COURAGE

Words and Music by John Cannon

 

 

Set up another glass, fill it to the brim,

and we’ll put down another one,

as the courage fades away.

 

Stories are for people, give us somewhere else to go

I’m sure we all know a few

This story’s about man who got caught out in the rain,

he was never the same.

 

So set up another glass, fill it to the brim,

and we’ll put down another one,

as the courage fades away.

 

 

There was a confrontation. Yes, it could have meant a life,

he went looking for the help that never came.

Many could have stood there with him, but they turned and walked away,

they didn’t think it was the time to take a stand.

They got scared and he had to draw the line.

But, Fate stepped in and things turned out just fine.

 

 

 

This is about a girl who went out looking for the sun.

She got burned real bad, but she held on.

There was a misconception. Yes she thought she had a man,

but commitment turned him back into a boy.

He got scared and he had to draw the line.

Fate jumped in and things for her went fine.

 

Sometimes life is something that you have to grab and hold.

Living it can hurt you, but living feeds the soul.

Like your breath is keeping you alive

Like your body needs water to survive

So, set up another glass, fill it to the brim,

and we’ll put down another one,

as the courage fades away.

 

This is about an old friend and the family that he loved.

He kept on working, but he just could not provide.

He often would grow angry, coming very close to hate,

but his fear of losing love was much too strong.

He got scared and he had to draw the line

With both feet fate jumped in and things went fine.

 

Sometimes life is something that you have to grab and hold

Living it can hurt you, but living feeds the soul.

Like your breath is keeping you alive

Like your body needs water to survive

Like your body needs water to survive
