Brave

Friday, May 29, 2015

Recently I had an interesting talk with my best friend, Destiathree Supardi, well, actually every talk I have with her is interesting, but this one we talked about love life; particularly about how hard we come out honestly toward the ones we deeply love. We both have the same problem (perhaps that’s what makes us best friend; similarities); confess the way we really feel, especially when that feeling is serious and real. The funny thing is, we found ourselves motivating each other to be brave to come out with the truth toward the ones we love. At a point like this I truly understand that’s what friends are for; to reflect and to remind us, how we used to be and how we should be. From the talk I realize, that I have to be brave, more than before, to speak up. We only live once and we never know what the future brings. So while we still have the time, we should make the chance to be brave, more than before, to let it come out freely and honestly.

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.” –Sara Bareilles, Brave

“Brave” is our today’s song for Free Spirit. The pop song was performed by American singer-songwriter, Sara Bareilles. It was released on April 23rd 2013 as the lead single taken from her fourth studio album, “The Blessed Unrest”. The song was written by Bareilles herself along with Jack Antonoff from the band, Fun.
Speak it up! That sentence probably is the best to resume what the lyrics of “Brave” talk about. We can’t never deny the power of words. Well, people may say that words are just words. But hey, words might be just words, but it has a power that even the most powerful person in the world cannot resist. Words can lift you up high or bring you down low. Words can give extreme happiness or sadness. But, as long as they’re being spoken up. “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 when 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.”
“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, 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.” The art of coming out with the truth is never easy, it needs bravery; this I understand so well. I’ve been there, done that. But at some point in life, silence won’t bring any good. Especially when it comes to love. “And since 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?” I believe that feelings need to be spoken, therefore it would feel real. “Say what you wanna say and let the words fall out. Honestly, I wanna see you be brave.”
The accompanying music video for “Brave” was directed by actress Rashida Jones and premiered on May 14th 2013. The song received positive reviews from music critics. Besides, it also gained popularity as it appeared on some commercial advertisements and remade by many other artists, with the exciting beat and encouraging lyrics.

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.” –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 when 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, 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

And since 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?”
