I am not as brave, beautiful, and patient as you are
But I am safe in your arms I listen as you say
"I'm proud of who you've become
and the person you will be tomorrow..."
And I know I would give anything up for you...

I'll follow through I promise to hold on
I'll never let go won't let you down
If you can stay proud I'll be brave somehow...

I am not that brave
Sometimes I need to hear you whisper
"Everything's O.K... You'll be fine
I'll help you find your way..."
And I have nothing but faith in you
All that I am is what you are and we are
I would give anything up for you...

I'll follow through I promise to hold on
I'll never let go won't let you down
If you can stay proud I'll be brave somehow...

Whisper... You can save me I am listening
I am waiting for your best to come alive
And help me understand the reasons why
I'm here now living a feeling unlike my fear
Outside of this life I am here now for you...

I'll follow through I promise to hold on
I'll never let go won't let you down
If you can stay proud I'll be brave and
I will follow you I promise to hold on
I'll never let go won't let you down
If you can stay proud I'll be brave somehow...

    General CommentI can't believe no one's commented on this song. I love it so much!

    It was written during his wife's pregnancy and is about his relationship with her and how he thinks she's incredibly brave for being able to carry this extra weight with her just being herself and how he won't let her down or let anything happen to her. It's basically just about his love for her and how proud he is of her courage and how much he appreciates her support.

    Song MeaningI believe Gavin said this song was about his interest in giving up music in general and his wife not letting him because she believed in him and he wrote this song to thank her for being his inspiration and always believing in him even though he didn't believe in himself.
