i was driving home

about two o' clock

you know my head was light

and the road was dark

back to my home

is where i'm going to creep

i pray to god

that you're aleep

wish i hadn't drank so many beers

reminds me of

my list of fears

my list of fears

number ten on my list of fears is losing all of my hair

number nine on my list of fears is being unaware

number eight of my list of fears is being drunk in my car and not being able to steer

my list of fears

avoiding cops

i weave and dodge

until i'm safe

back in my garage

i see no lights

and that's a real good sign

don't want to see

that little girl of mine

i got something ringing in my ears

reminds me of

my list of fears

my list of fears

number seven on my list of fears is the threat of nuclear war

number six on my list of fears is people thinking that i'm a bore

number five on my list of fears is hearing things that i really don't want to hear

my list of fears

unlock the ddoor

and i stumble in

you know i can't afford

to make a din

upstairs i crawl

to the bedroom door

my knees are weak

and my throat is sore

feeling dizzy, wish my head would clear

reminds me of

my list of fears

my list of fears

number four on my list of fears is dying and going to hell

number three on my list of fears is being locked up in a cell

number two on my list of fears is the effects of the drugs i've been taking all these years

my list of fears

the room is dark

but i smell your tears

i will comfort you

i will ease your fears

i strike a match

i turn the candle on

i burn my hand

when i see you've gone

packed your things but left behind your tears

reminds me of my list of fears

my list of fears

number one on my list of fears is coming home to find that you're not here

number one on my list of fears is coming home to find that you're not here
