Brave
Sara Bareilles Lyrics


You can be amazing
You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody's lack of love
Or you can start speaking up
Nothing's gonna hurt you the way that words do
When they settle 'neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would happen if you

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

Everybody's been there, everybody's been stared down
By the enemy
Fallen for the fear and done some disappearing
Bow down to the mighty
But don't run, stop holding your tongue
Maybe there's a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

Innocence, your history of silence
Won't do you any good
Did you think it would?
Let your words be anything but empty
Why don't you tell them the truth?

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
See you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you

I'm really glad she got nominated for a Grammy. She is extremely underrated and deserves so much more exposure.

@Tai Dewitte *than #grammarnazi 😎 frankly, I like her "who made you the King Of Anything" song, especialy her live performance in which sh is playing the piano. She is very thin and gorgeous 😍, she's is wearing fish net stockings on her legs, and has really nice big muscular thighs while sitting, the hair has this light blinde tinge, she looked just lovely like an angel ❤️ the song is awesome too, like a cute, gorgeous lady (girl) sitting in a coffee shop, shooshing away guys all approaching her with confidence, like they own her, and she is their property, talking whatever shit that they talk. (on a side note, I do believe the industry changes you like anything else, even if you are committed tobthe music and actively choose to stay away from the or have lust for the glamour and fame quotient. plus it is tiring, brutal hardwork, these people their heart out to the audiences, but someone else comes along doing the same, with different energy maybe younger energy, the audience fickle hearts divert to them, what are you supposed to do?? it's nature abd human nature ❤️ those (amongst the audience) who truly love, enjoy music recognise this and enjoy good music and not necessarily chase tge hype and trends, I do try out the trends, and have liked many too but then if you don't get on that train of hype fully also, you are labelled "different". one such train I didn't get on was the huge, Game Of Thrones one. I never even watched a trailer of it, (I personally think it was the nude scenes on hbo which I did download and see ;) but other than that, I don't know the story or what the hype was abt?? If anyone, cares to explain it, I will appreciate it 👍

There’s a difference between longing to be an artist and longing to be famous… true artists understand this and don’t mind the later because it’s empty. They know how the industry works and why it’s unlikely they’ll get “more exposure” while producing authentic material that speaks their heart. Its a fear based world ruled by money. If you dare to be brave and disrupt the narrative the high and mighty wish to perpetuate you don’t expect them support your work… she deserves so much more then fame.. She deserves for ppl to be impacted by her work and wake up . She deserves a better world. We all do, so let’s make one 🙏🌈☀️🌷
