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But when you're withdrawn (oh-oh) it's the closest thing (oh-oh)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

Arizona: Oh my God! I mean, I understand why you're into her. She's hot. Wait, she likes you?
Nathan: What? I mean, I'm going to try not to be offended at that.
Arizona: No, no, no. It's just that Derek was--Derek was epic for her. They were the great love story. I mean, that girl's heart beat for Derek Shepherd. It just...it never occurred to me that she would ever be with anyone else. He was perfect. He was everything. That man turned her world. It...I spooked you. Don't be spooked.

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
