You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love
Or you can start speaking up
Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do
When they settle ‘neath your...

"BRAVE" is about facing bullying. I think it's about you needing to stand up for yourself and show everyone the real "YOU"
"Nothing's gonna hurt to the way the words do," is saying that if you be confident and stand up for yourself, you will know they can't hurt you They can't break you.
"Or you can be the backlash of somebody's lack of love, or you can start speaking up ." Is kinda saying that you've been hurt and what you are now is a result of that hate. It is saying at the end that you can stand up, wipe yourself off and keep going and speak up.It is basically (in summary) saying that if you've been bullied you can help. You can speak up. And if you ee something you can tell or speak up for that person.

The song was written by Bareilles and Jack Antonoff from the band fun., as the singer was inspired from the struggles that a close friend dealt with in regard to coming out as gay.

I think this song is so special to me but when the producer came in the bathroom they checked the sound check with me and joe do the vocals but we’re going to be great vocalists to be careful with and to practice our music and production and also filming.
I think this song has to do with all the bullying that has been going around. My mother was being bullied by an adult that was a few years older than her and she stood up that woman, my mother did. Stand up for yourself, even if it gets worse. Don't let people push you around.

Be brave and speak your truth, even if you’re afraid. This song helped me end my abusive marriage.
