Magnificent beauty ebbs the flow of time and fear is a dirty thief

If the scary things scare you
And you're just scared
     the happy things
     will get taken away
And if a life of fear
     is all you know
     it's under your skin
     and in your bones
Then you look away
     for a kiss, for love,
     for momentary glory
And the fear melts away
     or is forgotten
When it rushes back
     or creeps in again,
How much life have
     you lost, or gained?
