Fear (Single)

by Candle



The first single from the Methodical Variations Volume 3 compilation. Fear is an existential song - one that intimately describes the ongoing struggle that Individuals face every single day.

The release also includes the exclusive B-Side, I'd Die For You - an old love song recently recorded as part of February Album Writing Month 2017 (FAWM 2017).

Comments regarding Fear from other FAWMers (FAWM participants):

"Your rendition of the lyrics fits perfectly. The song starts in a shy way and grows bolder, but not to the point where the theme is forgotten. Great improv."
@caterwauler fawm.org/fawmers/caterwauler/

"Wow, I love the spontaneity of this. Open B, I've never even tried that. Intriguing! I like the reverb you used, enough to be noticed but not drowning anything. Hypnotic, great job!"
@apertome fawm.org/fawmers/apertome/

"This is such a cool song. I tried to write a song about fear but this is so much better! You say so much with not many words. Very nice!"

Track Name: Fear
If I could
You know I might
I might do anything
Why not?
Why not do anything?
What's stopping me?
Except maybe all my fears…
My fears

There might have been a time
When I ran free
There might have been some time
When I could dream
But what's holding me back?
All my fears
All my fears…
Just those fears

Why do I fear anything at all?
Why do I fear anything at all?

Why do I fear anything at all?
I shouldn't fear
No no no…
No no no…
Yet I still fear…
Track Name: I'd Die For You
I don't know why I cried
I don't know what I did tonight
I don't know why I died
But I do know I have tried
Yet it seems all the dreams
Came crashing too soon
And I know in the end
I would die for you

So this is here to stay
So this is what lovers say
So this is torn away
And this is dying today
And it seems all our dreams
Came crashing true blue
And I know in the end
I would die for you


I knew when I came
I knew I was the same
I know all the shame
And I do know just what I became
And it seems all my dreams
Came crashing too soon
And I know in the end
I'd die for you
I would die for you
I'd die for you
