Face Your Fears

by "Mimi," age 11, in Friends program

Face your fears if you get hurt
Face your fears if you don't like people
You have to face your fears
If you don't like the dark
The dark is the main event
Face your fears
Face your fears
This is going to be the main event

Don't be afraid of the dark
Don't cry, don't whine
Keep your head up
Be strong
Get it straight
Get it right

Because this is the main event 
Don't get hurt
Don't get caught
Be happy with what you've got

Face your fears
Don't get into trouble
Your mom buys your shoes
Your mom gets your hair done
You get good clothes every day
Your family is a good family
Be happy with what you've got
Face your fears
It's the main event
