  1. Bravery

This from a downbeat frame of mind – discovering so many behaviours are influenced by fear – being scared of outcomes can be paralyzing – there is also a hopeful call to have a different relationship with fear and hence a different relationship with courage – what does it mean to be brave and what behaviours and thoughts might come from connecting with one's courage

Lyrics

Bravery

Words and Music by Glenn Matthes

Everytime - been looking for some joy outside
Thinking you will understand - and be free from the pain
So you avoid the sun - escaping from whatever comes
trying to lighten your load - and float away

But tomorrow you and I will shine together - and finally face our demons
and look them straight in the eyes

Let my bravery come out of the dark - and take me to see
What needs to be done
Let my bravery come lift me up - make me enough
help me rise above

You are in there - you are shaded from the light out here
You are blinded by the fear everywhere - keeping you underground
Well I'm closed too - hiding the storm inside - forgetting the spirit I am - losing sight of the stars

But tomorrow you and I will shine together - and finally face our demons
and look them straight in the eyes

Let my bravery come out of the dark - and take me to see
What needs to be done
Let my bravery come lift me up - make me enough
help me rise above

My eyes are open - and now I see you here
Oh please just stay here

So let us face the sun - take on whatever comes
then lighten our load - and float away

Let my bravery come out of the dark - and take me to see
What needs to be done
Let my bravery come lift me up - make me enough
help me rise above
Oh my bravery - I need you and I need you now.
