Scared of Lonely
by Beyoncé



I'm in this fight and I'm swinging and my arms are getting tired
I'm trying to beat this emptiness, but I'm running out of time
I'm sinking in the sand and I can barely stand
I'm lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
I try to be patient, but I'm hurting deep inside
And I can't keep waiting; I need comfort late at night
And I can't find my way; won't you lead me home?
'Cause I'm lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

[Chorus]
I'm scared of lonely
And I'm scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I'm scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I'm scared of being alone
I can't seem to breathe when I am
Lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
I'm scared of lonely

I cry at night 'cause my baby's too far to be by my side
To wipe away these tears of mine, so I hold my pillow tight
To imagine you would stretch your hand looking for mine
'Cause I'm lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

[Chorus]

I need your strength when nobody's around
'Cause I'm tired of this emptiness; I think I'm drowning
I can't be lonely no more
'Cause I'm lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

[Chorus: x2]

I'm scared of lonely
I'm scared of lonely
