Hush, My Love

Red Rose

No need for words tonight,

Sweetheart,

actions speak louder

Lead with your kisses and

let me be your flower

“Let the words fall out”

Sara Bareilles – Brave

I’ve been singing this song around the house
and absolutely love it…
the music, the lyrics, the message,
and, of course, Sara’s awesome voice.

Instead of writing a poem, using this song as inspiration,
I chose to post the lyrics, as they are truly powerful
and speak for themselves.

(I also deleted some of the repetitious background verses.)

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

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

Not only are the lyrics empowering,
but the music has me dancing!
I hope you enjoyed as much as I did.
Are you ready to be “brave?”  🙂
