“I’m So Afraid” is Track 11 on Fleetwood Mac’s 10th studio album, the self-titled Fleetwood Mac (1975). It appears as the b-side of the US single for “Over My Head.”

Written by Lindsey Buckingham, “I’m So Afraid” was one of many of the songs intended for a proposed second Buckingham Nicks album. Other songs in this group included “Monday Morning,” “Rhiannon,” and “Landslide” — all of which were used for Fleetwood Mac.

An early instrumental take of “I’m So Afraid” appears on the 2018 reissue of Fleetwood Mac.

Lyrics

I been alone
All the years
So many ways to count the tears
I never change
I never will
I’m so afraid the way I feel

Days when the rain and the sun are gone
Black as night
Agony’s torn at my heart too long
So afraid
Slip and I fall and I die

I been alone
Always down
No one cared to stay around
I never change
I never will
I’m so afraid the way I feel

Days when the rain and the sun are gone
Black as night
Agony’s torn at my heart too long
So afraid
Slip and I fall and I die

How I feel
Days when the rain and the sun are gone
Black as night
Agony’s torn at my heart too long
So afraid
Slip and I fall and I die
