I’m not afraid of the dark
Since you took me to that house
Where there were no lights
Just candles and lamps!
You taught me how to embrace the dark
And to use it to my advantage

I’m not afraid of heights
Since you took me bungee jumping
They strapped us together so tight
And you whispered something in my ear
Something only I could hear

I’m not afraid of water
Since you took me swimming in that river
I was scared I would drown
But you were next to me the whole time
Urging me to relax and enjoy myself
