Sara Bareilles - Brave & Chinese New Year 31.1.22

Sara Beth Bareilles born December 7, 1979 is an American singer-songwriter, actress, author, and producer.  

We have listened to this song before but it fits so perfectly with our current message. Being courageous is when you are frightened of something but it doesn’t let it stop you. This week we are looking at standing up for injustice; when you see something wrong ‘Say what you wanna say and let the words fall out’. 



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
