Brave!

Friday, June 14th, 2013

This song is just GREAT! It makes me smile so big… I even well up with tears… yes! I wanna see you be brave!

“Brave”
(Sara Bareilles)

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

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
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
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

You can’t break me…

A song worth listening to…

Ingrid Michaelson – Spare Change

Spare Change

Aching, longing
Save all your hands for me
‘Cause I won’t share them
With anything, anyone, no

I grew from you
Branches from a dying tree
But I could save you
If only you looked for me

You can’t break me
I’m a piggy bank on the floor
Watch all my spare change
Roll out the door
Watch all my spare change
Roll across the floor
Watching me through
Your glass door…

Save your smile for
Everybody else you see
‘Cause I don’t want the
One that you make for me

You can’t break me
I’m a piggy bank on the floor
Watch all my spare change
Roll out the door
Watch all my spare change
Roll across the floor
Watching me through
Your glass door…
Your door…

The more that I’ve tried
The more that you’ve pried
Yourself away…

I have always loved Rosie…her voice, her music is a gift to me. I couldn’t find the lyrics anywhere for her song, “SONGS” and so I thought I would post them here for my own pleasure (and anyone else’s who stumbles upon them…)

Songs by Rosie Thomas

How
How do I
Get it right
With my life
With a stubborn heart
A puzzled mind
These useless worries
Worries of mine?

And how
How do I
Keep my head
My head up high
When the more I know
The less I feel

A song’s a song
But love is real
Love is real

And how
How do I
Carry on
Carry light
When the whole world
Is in my hands

A song’s a song
But love’s their debt
Love’s their debt

Love’s my chance

Rosie Thomas - In Between EP

Rosie Thomas – In Between EP – Tired
Rosie Thomas - In Between EP - Tired

What if I were to say I love you?
What if I believed it to be true?
Would it be my downfall?
Would it wither all my pride
to admit my world seems lonely without you?
What if I were to ignore all these voices
that seems to spread my body thin?
I know I am not a savior
I need to get that through my head
before my own walls come tumbling in

I’m so tired
And I’m so wired
The fraction seems to brutalize these veins
To just give in might be to win
But it takes an awful lot to find the way

What if I were to just stop breathing
And let those walls coming tumbling in?
What if I stop placing one foot before the other
And failure was my only friend?

I’m so tired
And I’m so wired
The fraction seems to brutalize these veins
To just give in might be to win
But it takes an awful lot to find the way

Gotta find the way
Oh, I’ll find the way

What if I were to just surrender
And failure was my only friend?
What if I were to speak without allowing words to filter through my teeth?
Or turn my skin to glass and let you in?

I’m so tired
And I’m so wired
The fraction seems to brutalize these veins
To just give in might be to win
But it takes an awful lot to find the way

Gotta find the way
So, I’ll find the way.
