Maxine Makeba – No Fear

74

I knew we were in trouble when I gave residence to fear in my life.

Fear, don’t you dare come near me

In my passion to give my greatness a chance

Fear, don’t you dare come near me

All my life you’ve attacked, criticised and brutalized me

And left me down here in the blue, you

Fear, don’t you dare come near me

You’ve won so many battles in my life; you brute

Tell the truth, from a youth, you’ve won countless battles in my life

Your partners in crime are illusions and lies, haste and debase

Tell the truth you brute, why won’t you give your greatness a chance?

In confidence you’ve won before you’ve started

In fear you are twice defeated

give your greatness a chance

With a smile you hypnotize, on the other side it’s ugly, you sly

So many opportunities you’ve destroyed in my life

Your partners in crime are mistrust and envy, sloth, deceit, hate, despair and desolate

You brute,

tell the truth, you’re nothing more than a figment and a dirty habit

Give your greatness a chance
