Sara Bareilles – Brave 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
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

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

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.

    To me, this song epitomizes the process of "coming out" and embracing yourself as an individual, and not just for individuals who happen to identify as LGBTQ etc. but also for others (as well) who struggle with their individuality and worth as human beings, people who have felt like they have no voice or say in their own lives or how others perceive them. If anything, the lyrics in this song are to encourage the listener to take control of themselves, to take advantage of their individuality and whatever else makes them unique, in essence, the message is to be yourself and proud of whoever you are as a person! Instead of being ashamed of certain characteristics about you that may make you different, unpopular or even hated, love those things about yourself since it's the first step to the process of loving who you are to begin with! For many, this does involve having to "come out" of the proverbial closet as someone who is gay, bi, or trans*, someone with autism, someone who's a survivor of years of abuse, and other situations in which an individual requires a certain degree of bravery (thus the name of the song) to admit and/or take ownership of having gone through. Being able to live your life without feeling constantly bothered by shame and fear is, after all, a key part in being happy as a human being to begin with.
