    Released


      About "Brave"

      A notably empowering song, Sara Bareilles' "Brave" encountered positive reviews and touching fan responses. Bareilles explained in an interview that she was inspired by the incredible courage of her friend coming out of the closet, with her repeating "I just want to see you be free." The American singer-songwriter shows off her dancing skills in the accompanying music video as she dances with others in public places. Many were quick to point out that Katy Perry's "Roar" sounds eerily similar to "Brave," a claim Bareilles saw some validity to but didn't care regardless due to her great relationship with Katy.

      Lyrics for Sara Bareilles - "Brave"

      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

      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

      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
      See you be brave

      I just wanna see you
      I just wanna see you
      I just wanna see you

      I just wanna see you
      I just wanna see you
      I just wanna see you
