I'm So Afraid Lyrics
All the years
So many ways to count the tears
I never change
I never will
Im so afraid the way I feel
Days when the rain and the sun are gone
Black as night
Agonys torn at my heart too long
Slip and I fall and I...

I'm so afraid meaning to me was about Lyndsey and Stevie's relationship.they were immersed with their tour drugs alcohol groupies the constant go go go that ultimately led to alienation breakups loneliness . That's what drugs do like Stevie said never date a rock star female or male.
The music to this song was written in the very early 70's when Lindsey was very sick with mono for almost a year. The lyrics were written a few years later, around 1974 if I remember correctly, so this wouldn't really be about his breakup with Stevie, since they didn't officially split until 1976 or 77 (depending on who you ask)

This is possibly the most depressing song Lindsey Buckingham ever wrote for Fleetwood Mac. The lyrics are about the pain and loneliness Lindsey was going through just before him and Stevie Nicks broke up during the making of the White Album. He talks about how he was 'always alone, and no one cared to stay around', the song even contains suicidal 'slip and I fall and I die', once more the lyrics 'Agonies torn at my heart to long' this could be interpreted as the agony Stevie was causing him at the time? This song definitely portrays the depression and agony Lindsey Buckingham was going through at this time, little did he know, the pain hadn't started yet.
