Not Afraid Anymore is a song by Halsey. The song, released on January 13, 2017, is featured on the official soundtrack of the movie Fifty Shades Darker.

Background

The song features soaring electropop synths accompanied by dark and confident lyrics. Speaking with Zane Lowe of Beats 1 Radio about the track, she said:

"The mentality of the song is kinda like, 'I’m excited to pursue this new sexual frontier that I have been told is taboo or I have been taught is impure.' I’m excited to be empowered in this moment and to take control of this and try something because I’m not afraid of this anymore and it’s liberating to be a part of it."[1]

Lyrics

I am not afraid anymore
Standing in the eye of the storm
Ready to face this, dying to taste this, sick sweet warmth
I am not afraid anymore
I want what you got in store
I'm ready to feed now, get in your seat now

And touch me like you never
And push me like you never
And touch me like you never
'Cause I am not afraid, I am not afraid anymore
No no no

No no no
No no no
No no no
No no no

I am not ashamed anymore
I want something so impure
You better impress now, watching my dress now fall to the floor
Crawling underneath my skin, sweet talk, better hit the sin
Begging you to take me
Devil underneath your grin, sweet thing, bet you play to win, heaven gonna hate me

And touch me like you never
And push me like you never
And touch me like you never
'Cause I am not afraid, I am not afraid anymore
No no no

Crawling underneath my skin, sweet talk, better hit the sin
Begging you to take me
Devil underneath your grin, sweet thing, bet you play to win, heaven gonna hate me

And touch me like you never
And push me like you never
And touch me like you never
'Cause I am not afraid, I am not afraid anymore
No no no
