lyrics

Don’t be afraid of what you will find
Inside and outside, up on the mountain top, down in the diamond mine
Don’t be afraid to search out all the ends of the earth
Your dreams are much bigger and brighter and more wonderful
Than you give them credit for

Don’t be afraid, be yourself
Be alone, wander around, forgetting exactly where you are
Don’t be alarmed, when everything falls apart
When those you love run away, vanish or fade in the dark
It happens

If you know what you are, nothing can harm you
No one can stop you from dreaming and living out all your beautiful dreams
If you know what you are, nothing will hurt you
And even the things that make you cry, will only add fuel to your hearth

So go. Love and be loved. Feel and be felt
Fashion an amulet around your blood
And go. Love and be loved, find and be found
And don’t ever look back
Don’t look back

Don’t be afraid, be yourself
Be alone, wander around, forgetting exactly where you are
Don’t be alarmed, when everything falls apart
When those you love run away, vanish or fade in the dark
Don’t be ashamed when falling down
Just stand up, shout around, all that you are now
What are you now

If you know who you are, nothing will harm you
No one can stop you from dreaming or living out all your beautiful dreams
If you know what you are, nothing will hurt you
Even the things that make you cry, will only add fuel to your hearth

So go. Love and be loved. Feel and be felt
Fashion an amulet around your blood
And go. Love and be loved, find and be found
And don’t ever look back
Don’t look back
