Lyrics Edit

(Orianthi)
Take all my vicious words
And turn them into something good
Take all my preconceptions
And let the truth be understood

(Sturm)
Take all my prized possessions
And leave only what I need
Take all my pieces of doubt
And let me be what's underneath

(Orianthi & Sturm)
Courage is when you're afraid,
But you keep on moving anyway
Courage is when you're in pain,
But you keep on living anyway

(Orianthi)
We all have excuses why
When living in fear something in us dies
(Orianthi & Sturm)
Like a bird with broken wings
(Sturm)
It's not how high he flies,
(Orianthi & Sturm)
But the song he sings

(Orianthi & Sturm)
Courage is when you're afraid,
But you keep on moving anyway
Courage is when you're in pain,
But you keep on living anyway

(Orianthi)
It's not how many times you've been knocked down
(Sturm)
It's how many times you get back up

(Orianthi)
Courage is when you've lost your way,
But you find your strength anyway

(Orianthi & Sturm; alternating)
Courage is when you're afraid
Courage is when it all seems grey
Courage is when you make a change,
And you keep on living anyway (anyway)
Keep on giving (keep on giving anyway)
Courage is when you're in pain,
But you keep on moving anyway
And you keep on loving anyway
