Barry Manilow — Please Don't Be Scared lyrics

There's a light behind your eyes
I see it shining
It only fades when you cry
There's a heart that beats so strong
I feel it dyin'
When the night time lasts too long
Now you and I have lived out centuries
And all I can say is what you've offered to me.

Please don't be scared
'Cause I've stood there too.
Between survival and the right thing to do.
'Cause only the strong admit their fears
And if you really need me
I'll always be here.

The parties and the lights
Fade to memories in the still of the night.
And you wonder in your mind
If there's nothing left to show for all the time
'Cause feeling pains a hard way to know you're still alive
But someday someone will make you glad you survived.

So Please don't be scared, 'cause I've stood there too
Between survival and the right thing to do.
'Cause only the strong admit their fears
And if you really need me
I'll always be here.

'Cause feeling pains a hard way to know you're still alive.
But someday someone will make you glad you survived.

Please don't be scared.
'Cause I've stood there too.
Between survival and the right thing to do.
'Cause only the strong admit their fears and if you really need me
Oh, I'll always be here.
No matter where you are...
If you really need me...
I'm never far...
