Brave Enough

  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • Christina Perri joins forces with Lindsay Stirling on this song. Like many of the album's tracks this was influenced by the spirit of the violinist's best friend and pianist Gavi, who tragically passed away during the writing of the record. "I've learned how to open my heart in a way I've never opened it before," Stirling said. "You have to be brave to do that. That's why the album is called Brave Enough. Vulnerability is often seen as a sign of weakness, however the exact opposite is true. The people who are authentic and vulnerable are the bravest. Gavi, was so Brave. He loved with his whole heart and after he passed, I had to be brave enough to keep going."
