about

Recorded during the autumn of 2012, What Are You Afraid Of? is a compilation of some of Kevin Marble's best songs from the last three years. The project was made possible by the many generous fans and friends who supported it when it was still just a dream with their time, finances, encouragement, and ideas. Thank You.

Track Name: Let It Take
The look in her eyes deems the laughter okay/It’s clear there’s gonna be another verse/Her lack of apprehension seems to set the mood/Her ability to love is mostly true/He takes a step back for fear he’s wrong/And certainty is questioned by the power of a song/He takes his time to pray, his time to think/He’s keeping his head where he thinks he can breathe/Hold on in Faith, give it time, let it take/All new cards, the same old tricks/These brand new smiles don’t seem to fix/The same old run around, the same old game/Here he is again doing the same/Hold on in Faith, give it time, let it take/Boy don’t you know, you’ve always been afraid?/And, well, here you are again, doing the same/Hold on in Faith, give it time, let it take/Boy don’t you know, you’ve always been afraid?/And, well, here you are again, doing the same/Here you are again, doing the same/You hold your heart so high/You’re so afraid to hold it by your side/Are you ever gonna learn, to let it take, let it take?/Let it take/Boy don’t you know, you’ve always been afraid?/And well here you are again, doing the same/Here you are again, doing the same/Here you are again, doing the same
Track Name: Come Again
Come again, come again, come again, despite me/Come again, come again, despite me/You know who I am and who I’ve been/You know who I am and where I’m coming from/Everything I have is in your hands/You know who I am/Come again, come again, come again, despite me/Come again, come again, despite me/You know who I am and who I’ve been/You know who I am and what I’m running from/Everything I have is in your hands/You know who I am/You know who I am/You know who I am/Everything I’ve done/Everything I have is in your hands/You know who I am/You know who I am/Come again, come again, come again despite me
Track Name: She Left Me On a Monday
Dear you left me on a Monday evening/I must admit, I didn’t know what to say/Coming clean, you were not all that mean/But all the same, I’m left alone/Now you think we’ll just stay friends/If you don’t, well you act the same/We continue on but we still don’t move/As it is, I still want you/Dear you left me on a Monday evening/I must admit, I didn’t know what to say/Coming clean, you were not all that mean/But all the same, I’m left alone/We go on dates, we watch TV/We talk about the things we’ve seen/Don’t try to tell me that you haven’t been everything I wish I had/Dear you left me on a Monday evening/I must admit, I didn’t know what to say/Coming clean, you were not all that mean/But all the same, I’m left alone/But all the same, I’m left alone/Coming clean is not so easy/But easy never was your thing/I was holding on to what I thought I might have/You were letting go ‘cause you don’t think you need that; you don’t want that/I was holding on to what I thought I might have/You letting go ‘cause you think you’re better off without that, alright/I was holding on to what I thought I might have/You were letting go ‘cause you don’t want that, no/I was holding on to what I thought I might have/You were letting go and you’re probably right, just like you’re always right/Dear you left me on a Monday evening/I must admit, I didn’t know what to say/Coming clean, you were not all that mean/But all the same, I’m left alone/But all the same, I’m left alone/But all the same, I’m left alone

Track Name: Faltered
Son of the man I loved, I gave you a gift/Ask me for anything, wisdom it is/Spoils, success, and lovers, all within reach/You thought you could follow me and keep everything/I told you, “don’t marry those lovers with their idols they carry”/You faltered, betrayed me, my law you broke, my anger provoked/Out on a hill, just east of my holy home/You set up a high place for the gods of your wives/Anger and rage to fix this mistake will wait/You’re the son of the man I loved, for him I refrain/I told you, “don’t marry those lovers with their idols they carry”/You faltered, betrayed me, my heart you broke, my anger provoked/Falter on, I appeared to you twice but your lust made you blind/Broken hearts, broken lives and laws/Empty purpose, empty inside with lust in your eyes, empty inside with lust in your eyes/Empty, broken/Empty, broken, flesh I became and flesh I save/Empty, broken, flesh I became and flesh I save/Flesh I became and flesh I save

Track Name: Show Me Wonders
Show me wonders, show me wonders, show me wonders ‘til you come around/I’ll sit in wonder, I’ll sit in wonder, I’ll sit in wonder ‘til I hear the sound/Father, Father, tell me when you’re gonna be in town/I’ve got a broken heart and I don’t know where fixing can be found/I’ve got no water, I’ve got no bread, hate is creeping into my head/There’s a liar resting on my shoulder, Father I need you to knock him over/Jesus, Jesus, tell me that you plan on coming back/My spirit tries, this weather burns, and I can’t get it right/Will you tell me where I’m going, I’ve got scars showing where I’ve been/It seems that you are always knowing, I never could tell where or when/Show me wonders, show me wonders, show me wonders ‘til you come around/I’ll sit in wonder, I’ll sit in wonder, I’ll sit in wonder ‘til I hear the sound/Singing songs is not enough, but I still won’t give it up/The same is true of everything that everyone thinks they can trust/I will trust/I will trust in the one who gave his life for us/Show me wonders, show me wonders, show me wonders ‘til you come around/I’ll sit in wonder, I’ll sit in wonder, I’ll sit in wonder ‘til I hear the sound/Show me wonders, show me wonders, show me wonders ‘til you come around/I’ll sit in wonder, I’m praying for wonders, I’ll seek your wonders ‘til I hear the sound
Track Name: The Peace to Come
Figure out the stranger ways, I have seen all of this, over and over again/A broken word, children’s hurt, multiply the pain, over and over again/Hallelujah again/Golden man, shattered heart, fortune wide and anger deep, over and over again/Throw it down, hit the ground, every thought will make a sound, over and over again/Hallelujah again, hallelujah again/So why, why wait if these storms are what we call hope?/Give it up, let it go, over and over again, over and over, over and over again/Images upon a screen, lend an eye and make believe, over and over again/Give it up and turn away, a fool’s attempt in silence kept, over and over again/Hallelujah again, hallelujah again/So why, why wait if these storms are what we call hope?/And why deal with pain if hardships are certain as the rain?/Why, why wait if these storms are what we call hope?/Why deal with pain if hardships are certain as the rain/Give it up, let it go, the peace to come is better than you know/Give it up, let it go, the peace to come is better/The peace to come is better/The peace to come is better than you know/Give it up, let it go, the peace to come is better than you know
Track Name: Broken Hearted Foolish Men
Sister, I need a word with you/Lend an ear if you’ve got the time to spare/Broken hearted, foolish men are drunk on love and bitterness/Take your heart, hold it near/Stay the same if you want to ‘cause me pain/Place your hand on his knee again, you’re an empty hearted disease, an empty hearted disease/Broken hearted, foolish men are drunk on love and bitterness/Broken hearted, foolish men are drunk on love and bitterness/I’m drunk on love and bitterness/Raise your glass, take a sip/I’d rather not, harmony can’t exist with your words on my heart/But I don’t want this, I don’t want to want you anymore/Broken hearted, foolish men are drunk on love and bitterness/Broken hearted, foolish men are drunk on love and bitterness/I’m drunk on love and bitterness/Broken hearted, foolish men/It’s who you are, you don’t love but you love to be loved/Tell me I’m wrong, but the patterns are clear; it’s taken a hold of you/It’s who you are, you don’t love but you love to be loved/You don’t love but you love to be/You don’t love but you love to be loved/You don’t love but you love to be/Broken hearted, foolish man/Broken hearted, foolish man/I’m a Broken hearted, foolish man/I’m a broken hearted, foolish man/Broken hearted foolish men are drunk on love and bitterness/Broken hearted, foolish men are drunk on love and bitterness/I’m drunk on love and bitterness, I’m drunk on love and
Track Name: Lead Me On
Although I believe grace will win and love defeats/Somewhere deep in me a faulty stitch may break the seam/I am weak, I believe what I see, I believe as it seems to me/I see the fool that I am, I plead that you’ll understand/Lead me on, I’m left empty instead, it’s all in my head/Right up to the point where my words meant what they said and just what they said/I was waiting for you to hear, hear me out/What I’ve got to say won’t take too long/Hope will last when faith is near/Faith will come and clout out fear/All these fears are not as they seem/I’ll trust in him whose faithfulness I’ve seen/Lead me on, I’m left empty instead, it’s all in my head/Right up to the point where my words meant what they said and just what they said/I was waiting for you to hear, hear me out, what I’ve got to say/I was waiting for you to hear, hear me out, hear me out/Time won’t tell us what to do/And the choices we have are left to you/I’ve found the words to say how I feel/Now it’s time for you to choose, it’s time for you to choose/All these fears are not as they seem/I’ll trust in him whose faithfulness I’ve seen
Track Name: These Stars
Long ago, years before I can remember/I was abducted by existence itself/I was chosen, I had no say in the matter/Holding on is so much harder when you believe that you were made to fuel the fire/The fire of self burns what it will and takes with it your own damned soul/Tell me, have you heard the words?/Have you seen the light? Have you felt the shame?/’Cause redemption comes to the ugliest place/Where the heart is raw and the taste is pain/Nothing I could say to you would make you believe that this is where beauty lies/Taking time will make you wonder/Moving forward will keep your head from going under/As if your best was ever gonna be enough/Still the idea sits somewhere deep inside of each of us/Tell me, have you heard the words?/Have you seen the light? Have you felt the shame?/’Cause redemption comes to the ugliest place/Where the heart is raw and the taste is pain/Nothing I could say to you would make you believe that this is where beauty lies/Hide it where you can and as you do you’ll begin to understand your place; where you belong/Just enough to know that this was wrong/Stricken against the side of it/There was something in what he said that brought you in/That brought you in/Oh these stars are not quite what they seem/Just like your dreams are so far from what you’d like them to be/But what do I know anyway? I’ve never felt it like this/Just remember, these stars are so much more than what you thought could exist/Hide it where you can and as you do you’ll begin to understand your place; where you belong/Just enough to know that this was wrong/Stricken against the side of it/There was something in what he said that brought me in/That brought me in/Here you are, it’s time to go/As we wait, you don’t want me to know/But I already do, I see it in you/Here you are, it’s time to go/As we wait, you don’t want me to know/But I already do, I see it in you/I already do, I see it in you, I already do, I see it in you
Track Name: In His Mind He Breaks Down the Walls
Well he’s all alone with his soul/The night is here again, he’ll lose control/And he knows it, as he sits there calmly, in his mind he breaks down the walls/It’s a figure of speech, I never meant anything when I said, “I love you man, I hope you’re feeling alright, okay. Feeling better? Alright, okay.”/Well I never said a word I meant to keep, but for you to the Lord I pray I change/It’s Two A.M. his life is on the line, in his mind he breaks down the walls/And he thinks he might have just enough time before the pain makes him too afraid/Quietly he waits through the dark of the night as a tear runs down his face/He begins to pray/Truth be told we never stop, we say, “I’ll pray for you, you’re in my thoughts.”/Oh but we’re so quick to close the door, saying, “I’m holding out hope for the Lord.”/And I can’t watch lest I start to know the agony you feel most every day/So I begin to pray to the Lord who forgives his own, I begin to pray, Lord forgive me now/O Lord, forgive me now/If you can, forgive me somehow, O Lord, forgive me now/It’s a figure of speech, I never meant anything when I said, “I love you man, I hope you’re feeling alright, okay. Feeling better? Alright, okay.”/Well hey I never said a word I meant to keep, but for you to the Lord I pray I change/And sitting here my heart begins to sink as I think about the extent to which you’re brave/Cowardice has been my middle name, but for you to the Lord I pray I change/Oh for you to the Lord I pray I change
Track Name: Tumblin' Down
Well, tell me why you up and left/Why you had to leave me/What you found instead/Seems that I was not good enough/Well, I never was, dear/But thought that we had love/Time’s passed and still I don’t know why/I see you in my dreams now/I see you when I cry, oh I cry/Love comes, love grows, love dies and it goes/You thought that love was all you need/Well you didn’t know/Well, tell me why you up and left/Why you had to leave me/What you found instead/Seems that I was not good enough/Well, I never was, dear/But thought that we had love/Sometimes these floors fall through/And when these walls break down/This roof will come tumblin’ down/Sometimes these floors fall through/Sometimes these walls break down/And when this roof caves in/This house will come tumblin’, tumblin’ down, tumblin’ down
Track Name: What Are You Afraid Of?
Quite frankly, I’m trying to see where this could go/Nothing you’ve said has let me into that place I had hoped to know/All of these times, with all their good vibes, these mutual signs/And still you resign to fear/What are you afraid of?/Is it boys? Is it love? Is it the time it takes to trust?/Is it me? Is it us? Is it the thought I may give up?/What are you afraid of?/I’m going home, you’re flying out, every moment we had, lost in doubt/You don’t know where you stand, you’re so afraid of yourself/Let it fall down, I’ll pray for you, but tell me, dear/Is it boys? Is it love? Is it the time it takes to trust?/Is it me? Is it us? Is it the thought I may give up?/Is it time? Is it pain? Is it the chance that you might stay?/Is it home? Is it here? Is it anyone who gets too near?/What are you afraid of? What are you afraid of?/What the hell are you afraid of? What are you afraid of?/Well, I want to hear you out/Don’t want to pressure you, that’s not what it’s about/Promise me you won’t drop me now/You’re afraid but we can still work it out/What are you afraid of?
