“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?”  :)

  1. Lauren, great song choice! I heard it when Cat (our dear friend!) sent it to me. I love that you both thought of me and you both are sharing positive music. So great that you type out the lyrics for me to read. I’m going to listen to the song again now :) Have a wonderful night!

    • What a coincidence, Christy, that we both thought of you. Your positivity and smiling personality have an impact on us, I would say! I was going to write a poem, but I loved the lyrics so much, so I decided to share with everyone. Very powerful, don’t you think? Well, I hope you enjoyed them again! Many hugs!

  2. Do you know this song seems to be following me round!! :D I think you are the third one in my list of bloggers I’m following to share this in that last few weeks! And it really is a wonderful song, I love it too, and I’d be quite happy to see it several times more – thank you Lauren!! :D

    • How funny, Suzy, but it just goes to show you what a great song it is! I can’t stop listening to it or singing it! I think my family may be getting a little tired of hearing me by now! :) Glad you enjoyed it again! Have a great night and thanks for your comment! xx

  3. Hi Lauren, thanks for sharing this song; its lovely.

    Being brave is a daily effort sometimes not achieved! Although maybe letting “the words fall out” is being brave? :),
