3 Day Lyrical Challenge: Day 2

Welcome back to Day 2 of my 3 Day Lyrical Challenge!

I was tagged in this challenge by three of my all-time favorite bloggers: Thrice Read, Discerning Couch Potato, and Whit Reads Lit. Thank you my lovely friends!

 


The Rules

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Share one of your favorite songs/lyrics one at a time for three days.
  • Nominate three other bloggers each day.

 

I decided to break this challenge up into three different types of songs: 

  1. Day One: Love song lyrics
  2. Day Two: Inspirational song lyrics
  3. Day Three: Breakup song lyrics

I’m not brave enough to say these are my favorite love song lyrics, but they are most certainly up there… definitely Top 3.

Sarah Bareilles, like Jason Mraz, has such a beautiful way with words and music. I just love how uplifting this song is!

I present to you…

Brave by Sarah Bareilles

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
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

Tag, You’re It!

I know I’m late to the game on this one, so feel free to skip if you’ve already done it or don’t feel like it.
