Bravado Lyrics

All my life, I've been fighting a war
I can't talk, to you or your friends
It's not only you
My heart jumps around when I'm alluded to
This will not do
'Cause I was raised up (oh-oh)
To be admired (oh-oh), to be noticed (oh-oh)
But when you're withdrawn (oh-oh) it's the closest thing (oh-oh)
To assault when all eyes are on you (oh-oh)
This will not do
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
I'm faking glory
Lick my lips, toss my hair
And turn the smile on
And the story's brand-new
But I can take it from here
I'll find my own bravado
It's a switch flipped
It's a pill tipped back
A moon eclipsed, whoa
And I can tell you that when the lights come on
I'll be ready for this
It's in your bloodstream
A collision of atoms
That happens before your eyes
It's a marathon run or a mountain you scale
Without thinking of size
I was frightened of
Every little thing that I thought was out to get me down
To trip me up
And laugh at me
But I learnt not to want
The quiet of a room with no one around to find me out
I want the applause, the approval
The things that make me go
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
It's a switch flipped
It's a pill tipped back
It's a moon eclipsed, whoa
And I can tell you that when the lights come on
I'll be ready for this
It's in your bloodstream
A collision of atoms
That happens before your eyes
It's a marathon run or a mountain you scale
Without thinking of size
I was frightened of
Every little thing that I thought was out to get me down
To trip me up
And laugh at me
But I learnt not to want
The quiet of a room with no one around to find me out
I want the applause, the approval
The things that make me go
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

The first time I kissed my wife, she wasn't my wife then, she was just this girl in a bar. But when we kissed, it was like, I gotta tell you, it was like I'd never kissed any other woman before. It was like my first kiss. The right kiss.

Derek

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."
