"Courage" as written by Jeff Andrea, Kira M. Leyden, Orianthi Penny Panagaris and Howard M. Benson....
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

    Song MeaningThis song can easly relate to Lacey and how she wanted to kill herself, but she find the strenght to keep on living.

    "Courage is when you're in pain,
    But you keep on living anyway"

    Even thought it's a Orianthi's song I can see so much of Lacey in it.

    "Well you say you're in pain, but you keep moving on anyway"

    Lacey was the perfect choice for singing this song with her.
