From the Album
• "Scared to Live" is a song by Canadian singer The Weeknd from his fourth studio album After Hours.
• It first debuted on March 8, 2020, during a SNL performance with Tesfaye and Oneohtrix Point Never.
• The Weeknd wrote and produced the song with its producers Max Martin and Oscar Holter, with Belly, Oneohtrix Point Never, Elton John, and Bernard Taupin receiving additional writing credits as well, with latter two being credited due to the track's interpolation of "Your Song" by Elton John.
• The lyrics of the song reference the on-and-off relationship Tesfaye has with model Bella Hadid. In the track, The Weeknd sings to his partner that they shouldn't be afraid to move on from the past and find love again, with him also mentioning that he still yearns for the connection that they once had.
