lyrics

When you feel that the world is destined to do you harm
And reactions you see are ones of fear and alarm
Remember your voice. Use words of careful choice
There’s not a thing that you can do, if you leave things alone
You can start by forgetting the things you think you know
Reject any doctrine that holds you afraid or alone
There will be times when you can’t laugh
But as long as you are intact
Don’t tell yourself there’s nothing you can do

Go On Be Brave
Run Fast Don’t Wait
Make Love Make Hope
Don’t let your dreams erode

A notion that exists in many I have found
Is not everyone can change the cards they’ve been dealt
While that is true to an extent
The thing that’s truer yet
Is you can never catch a wind unbound.
And there may come a day when you’ll have to let your loved one go
Be true to yourself don’t forget you are not alone
I know that you are bound to fear, yourself your thoughts for years
So I want to show you what makes this river flow

Go On Be Brave
Run Fast Don’t Wait
Make Songs Make Amends
Let your dreams be your best Friends

When you feel that the world will never hear your plea
And reactions you see are shock and misery
Remember your voice
Use words of careful choice
And I believe that dreams are all you need to be free
I believe that dreams are all you need to be free
I believe that dreams are all you need to be free

Go On Be Brave
Run Fast Don’t Wait
Why Not, this life is yours
And you will be gone tomorrow
