song: scared and brave

He dreamed that he would be the savior
of all the people who thought that they were not worthy of love
He would convince them, or maybe trick them
if only he could just find the right ones
then he would say
It could be good for you to take some time to be afraid
you learned that fear was not o kay you learned shame
and shame is fine for hiding tears until you’re safe
but then you can just check for threats be scared and brave

I know you might have shut down certain emotions because you learned they were not safe to display
don’t show your anger, don’t show your fear, don’t show your grief, don’t show your tears
Or we will shame you or we will hate you or we will tease you all night and all day
you’ll need to earn love you won’t deserve love you have to do certain things in exchange

But how’d it all start? Who is deserving? Did Santa say you’re better than the rest?
Is it just karma? Who is at fault? Weren’t you born an expert on social finesse?

then he would say
It could be good for you to take some time to be afraid
you learned that it was not o kay you learned shame
and shame is fine for hiding tears until you’re safe
but then you can just check for threats be scared and brave
