Lyrics

catch a tiger by the toe
& when it bites you don't let it go
you bite it back so it knows
that you're wild & you're born on a tight rope
build a fortress up on a hill
find a love that fits the bill
sometimes it never will
so you burn it down & you notch the kill
mama mama mama mama mama
can't help you now
be brave
mama mama mama mama mama
can't help you now
be brave
mama mama mama mama mama
can't help you now
be brave
mama mama mama mama mama
can't help you now
you wear your fears
up on your shoulders
like a bird with the weight of a boulder
will you pretend the pretense is over
or will you let your anger smolder
when my mind gets old & decrepit
& my heart forgets how to forgive
hide a bullet in my nose
& whisper that i was born on a tight rope
mama mama mama mama mama
can't help you now
be brave
mama mama mama mama mama
can't help you now
be brave
mama mama mama mama mama
can't help you now
be brave
mama mama mama mama mama
can't help you now
& the only thing that i ever learned to be true was that...
girls just wanna have fun
be brave
