BRAVE.

There’s so much to say tonight.

The problem is, it’s all flying around in my touchscreen head in 2,408 different tabs.

So, I think for tonight, Sara Bareilles is going to say it all for me:

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 and 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 

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
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

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

And since 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

Lyrics by Sara Bareilles & Jack Antonoff
