Brave {Musical Mondays}

What is Musical Mondays?
Musical Mondays is a weekly linky party where we share a song we’re into for the week, and talk about why we like it-or why it effects us.  I’m also going to do monthly giveaways now with lots of bonus points for those who participate.  This month’s giveaway is for a $10 Amazon Gift Card (but they only get better from here!)
This week’s song:
Brave
by Sara Bareilles
You can be amazin’, you can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast or be the backlash or somebody’s lack of love
Or you can start speaking up

Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do when they settle ‘neath your skin
Kept on the inside, 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 wanna 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
Fallin’ for the fear and done some disappearin’
Bow down to the mighty
But don’t run, just 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 wanna say and let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
Ever since your history of silence wont 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 wanna 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

How did I not know there was a new Sara Bareilles song out?  Seriously-and it’s such a good one!  You know what?  This week I challenge you all to be brave!  Go out and do something you’ve been wanting to do, or say something you’ve been meaning to say-life’s too short to hold it all in!  I’ll do it if you do it, are you in?

What are you listening to this week?

    What beautiful and honest lyrics.

    This week, I'm listening to Thirty Seconds to Mars' new one. It actually doesn't come out till tomorrow, but I've previewed all the songs, and LOVE the first two I've heard. Not surprisingly, I'll probably love the entire album once I get my greedy little hands on it!

    I LOVE this song. My favorite at the moment, though, is I Love It. I'm way into angry girl songs right now. Maybe I should talk to my therapist about that…
