Fear of the Dark

Iron Maiden

Fear of the Dark Lyrics

I am a man who walks alone
And when I'm walking a dark road
At night or strolling through the park

When the light begins to change
I sometimes feel a little strange
A little anxious when it's dark


[Chorus]
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


Have you run your fingers down the wall
And have you felt your neck skin crawl
When you're searching for the light?
Sometimes when you're scared to take a look
At the corner of the room
You've sensed that something's watching you


[Chorus]
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


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


[Chorus]
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


Fear of the dark
Fear of the dark
Fear of the dark
Fear of the dark
Fear of the dark
Fear of the dark
Fear of the dark
Fear of the dark


Watching horror films the night before
Debating witches and folklore
The unknown troubles on your mind
Maybe your mind is playing tricks
You sense, and suddenly eyes fix
On dancing shadows from behind

[Chorus]
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
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


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

About “Fear of the Dark”

The title track from Iron Maiden’s last album with lead singer Bruce Dickinson before his seven-year departure from the band, “Fear of the Dark” can be straightforwardly interpreted as a song about nyctophobia, and by extension whatever hides in darkness. The dark can also be more broadly interpreted as anything unknown or unfamiliar to someone that inspires in them fear and anxiety.

Steve, who wrote it, is really afraid of the dark. It’s the story of a man who walks in a park at night and, as it’s getting darker, he sees all sorts of worrying things. He becomes totally paranoid ‘cause his imagination is working overtime. It’s a great track.

-Bruce Dickinson

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    It’s about being scared but not really knowing what of. They say that everybody has a secret fear of something, they just don’t always know what it is – until it’s too late.“ – Steve Harris
