Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/15/17

This week, the lyric Simply Marquessa chose was: “Shut up and put your money where your mouth is…” Sometimes, picking a theme from a lyric is rather difficult and I’m not sure how well the theme for this week will work as far as song choices, but I have faith in you guys!

I’m not the kind of person that walks around telling people how great I am at any particular thing; in fact, I know I downplay a lot of my strengths. I’m not sure if that’s a lack of self-confidence or that I honestly have no idea where the line is when it comes to “selling” yourself. I do believe there is a line, but we all know people who are far too full of themselves and they walk around making sure everyone knows it. I find them rather annoying. Don’t you?

I think the choices are going to be interesting this week, to say the least, because our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is all about “bragging”.  

As always, you can go your own way and post a song that has nothing to do with the prompt.  We’re all here sharing our love of music and lyrics, and most of all, having a great time!

If you would like to suggest a theme, I am open to suggestions.   Please either pop it in the comments or send me an email at helenvahdati@yahoo.com.

Here are the “rules”:

  • Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not
  • Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due and it’s honestly just a simple Google search
  • Make sure you also credit the singer/band and provide a link to where you found the lyrics
  • Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song
  • Ping back to this post or my own Song Lyric Sunday post
  • Read at least one other person’s blog so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process

  9. So I decided when I woke up this morning to do a song that isn’t necessarily about bragging, but more about being okay with who you are. Like Helen, I don’t always acknowledge my own strengths, in fact I downplay them. So I thought of “Brave,” by Sara Bareilles, because sometimes we all just need to be brave and show the world our strengths.
    Written by Jack Antonoff / Sara Bareilles

    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
    And 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, 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
    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
    Innocence, 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?
    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
    See you be brave
    I just wanna see you
    I just wanna see you
    I just wanna see you
    I just wanna see you
    I just wanna see you
    I just wanna see you
