool, calm place , im driving in a drop top on an open road in solace..a free bird. She really does , *Rock

  10. soultree serenade

    Always a fan of Melissa e

  11. Stephanie B

    LOVE IS LOVE Melissa you help me to be fearless.

  12. Douglas Steven Luna

    Melissa Etheridge... an original but definitely in the realm of Bruce Springsteen as far as performances and writing.

  13. Lisa Snyder

    Years after I finally stopped looking for this, mostly convinced such a thing was too rare for me to find in the limited sampling of humanity to which I have access, I found this song. Thank you. Even as content as I am with "just friends", this song still speaks to me, of lost loves and why they were lost. I still believe it's too rare to be found, but I also still wish I could have found it, somewhere, with someone. I couldn't have been the only one in the world....

  14. ACC AnsonClawChannel

    Just remind me of USJ😂😂😂
    Full of energy after hearing this.

  15. Fornbjorn

    I guess that girl packed her things and moved on to a new Land of Departure. Good for her.

    I really love this song. Melissa Etheridge has really done her best. I also thoroughly enjoyed seeing Ms. Willa Holland (Thea Queen in TV show Arrow). Both of these women are really extremely beautiful and talented. My best wishes to both Ms. Melissa Etheridge & Ms. Willa Holland.

    Well, let's see. She's won an Academy Award for "I Need to Wake Up", has been nominated for 15 Grammy awards and won twice ("Ain't It Heavy" and "Come To My Window"), has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and yes, has had 6 songs in the Billboard Top 40 over the years.

    I'm going to go on a limb and say that's the mark of a strong artist, not "cause she is a lesbian."
