​Dangerous Times

This song is by Harry Belafonte and appears on the album An Evening With Harry Belafonte And Friends (1997).

Afraid to hold on
Afraid to let go
Afraid to find out
But afraid not to know
Afraid of what's broken
But still doesn't show
These are dangerous times to love

Afraid of the sky
Afraid of the light
Afraid of the wind
That will carry the night
Afraid of bad news from the satellite
These are dangerous times to love

We do not stand up together
We can't find no solid ground
All of our songs are forever
Not having empty sound

Afraid to hope
Afraid to bleed
Afraid of too much
But afraid of the need
Afraid of the poisons we might seed
These are dangerous times to love

Afraid to be foolish
Afraid to be old
Afraid of the stories
That are recklessly told
Afraid we must sell what's already been sold
These are dangerous times to love
These are dangerous times to love
