Burton Cummings — I'm Scared lyrics

"IM SCARED" - burton cummings
Said I'm scared, lord I'm scared, I'm terrified
Never been much on religion but I sure never like to hear the call
I'm scared lordy lord I'm shakin' I'm petrified
Never been much on religion but I showed up, just fell down on my knees
Heard the choir singing something about good will torn men
And even then sleeping in heavenly peace
Stopped by to see st thomas
On a cold and dreary new york afternoon
Something in the air was oh so rare
I don't know what it was but I know that it's still right there
And I'm scared lordy lord I'm shaken I'm terrified,
Never been much on religion but I showed up and just fell down on my knees
(short instrumental)
Livin' in confusion, searchin for truth that I'd never found
I needed somethign to really believe
Turned toward the heavens on a dark and stormy winter afternoon
Something in the air was oh so rare
I'm not really sure what it was but I know for sure that it's still right there,
Scared, hey hey hey hey hey hey I'm terrified
Never been much in religion but I showed up fell down on my knees
Oh oh oh oh oh I'm scared you know I'm shakin I'm layin awake thinking about her
Now I'm terrified
Never been much on religion but I sure enough would like to hear the call
Common now give me a sign your listening to me
You hear me talkin you hear my cryin,
Its confusin to me lord I'm terrified
Never been much on religion but I showed up,
Just fell down on my knees
Oh oh oh oh oh
