I’ve recently really enjoyed several Sara Bareilles songs. They all seem pretty heartfelt, non-stereotypical, masterfully written (particularly “Gravity”), and with a slightly different edge. Everyone has their unique trials in life, and its easy to get sucked in to them. “Brave” can be a subtle reminder at a needed time, not to give in to fear.
This is a great, encouraging, peppy, tune which will make you want to dance, sing, run faster, be happy, and be BRAVE!
I think the first verse in particular is a true message that just can’t be restated in any other way but…
“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.”
