MC Lars - Never Afraid feat. Watsky

: MC Lars
CHORUS:
CHARLYNE: I was never afraid (x4)

VERSE 1:

LARS:
On a big blue couch in the corner of the kitchen,
we went on many missions and amazing expeditions
fying through the pages on that Magic School Bus,
Shel Silverstein rode shortgun, but it was up to us
to peel apart the layers and search for the dragons
the cats wearing hats, Curious George and Peter Rabbit
the newest freshest books? Mom always brought them home
then in high school it was Steinbeck, Keats and Edgar Allan Poe

WATSKY: Dont let the memories fade, weve got to make them last
I was still a baby when Grandma Katy passed
and passed on her hardcover novels,
with the Sutherlin nameplates, our family gospel
cause Im not sure if the lord is above,
but I know that your mother is alive in the stories you love
that you read to us when we were little, until we were grown
and Im gonna pass them on when Ive got some kids of my own

(Kids of my own)

CHORUS:
CHARLYNE: I was never afraid
LARS: (of the monsters in the closet, it would be alright)
CHARLYNE: I was never afraid
LARS: (reading Goosebumps up in Tahoe on those summer nights)

CHARLYNE: I was never afraid
WATSKY: (of a moaning ghost, or of a pile bones)
CHARLYNE: I was never afraid WATSKY: (even when the floorboards groaned)
LARS:
Did Stuart Little give up? (No!) He always persevered
you came on stage at Warped Tour, remember how they cheered? and unlike Jackie Paper Ill be back to Honalee
to play you my new demos, cause youre so honest with me
at home you wont put up with that rapper ego crap,
cause to you Im still Andrew, and Ill always treasure that
Id choose my own adventure, its taken me so far
ghostriding giant peaches, catching seagulls with these bars

WATSKY:
Keep all your nickles and dimes, feed me your riddles and rhymes,
read me your Wrinkle in Time, build me a bridge out to Terabithia, meet me at nine
on the mysterious island, right at the scene of the crime
come with Captain Nemo, but Im emo, dont leave me behind
staring at the sun out on the cape until were legally blind
freeze any Mutiny on the Bounty, just cary me there,
out by Where the Red Fern Grows and just bury me there

(Bury me there)

CHORUS:
CHARLYNE: I was never afraid
LARS: (of the Twits or the Grinch or even Captain Hook)
CHARLYNE: I was never afraid
LARS: (of Boggis, Bunce or Bean, no I was never shook)
CHARLYNE: I was never afraid
WATSKY: (of the Grendel or of Ichabod Crane)
CHARLYNE: I was never afraid WATSKY: (even when the Tripods came)

CHARLYNE: Now suddenly,
for the first time,
Im ready to be loved

VERSE 3:

LARS:
And If I ever have kids, Ill read them Stega Nona
Lyle Lyle Crocodile, Matilda and Ramona

WATSKY:
Ill never give em the back of my hand,
give em the Giver, the River, Hatchet and Raggedy Ann

LARS:
And even as a rap fiend, mama
you always kept my hats clean, mama

WATSKY:
Even though we have seen drama,
you always had the vaccine, mama

CHORUS:
CHARLYNE: I was never afraid
LARS: (of gettin lost in Narnia because we had a map)
CHARLYNE: I was never afraid
LARS: (in those Oakland Hills sitting on my mamas lap)

CHARLYNE: I was never afraid
WATSKY: (in Jumanji, or of Anansi)
CHARLYNE: I was never afraid WATSKY: (theres no Ork or Morlock that haunts me)

CHARLYNE: I was never afraid (x4)
