Braver Than We Are

Sometimes it’s the night, and the way it seems to cry
And whisper terrifying secrets in your ear
Sometimes it’s the day, and the sun has got no mercy
Lighting up and burning everything that’s in its way

There are times I’ve gotta run
Times I’ve gotta hide
Things I’ve left undone
Things I cast aside
So many things to try
So many things denied
If I ever tell you the truth
I’m scared you would leave me
I need the proof that you would believe me

You think I fly like an angel without any tears
Higher and higher, above the world and all its fears

Everybody’s ready to fly
But the storms are never so very far
And you think my life is shining like a star
But the fears are never very far

And we always seem so much braver than we ever are
We always dream we’d be braver but we never are
Let’s run away
Let’s go so far…

Sometimes it’s the flesh and the way it seems to yearn
For all the magic of a single perfect touch
Sometimes it’s the soul and it’s waiting for salvation
You’ll know when you get it there can never be too much

There are times I’ve gotta run
Times I’ve gotta hide
Things I’ve left undone
Things I’ve cast aside
So many things to try
So many things denied
If I ever tell you the truth
Would you ever believe me?
Show me the proof, I’m so scared that you’d leave me

You think I fly like an angel without any cares
Higher and higher as if I’m breathing sacred air

Everybody’s ready to fly
But the storms are never so very far
And you think my life is shining like a star
But the fears are never very far
The nightmare’s all so very far

And we always seem so much braver than we ever are
We always dream we’d be braver but we never are

Let’s go so far
Oh yeah…
Yeah…
Oh…

(say a prayer)
(say a prayer)

Say a prayer for those who crawl
Say a prayer for those who run
Say a prayer so all and all
There’s a better life to come

Say a prayer for those alone
Say a prayer for those apart
All the golden boys and girls
The crusaders of the heart

Say a prayer for all the lost
Say a prayer for the unborn
Say a prayer for all the young
It takes a fire to keep them warm

Say a prayer for those obsessed
Say a prayer for those enslaved
Say a prayer to beat the drums
From the cradle to the grave

Say a prayer for all the saints
Say a prayer for all the sins
Let the dancing never end
Let the future now begin

Say a prayer to all the gods
Some are near and some are far
Say a prayer to all the gods
Make us braver than we are

Say a prayer to all the gods
Some are near and some are far
Say a prayer to all the gods
Make us braver than we are, oh yeah, yeah …

How far is too far baby?
Come on and take me, take me!
We’re crusaders of the heart
And going all the way is just the start

How far is too far?
I’ve got to be where you are
Take me deep inside your heart
And going all the way is just the start

Oooh…

There’s no such thing as too far
I’ve got to be where you are
Going all the way is just the start
The crusaders of the heart

There’s no such thing as too far
I’ve got to be where you are
Going all the way is just the start
Make us braver than we are, oh yeah, yeah…

There’s no such thing as too far
I’ve got be where you are
Going all the way is just the start
Make us braver than we are

How far is too far baby?
Come on and take me, take me!
Going all the way is just the start
Make us braver than we are …
