Dear Doubt, Michael Schulte

Anxiety can make you feel like the walls are closing in and all you want to do is run away so I can relate to the lyrics. The melody of the song reminds me of the Irish folk music I grew up with because of my step-father (even though Schulte is German).


Dear doubt, you wore out a path to my door
And it’s needless to say that there’s no way that I want you here
Dear doubt, please just go
You’ve been chasing me too long, so please just go

Oh my God, the walls are closing in
The pressure’s on, the floor is caving in
So better just leave and run
Through the fire, I will just run
Over fences I will jump
Cut the wires to the wild
Oh, I will run

Dear boy, let’s go back in time while we can
Oh we could sit in the sun and then put a Sally Oldfield record on
Dear boy, let me see the world through your eyes
With no fear of falling down, we’d just get up off the ground and then run

I know I’d better run
No more hesitation
I just gotta run
