My, my, cold-hearted child, tell me how you feel

Just a blade in the grass, a spoke unto the wheel

Oh, my, my, cold-hearted child, tell me where it's all gone

All the luster of your bones, those arms that held you strong


Oh, I've been worryin' that my time is a little unclear

I've been worryin' that I'm losing the ones I hold dear

I've been worryin' that we all live our lives in the confines of fear


Oh, my, my, cold-hearted child, tell me how you feel

Just a grain in the morning air, dark shadow on the hill

Oh, my, my, cold-hearted child, tell me where it all falls

All this apathy you feel will make a fool of us all


Oh, I've been worryin' that my time is a little unclear

I've been worryin' that I'm losing the ones I hold dear

I've been worryin' that we all live our lives in the confines of fear


Oh, I will become what I deserve

Oh, I will become what I deserve

Oh, I will become what I deserve

Oh, I will become what I deserve


I've been worryin', I've been worryin',

I will become what I deserve

I've been worryin',

My time is a little unclear

I will become what I deserve


I've been worrying, I've been worryin'

That my time is a little unclear

I've been worryin', I've been worryin'

That I'm losing the ones I hold dear

I've been worryin', I've been worryin'

That we all live our lives in the confines of fear.


The meaning of the songs I use is quite different to the artist's original intent. What I'm doing is giving the song a new meaning through my book so if you Google the meaning of 'The Fear' by Ben Howard, the results you get will not be the same as what my fanfiction will imply, but it is also up to your interpretation.

All of the song credit will of course go to the artist's however for the sake of my fanfiction, in the world of the walking dead, Kat was the one who wrote them and they are all sung by her and I'll see if I can find female artist's doing a cover of Ben Howard's songs and any other artists I use, but if I can't you'll just have to use your imagination.
