Brave – Riley Pearce

 

Are you scared, because I am too

This fear in my head has been there for too long

We sleep now with the light on

But shadows make shapes in the light and I don’t know what they might be

 

Are you cold, because I am too

Cover your toes with a jacket and your bones with a blanket I will

She tells me that I’ll be alright

For a second it feels like I believe her but I forgot the way that things were

And I’m trying, I’m trying to be brave

 

Ooooh Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh

I’m trying, I’m trying to be brave

Ooooh Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh

 

It’s the body of water that splits us right down the middle

But I’ll be coming back for you

 

Are you lost, because I am too

Directions mean nothing in the dark when you don’t know where you stand

The maps gone, so are our footprints

To get home now will take something that I’m not sure that I can give

And I’m trying, I’m trying to be brave

 

Ooooh Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh

I’m trying, I’m trying to be brave

Ooooh Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh

It’s the body of water that splits us right down the middle

But I’ll be coming back for you

 

I’ll be coming back for you x 3
