Kid Fears
Indigo Girls Lyrics


Pain from pearls, hey little girl
How much have you grown?
Pain from pearls, hey little girl
Flowers for the ones you've known

Are you on fire
From the years?
What would you give for your
Kid fears?
Secret staircase (secret staircase), running high (running high)
You had a hiding place
Secret staircase (secret staircase), running low (running low)
They all know, now you're inside

Are you on fire
From the years?
What would you give for your
Kid fears?
Kid fears

Skipping stones, we know the price now
Any sin will do
How much further, if you can spin
How much further, if you are smooth

Are you on fire (are you on fire)
From the years? (from the years)
What would you give for your
Kid fears?

Replace the rent with the stars above
Replace the need with love

Replace the anger with the tide
Replace the ones, the ones, the ones, that you love

The ones that you love
Are you on fire
From the years?
What would you give for your
Kid fears?

Are you on fire
From the years
What would you give for your
Kid fears
What would you give for your
Kid fears
What would you give for your
Kid fears
You can't feel
The kids

Mr Hello There

when i was a young kid, i would listen to this late at night, alone, on the swingset in my backyard.Sometimes the moon would be out, the trees were bare, and the music felt so beautiful, so sad and so strange all at once. I was too young to really understand what they were talking about; I listened to their voices and heard the pain in the song and tried to understand what it all meant.

Good for you,a true earthly being!

When I was in eighth grade in 1999, I was fortunate enough to go to a small girls' school where the teacher was a huge fan of Indigo Girls AND gave us all guitar lessons :) I know all the words to so many of their songs to this day and I love them. "Kid Fears" was one of the first songs I ever learned on guitar.

One of my favorite songs ever. Never fails to give me chills. Love the way Michael's voice works so well with theirs. Beautiful. I first heard this song when my then-boyfriend recorded a mix tape for me of songs he said reminded him of me, and this was on it. Been a fan of the Girls ever since, but no song more so than this. RIP to my ex, who passed away a few years back in a boating accident. Makes this song even more poignant.

I had completely forgotten about this song. So hauntingly beautiful and then it just blows me away when MS joins in. I need to add this entire album to my playlist again!

Jennifer Konstant

I get chills just THINKING about his intro into this song...

This song still holds up after 30 years. I remember seeing Indigo Girls open for REM in Syracuse. When Michael Stipe came out to guest vocal on this - amazing beyond words.

2:31 Michael Stipe comes in.

Hard to believe this album is 30 years old.
