Angels lift you off the ground
I've got shadows weighing me down
Still you believe, you believe in me
I wish I could feel that way

You can trust so easily
I can't give you all of me
Stay holding on, when you should be gone
I wish I was that brave

You go to fight for love like a soldier
I wanna run away
You're never scared to walk through the fire
I wish I had your faith
I turned away knowing my heart could break
I'm so afraid to fall and surrender
I'm not brave, I'm not brave

Keep my guard up constantly
Stop this pain from peircing me
Now I don't know how, how to put it down
I wish I was that brave

You go to fight for love like a soldier
I wanna run away
You're never scared to walk through the fire
I wish I had your faith
I turned away knowing my heart could break
I'm so afraid to fall and surrender
I'm not brave, I'm not brave

Still you believe, you believe in me
I wish I was that brave

You go to fight for love like a soldier
I wanna run away
You're never scared to walk through the fire
I wish I had your faith
I turned away knowing my heart could break
I'm so afraid to fall and surrender
I'm not brave, I'm not brave

I'm not brave, I'm not brave

    I think there are two versions of this song cause one of the versions say for the second verse "Keep my shield up constantly stop these arrows piercing me" then the other one said "Keep my guard up constantly stop this pain from piercing me"

    This song is just so addictive. I listen to it almost all the time every day.. LOVE IT. And Leona!! :) So glad she won third series of X-Factor. If she didn't i probably would've sued X-Factor.
