chords:
D D Bb Bb C C Bb Bb C C D D
I am a man who walks alone, and when I'm walking a dark road
Bb Bb C C Bb Bb C C D D
At night or strolling through the park
Bb Bb C C F F C C D D
When the light begins to change, I sometimes feel a little strange
Bb Bb C C
A A little anxious when it's dark.

C C Bb Bb C C D D C C
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
Bb Bb F F C C D D
I have constant fear that something's always near
Bb Bb C C D D C C
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
Bb Bb F F C C D D
I have a phobia that someone's always there

D D Bb Bb C C Bb Bb C C D D
Have you run your fingers down the wall, and have you felt your neck skin crawl
Bb Bb C C Bb Bb C C D D
When you're searching for the light?
Bb Bb C C F F C C D D
Sometimes when you're scared to take a look, at the corner of the room
Bb Bb C C
You've sensed that something's watching you.

Fear of the dark,fear of the dark
I have constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark,fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there

D D Bb Bb C C Bb Bb C C D D
Have you ever been alone at night, thought you heard footsteps behind
Bb Bb C C Bb Bb C C D D
And turned around, and no-one's there?
Bb Bb C C F F C C D D
And as you quicken up your pace, you find it hard to look again
Bb Bb C C
Because you're sure there's someone there

Fear of the dark,fear of the dark
I have constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark,fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there

D D Bb Bb C C Bb Bb C C D D
Watching horror films the night before, debating witches and folklore
Bb Bb C C Bb Bb C C D D
The unknown troubles on your mind
Bb Bb C C F F C C D D
Maybe your mind is playing tricks, you sense, and suddenly eyes fix
Bb Bb C C
On dancing shadows from behind.

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there.

When I'm walking a dark road
I am a man who walks alone

About this song

"Fear of the Dark" is a song written by Steve Harris, bass player and main songwriter for Iron Maiden, as the title track to Iron Maiden's 1992 album Fear of the Dark. This is the only song from the Fear of the Dark album to still be played in concerts today, although "Afraid to Shoot Strangers" was often played live until 1998. The single "Fear of the Dark (live)" is the 26th single released by the band. This live version of the song (as well as the live version of "Bring Your Daughter...To the Slaughter") is taken from the live album A Real Live One.
