I’m So Afraid of Losing
Joseph E. Reed
April 7, 2015

I've already been defeated
I'm just here collecting (to collect) my shame
I don't even feel mistreated
I accept I'm the best one to blame

I've heard of making haste slowly
But this is more like giving in
Inheritance for the weak and the lowly
The wages for all of my sins

I'm so afraid of losing
That I don't even start to begin

Yeah, I've had the time to correct this
And I've had the energy too
But I spent all my time finding brandy
And my energy writing these blues

No I'm not in line for a hand out
I played my hand out long ago
I guess I'm just looking for mercy
And direction on which way to go

I'm so afraid of losing
That I don't even start to begin

INSTRUMENTAL

I'm under the water
And can't save myself
Yeah, I am barely breathing
Trying to ask for some help

But if I’m not gonna make it
Maybe this is my last cry
At least I can say that
I did it before I died

I'm so afraid of losing
That I don't even start to begin
