Song Info :  "This song is about angst and fear in hearing the news of the atrocities that happen around us. We live a time where we have instant access to global happenings and the focus tends to be on the horrors of the day. Constant bombardment of these things can desensitize us so we don't feel.

Fear can make us shut down and run or hide or fight back whereas love expands us and comforts us and keeps the vision of peace and hope alive. I think everyone in the world needs love and not fear." - Norine Braun

Note :  Norine was our Artist Spotlight for Aug. 2003.

Verse 1 I look at everything in life
That brings me here
And I wonder what I'll become
I walk the streets at night
Come home to an empty place
My little space
I watch the news
And all the ugly things
I cry out and I beg
For something to find me here
Something to erase my fear
Chorus I need something
Something to find me here
I need love and not fear
I need something
Something to find me here
I need love and not fear
Verse 2 Desensitized
I realized
I could not feel
What was real
What was wrong
A voyeur in someone's pain and to remain
Unchanged
Seems so unreal
Chorus I need something
Something to find me here
I need love and not fear
I need something
Something to find me here
I need love and not fear

Round round I go
Where I stop
I don't know
Round round I go
Verse 3 All the horrors
All the injustice
I can't breathe
Between the lines
Of power, greed, hateful men
I want something more than me
More than this tragic history
To be forgotten and gone
Chorus I need something
Something to find me here
I need love and not fear
I need something
Something to find me here
I need love and not fear

I need something
Something to find me here
I need love and not fear
I need something
Something to find me here
I need love and not fear
