Walk Unafraid

My best friend’s life changes today. We’ve always gotten a lot of strength from this song, so I’m posting this for you, Renae. I'm thinking about you.

R.E.M. : Walk Unafraid

As the sun comes up, as the moon goes down
These heavy notions creep around
It makes me think long ago
I was brought into this life a little lamb, a little lamb
Courageous, stumbling
Fearless was my middle name
But somewhere there I
Lost my way
Everyone walks the same
Expecting me to step
The narrow path they've laid
They claim to

Walk unafraid
I'll be clumsy instead
Hold my love me or leave me high.

Say 'keep within the boundaries if you want to play.'
Say 'contradiction only makes it harder.'
How can I be what I want to be?
When all I want to do is strip away
These stilled constraints
And crush this charade
Shred this sad masquerade
I don't need no persuading
I'll trip, fall, pick myself up and

Walk unafraid
I'll be clumsy instead
Hold my love me or leave me high.

If I have a bag of rocks to carry as I go
I just want to hold my head up high
I don't care what I have to step over
I'm prepared to look you in the eye
Look me in the eye
And if you see familiarity
Yhen celebrate the contradiction
Help me when I fall to

Walk unafraid
I'll be clumsy instead
jold my love me or leave me high.
Walk unafraid
I'll be clumsy instead
Hold my love me or leave me high.

Up, 1998

Thinking about you Renae. Many of us have gone down this road, and found our way home. Hang in there.
