Afraid (David Bowie song)

"Afraid" is a song written by David Bowie for the album "Heathen" in 2002. It was originally intended for the unreleased album "Toy" in 2001.

Video footage of Mark Plati and Bowie recording the demo of the song is available on [http://www.davidbowie.com BowieNet] .

The song makes a reference to John Lennon's song "God" with the lyrics "I believe in Beatles." Could also simply be a reference to the Beatles themselves.
