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But when you're withdrawn (oh-oh) it's the closest thing (oh-oh)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

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Derek: I wanna be with you forever, and you wanna be with me forever. In order to do that we need to make vows. A commitment. A contract. Give me a piece of paper.
Meredith: I don't! I... I... I don't. I have post its!
Derek: (takes the post its and a pen) Ok. What do we wanna promise each other?
Meredith: That you'll love me... even when you hate me.
Derek: To love each other, even when we hate each other. (writes it down) No running. Ever! (Mer smiles and comes and sits in front of him) Nobody walks out. No matter what happens.
Meredith: No running.
Derek: (writes it down) What else?
Meredith: That we'll take care of each other, even when we're old, and smelly, and senile. And... if I get Alzheimer's and forget you...
Derek: I will remind you who I am, every day. To take care when old, senile, and smelly (writes it down) This is forever. (signs it) Sign.
Meredith: This is our wedding. A post it? (smiles)
Derek: Mhmmm. If you sign it.
Meredith: (signs it, and hands it back. Has tears in her eyes) Now what?

Derek: (smiling) Married. (sticks their post it in Mer's locker) You see that? (Mer nods and smiles) Plenty of time.
