Jarren Benton - Scared Lyrics

[Jarren Benton:]
I'm scared, I'm scared of living, I'm scared of dying
I'm scared of falling, I'm scared flying, I'm scared of failure, I'm scared of trying
I'm scared, I'm scared of losing my kids
Suppressing all of my emotions, scared I might flip and lose me [?]
Nigga I'm scared, I'm scared this drinking might take control
Becoming so co-dependent, losing my soul, just thought that I should let you know that
I'm scared, I'm scared of turning out like my daddy
Don't harbor no hard feelings, he may've made mistakes, but still glad the nigga had me
I'm scared, I'm scared my grandma gon' pass away
Any day could be her last, I tell her stay strong and fuck what the doctors say
I'm scared, I'm scared that God don't exist
I'm scared of that dark place I used reside when I ain't had shit
Nigga I'm scared that me and my mom will never get close
Success can be so scary special, but failure's all that I know
I'm scared that my wife gon' end up leaving me
Cause I get shut down so easily, now I can see why you don't believe in me
Cause I'm scared

I've been livin' like a stranger in my own head lately
Running out of gas, now go ahead and take me
Look at this monster, yeah this is what you make me
So I scream from the top of my lungs
Top of my lungs
Cause I can barely breathe no more air
I can barely, I can barely breathe, no more

[Jarren Benton:]
I'm scared, but ain't scared of none of y'all fuck niggas
I'm scared of gettin' my heart broken, I'm sorry that's why I don't fuck wit' ya
I'm scared of love, I'm scared of pain, I'm scared of music, I'm scared of fame
I'm scared of fucking up my kids psychologically, now who's to blame?
I'm scared I might die alone, some days I might cry alone
I walk along these empty rows, scared I might not make it back home
I'm scared I might lose another friend, I'm scared struggle and sufferin'
I'm scared of my insecurities, but they always there like I'm stuck with them
I'm scared to die over nuttin, I'm scared to stand up for something
I'm scared of what you might think of me if [?] substance
At night I'm scared to go to sleep cause I don't wanna have another nightmare
I'm scared if everything fell apart and I was hurt you wouldn't be right there
And I'm scared, Lord help me overcome fears
It's sunshine after tears, I've been afraid for so many years
And I apologise for anything I've done and pray [?] to family and peers
But I'm a fuckin' man and I'll be goddamed if I'ma drown in all of these fears
Nigga who's scared?

I've been livin' like a stranger in my own head lately
Running out of gas, now go ahead and take me
Look at this monster, yeah this is what you make me
So I scream from the top of my lungs
Top of my lungs
Cause I can barely breathe no more air
I can barely, I can barely breathe, no more

[Big Rube:]
I'm petrified
I don't like this feeling, gotta rectify it
This fight or flight like open mics, when safety's off and I'm next to fire
Livin' scared's livin' dead, fuck being pathetic, I remain kinetic
Steady move forward while trending up, but greater heights mean harder falls
Ain't gotta run down no waterfalls, tryna master fear when you hear the call
[?] stand above two-step it up, we can break the bank with these bouncing heads
If you say you can't you already lost to depressing thoughts, it'll drive a wedge
Between you and success, don't see you're blessed
How can you [?] what you can't percieve?
Fear and loathing's just evil clothing, our core is good, but we just don't believe
We deserve the best and I serve the best by giving you what we can't retrieve
This life we live is a precious fight, don't take the punches, gotta bob and weave
[?] but the mind will snap if all [?]

I've been livin' like a stranger in my own head lately
Running out of gas, now go ahead and take me
Look at this monster, yeah this is what you make me
So I scream from the top of my lungs
Top of my lungs
Cause I can barely breathe no more air
I can barely, I can barely breathe, no more

  16. Steven Willet

    This song reminds everytime how far i have came emotionally. I use to have many of these fears: fear to try, fear to fail, fear to lose the one i love, fear to die alone. The vicious cycle of that is if you are afraid to try and such, you will love in the end.

  17. Ryan Quinn

    32k views yet people heard this and when he dropped 'Mink Coat Killa' his videos only got roughly 1k views each. So many 😴.

  18. AXY Offical

    Never sleep on Jarren. He's truth. It's real and relatable. Complex and full of heart. Music has to have heart. He's not an entertainer he's an artist.

  19. James Rios

  25. SubwingOTR

    Jarren killed this song hard, but I'm sorry Big Rube's part kinda ruins the vibe. Good message, just didn't flow well imo

  26. HarRry Pogoi

    Thanks for this song. I like this album. I downloaded your full albums and listen to them on repeat (no homo) at work the whole entirety.. like with the skits in it they just like watching a movie lol. the hours goes fast asf. but your words either trip me the fuck out or fuck with my emotions. your shit hits me harder than hopsins and Mr wright's. but they both sick too. one day in my existance I'd wanna kick it with ya. just to chill kick back and see if my mind is as buzzy as yours. mean g. Holla from new Zealand.

  54. Robby Mckey

    I love this new song bruh

  55. ConseQuent

    jarren really is one of the most talented artist out now but he's getting slept on imo


    +Call Me Soul You obviously don't know how to look for good music. He raps about real shit dumbass. He's got an amazing flow, great lyricism, and sends real messages. If you don't respect those things in music, I see how you don't like Jarren, and it's hard to respect your musical opinion for not liking key concepts to any sort of good or meaningful music.

    mac mittens

    bet he gets on strange after this tour with big homie.enough time has passed

    Kirk S

    John Doe I hope I love strange and Jarren


    Something _ Cause in an interview with Tech, he feels it makes the most sense to sign Jarren.

    Kirk S

    @XVoneTV Yah just it needed a bit of time and i think 10 months is long enough

  56. Drew Martinez

    happy to see the views are a little higher for the vid. people sleeping on jarren hard right now.
