Quotes & Songs Inspirational Thread - Part 1

By Jungledog · Dec 13, 2014 ·
  1. Good morning all! I had an idea for a thread here in recovery. How about we use this thread to share songs and quotes that have inspired or supported us along the way in recovery? There are many songs and quotes buried in our threads. I thought it might be cool and helpful to place them in their own special spot. I will start by posting one of my favorites. It reminds me that we are all caught up in our opiate cage and that finding our voice is the way out.

    Love to you all.

    "Brave" by 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
    When 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, just 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

    And since 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
