Bravado Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
'Cause I was raised up
To be admired to be noticed
But when you're withdrawn it's the closest thing
To assault when all eyes are on you
This will not do
Verse 3
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Verse 4
I'm faking glory
Lick my lips toss my hair
And send a smile over
And the stories brand new
But I can take it from here
I'll find my own bravado
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
It's in your blood stream
A collision of atoms that happens before your eyes
It's a marathon run or a mountain you scale without thinking of size
Verse 7
I was frightened of every little thing
That I thought was out to get me down
To trip me up and laugh at me
Verse 8
But I learnt not to want
The quiet of the room with no one around to find me out
I want the applause the approval the things that make me go
Verse 9
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Verse 10
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
Verse 11
It's in your blood stream
A collision of atoms that happens before your eyes
It's a marathon run or a mountain you scale without thinking of size
Verse 12
I was frightened of every little thing
That I thought was out to get me down
To trip me up and laugh at me
Verse 13
But I learnt not to want
The quiet of the room with no one around to find me out
I want the applause the approval the things that make me go
Verse 14
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh
