"Courage Is" as written by Jeff Andrea and Kira Leyden....
Take all my vicious words
And turn them into something good
Take all my preconceptions
And let the truth be understood
Take all my prized possessions
Leave only what I need
Take all my pieces of doubt
And let me be what's underneath

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

We all have excuses why
Living in fear something in us dies
Like a bird with broken wings
It's not how high he flies,
But the song he sings

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

It's not how many times you've been knocked down
It's how many times you get back up

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

You keep on moving anyway
You keep on giving anyway
You keep on loving anyway

    General Commentonly 2 comments?? this song is amazing...it's so easy to relate to it. I hear the piano's first two notes, and I know the song, and tears immediately fall from my eyes. It's one of those songs that you have to listen to when everything around you is falling apart...its kind of saying "buck up, have courage, and things will get better." i cry everytime i hear it. I think of the little things that shook up my life...major heartbreak, and little things that (at the time) i thought were "the end of the world"...and its like, I got through that, I can get through anything. i love it.
