I’ve been loving this happy song, and pretty much her entire CD, all summer. I want to write as bravely as these beautiful people dance. And as a writer, I pretty much NEED Sara Bareilles’s pants. (I may not be brave enough to wear them.)

How big is your 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, no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would happen if you
Say what you want to say
And let the words fall out honestly
I want to see you be brave
With what you want to say…
—Sara Bareilles
