About I'm Not Scared

"I'm Not Scared" is a 1988 song recorded by Patsy Kensit’s British pop band Eighth Wonder. The group's fifth single, the first single from the album Fearless, was released in 1988. It achieved success in France, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and the UK, where it was a top ten hit. Written by the Pet Shop Boys, the original version contains several words in French. "J'ai pas peur", the B-side of the vinyl, is the French adaptation of "I'm Not Scared". The 12" "disco mix" combines the two versions into one long mix. The Pet Shop Boys also released their own version of the song, with Neil Tennant vocals, on the album Introspective. Slant Magazine ranked the song 62nd in its 100 Greatest Dance Songs list, adding: "'I'm Not Scared' is unmistakably a Lowe/Tennant composition, with sharp staccato synth lines, a fluctuating bassline, histrionic lyrics ending in curly, figurative question marks (...), and – on the extended Disco Version – dramatic string stabs".

Your life's a mystery, mine is an open book
If I could read your mind, I think I'd take a look
I don't care
Baby, I'm not scared

What have you got to fight? What do you need to prove?
You're always telling lies, and that's the only truth
I don't care
Baby, I'm not scared

Tonight the streets are full of actors
I don't know why
Oh, take these dogs away from me
Before they, they bite

What have you got to say of shadows in your past?
I thought that, if you paid, you'd keep them off our backs
But I don't care
Baby, I'm not scared

What have you got to hide? Who will it compromise?
Where do we have to be, so I can laugh and you'll be free?
I'd go anywhere
Baby, I don't care
I'm not scared
I don't care
Baby, I'm not scared

Tonight the streets are full of actors
I don't know why
Oh, take these dogs away from me
Before they, they bite
Tonight I fought and made my mind up
I know it's right
I know these dogs still snap around us
But I can, I can fight

If I was you, if I was you
I wouldn't treat me the way you do
If I was you, if I was you
I wouldn't treat me the way you do - you
If I was you, if I was you
I wouldn't treat me the way you do
If I was you, if I was you
I wouldn't treat me the way you do - you

I'm not scared
Baby, I don't care
I'd go anywhere
Baby, I'm not scared
I'm not scared
Oh, I'm not scared
