Day One of writing one song per day

Happy New Years! Thank you once again for being here. This one is a cowrite with Huntsville Alabama’s Ingrid Marie. Thank you Ingrid!

BRAVE

I walked in to your room

I couldn’t find the words

Do I have to spell it out

Sit down this one’s gonna hurt

I thought you might have known

Many times I had tried

To lay it all out

Should have come as no surprise

You don’t have to be brave

You don’t have to let it go

You don’t even have to try

You are never alone

You don’t have to be brave

I guess I should have known

Should have read the signs

Should have hid your keys

Should have read your mind

You gotta make your move

It’s gonna be ok

This could be your shot, kid

This could be your big break

You don’t have to be brave

You don’t have to let it go

You don’t even have to try

You were never alone

You don’t have to be brave

Or pretend that you’re strong

Let’s just both fall apart

Right here where we belong

You were already packed

I was turning over stones

Something shifted in the earth

When I picked up the phone

We’ve been stumbling in the dark

For half of our lives

Something bigger than us both

Pulled me back inside

You don’t have to be brave
