About Afraid

"I'm Afraid of Americans" is a single by David Bowie from the 1997 album Earthling. The song, co-written by Bowie and Brian Eno, was originally written during Bowie's studio sessions for the 1995 album Outside but was not released until a rough mix appeared on the soundtrack to the film Showgirls, and was subsequently remade for Earthling. A top 20 hit in Canada, the rework also peaked at number 66 on the Billboard Hot 100 and spent 16 weeks on that chart. This was the final Bowie single which charted on the Hot 100 until "Blackstar" and "Lazarus" following his death.

I wish I was smarter
I got so lost on the shore
I wish I was taller 
Things really matter to me

But I put my face in tomorrow
I believe we're not alone 
I believe in Beatles
I believe my little soul has grown 
And I'm still so afraid

Yes, I'm still so afraid
Yea, I'm still so afraid on my own
On my own 
What made my life so wonderful?
What made me feel so bad?
I used to wake up the ocean
I used to walk on clouds 
If I put faith in medication
If I can smile a crooked smile 
If I can talk on television 
If I can walk an empty mile
Then I won't feel afraid
No, I won't feel afraid
I won't be Be afraid
