Scared of Lonely

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’m in this fight and I’m swinging, and my arms are getting tired
I’m trying to beat this emptiness, but I’m running out of time
I’m sinking in the sand and I can barely stand
And I’m lost in this dream, I need you to hold me
I’m scared of lonely
I try to be patient, but I’m hurting deep inside
And I can’t keep waiting, I need comfort late at night
And I can’t find my way, won’t you lead me home?
Cause I’m lost in this dream, I need you to hold me

[Chorus]
I’m scared of lonely
And I’m scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I’m scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I’m scared of being alone
I can’t seem to breathe when I am lost in this dream, I need you to hold me
I’m scared of lonely
I’m scared of lonely

[Verse 2]
I cry at night, cause my baby’s too far to be by my side
To wipe away these tears of mine, so I hold my pillow tight
To imagine you would stretch your hand looking for mine
Cause I’m lost in this dream , I need you to hold me

[Chorus]
I’m scared of lonely
And I’m scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I’m scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I’m scared of being alone
I can’t seem to breathe when I am lost in this dream, I need you to hold me

[Bridge]
I need your strength when nobody is around
Cause I’m tired of this emptiness, I think I’m drowning
I can’t be lonely no more
Cause I’m lost in this dream, I need you to hold me

[Chorus]
I’m scared of lonely
And I’m scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I’m scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I’m scared of being alone
I can’t seem to breathe when I am lost in this dream, I need you to hold me
I’m scared of lonely
And I’m scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I’m scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I’m scared of being alone
I can’t seem to breathe when I am lost in this dream, I need you to hold me
I’m scared of lonely…..I’m scared of lonely…..

    What a beautiful song! I haven’t listened to many Beyonce songs (other than what was played on the radio), but I really liked this one. Thanks for sharing!

      Yes! Her Sasha Fierce tour was amazing too. I didn’t go but I saw a TV special on it. Beyonce is the best. 😊
