Young, Will - Brave Man Lyrics




See these scars of these years gone by
They don't hurt me, just remind me I can cry
All that I know is we'll slip as we go
Like dancers hold the bar across the wall
Draw up the horses, spears at the ready
I'm not afraid to fight the war

I'm a brave man
Running through the rain
I'm a brave man
Not scared to feel the pain
I'm a brave man
Follow me alone
Not afraid to tumble
Not afraid to fall
I'm a brave man

I met strangers to become my friends
Together we'll shine on this battlefield
Draw up the horses, spears at the ready
I'm not afraid to fight the war

I'm a brave man
Running through the rain
I'm a brave man
Not scared to feel the pain
I'm a brave man
Follow me alone
Not afraid to tumble
Not afraid to fall

All my reasons and my tears they spill on this fake [?]
Aches and pains each took it out there bursting out these pores
Melted wax on fireplaces pumping through my heart
I don't need this misery anymore

I'm a brave man
Running through the rain
I'm a brave man
Not scared to feel the pain
I'm a brave man
Follow me alone
Not afraid to tumble
Not afraid to fall.

  2. MacGregor88

    Would Will Young be "brave" enough to portray the violent thugs as black guys? No? Didn't think so.

  3. arab man

    What i see is that she is a girl not a man. Stop lying.

  4. Terry Collett

    I love this

  5. Geoff Edwards

    I love this guys stuff amazeballs

  6. Manish Malhotra

    Wonderful touching to my heart

  7. DroneGuy 75

    I'm shocked that this incredible song and video hasn't had tens of millions of views.

  8. Calvini2013

    What a great actor!!

  9. Katrina Thompson

    I love this im straight single lady. But. I watched this cried felt it was brillant message video we all need to accept were all differrnt there no wrong or right do what makes you happy. No one has right. To take that away from you to be eho you want to be. Truely love this will love it xxx

  10. Wadim Kramer

    ein guter Song

  11. Leviathan_AFRL

    I.love.this.song!! I first heard it and it hit me so hard with the feels because I can relate so damn much

  12. Richard Albert Henderson

    I've always wanted to go shopping naked but I've just never had this queen's bravery!

  13. Savage Groove VEVO

    That was filmed in Brighton

  14. keivefy

    Woman runs down the high street naked and is abused by on-lookers. What a surprise!
    Never liked Will Youngs squeaky voice.

  15. ok okokok

    This is not a gender or intersex issue - you walk through any urban areas butt naked regardless of who you are - you will get abuse, laughter, and even arrested. Privileged white often live in cuckoo fantasy land far away from the real world.

  16. Finn

    As the Lead Actor in this music video I was a protegé in the truest, French meaning of the word. I will speak with people who are more experienced and wise than I am to help me decide whether a photograph of the outer human (rather than inner soul) I once was, constitutes underwear. But wait, hold on...... actually, any photograph or Polaroid picture is not underwear at all. Maybe this is, forgive me for typing this, pornographic.

    The penny drops.

  17. David Bennetts

    As a straight guy this had me in tears so I can only guess the impact if you can directly relate to it. Huge credit to the young actor who I imagine must of felt vulnerable at times during that shoot.

  18. mike4virginie

    chop whatever you want off it can't turn you into a man as much as removing 4 fingers doesn't make me a t-rex

  19. Yonatan Goldin

    Chopping your ding dong makes you brave

  20. Godswill Akpan

    I love ur video will with great interpretations and meaning to decipher

  21. oopster74

    I like the song (although not a lot happens in it), I’m confused by the video, only searched it out after seeing Kirsty Walk bring it up while interviewing Germaine Greer who basically avoided answering the question, wonder if she was a politician in a previous life.

  22. sarcocaulon

    Will Young thank you so much for the song and for this video! I love it so much!!!!!!!

  23. Daffa Rahman

    So stupid !!

  24. Ian Johnson

    Excellent song - spoilt by a shite sjw gayass video .

  25. Lilique Jael

    I knew it...and the entire time, I just let my heart break....

  26. ShadowGamer 10837

    Such an amazing song.

    As a trans guy I know how hard it is for trans* people to go out and try and show people who they are, especially when they haven’t started T or had any surgery yet.

  27. Tony Essington

    Needs more publicity
    Oct 19 2017

  28. TJ P

    Why have I never heard of this? This is truly beautiful. Speaks volumes. I always feel exposed, like everyone can see. Holy shit this is amazing. I needed this to exist. Wow.

  29. Nathan de Groot

    Ur a mongeloid if u walk naked, really when kids sees it

  30. carschmn

    The lead in this is really brave and does a great job portraying the defiance snd bravery trans people need every day to face the world.

  31. broomsterm

    Beyond absurd. Brave Man? Retarded Man is more like it. This is horseshit of the highest order. Get thee some psychiatry...

  32. Chisa Sakamoto

    This was such a powerful video

  33. BigDuke6ixx

    This whole gender reassignment thing is nonsense. It shouldn't even be an option.

  34. The Junebox

    so beautiful, meaningful, deep, supportive powerful message is this? amazing song, amazing video!

  35. Nakota

    holy fucking shit😭😭😭 I love this😭

  36. That Bowler Hat Guy ASMR

    This is a good.

  37. McKenzie Powell

    this is my favourite song! as a trans man I feel this is so true!

  38. If you think you know me

    Damn. I relate to this so much. It just hits so close to home. WOW

  39. Dani Wink

    Why isn't this on ITunes!!??

  40. mike ahearne

    beautiful song very fitting to the video. but really people in all walks of life can relate to it. I absolutely love Wills music he is gifted and talented.

  41. Darian Alexander

    i am in tears..

  42. Stanford Filbrick Pines

    I'm trans myself and this video is incredible, it gave me hope for my transition and acceptance as the man I dream to be. Thank you so much for giving myself and the rest of the LGBT community hope, god bless you Will Young. ❤❤❤❤

  43. Hey Chris

    See these scars of these years gone by
    They don't hurt me, just remind me I can cry

    Like dancers hold the bar across the wall
    Draw up the horses, spears at the ready
    I'm not afraid to fight the war

    I'm a brave man
    Running through the rain
    I'm a brave man
    Not scared to feel the pain
    I'm a brave man
    Follow me alone
    Not afraid to tumble
    Not afraid to fall
    I'm a brave man

    I met strangers to become my friends
    Together we'll shine on this battlefield
    Draw up the horses, spears at the ready
    I'm not afraid to fight the war

    I'm a brave man
    Running through the rain
    I'm a brave man
    Not scared to feel the pain
    I'm a brave man
    Follow me alone
    Not afraid to tumble
    Not afraid to fall

    All my reasons and my tears they spill on this fake [?]

  46. Brian

    I'm straight and I love Will Young, his music is so on point and so very deep. I have every single album ( which is actually hard to get in the states ) and they don't leave the cd player. I've been a fan for many years and feel it's a shame that he doesn't come to the US but at the same time I get it. I think he is incredible singer, dude has so much talent. It might also be because half my family is British :)

    Brian

    aligary I'm sure people here are weird about that. My mom is from Coventry England, so half my family at least from my mom's side still lives there. When I first heard his music I was blown away. I absolutely love him and his music. I've been listening to Echoes and some earlier stuff of his at work and everyone is like dang who is that? I mean like straight gangster looking people lol love him. I love all of his music, I think Echoes is probably my favorite. But I love Evergreen, jealousy, who am I ( princes trust version ) grace. What am I saying I love them all lol.

    Harold Millican

    Brian Potts I'm glad someone else in the states is a fan. I just sent away for Echoes and will order Young's current album! I'm giving you a shout out, because I have a hard time getting his music too!

    Brian

    Harold Millican Yes I am absolutely a fan LOL.. I could seriously listen to Will for hours on end. You will love and I mean love the Echoes album, which I'm sure you've heard most of it. I do wish he would come to the states at some point, I would for sure be there. I wish more people knew about Will, when people get in my car and ask "who is this?" this is incredible - it's like they instantly become a fan.

    Harold Millican

    There's a remix of "Come On" by Cahill... I love to death. it's here on YouTube!

    Brian

    Harold Millican Ohhh! I haven't heard that one yet. I'll have to check it out

  47. Leo

    Tomorrow I will start testosterone.

    Claire Beloeuvre

    I'm happy for you !!

    Sandy Webb

    .wow ! Great singing and interesting video xx

    i am area 51's cousin

    Hope it's been good so far :)

    howdy im just a yt account

    2 years now! Congrats

    August

    Started 8 months ago. This video is amazing it's so accurate.

  48. Annaliese Eseilanna

    i love this vid :))

  49. carschmn

    Great video. To me it's more about the aggressions we (transmen) face when we come out (bare ourselves) to others than streaking or transbashing.

    Innocent Ferret

    You mean the reality that you're a girl...

    Fox

    Educate yourself

  50. Jacob Beastly Cook

    omg was trying so hard not to cry

  51. Płonąca Parasolka

    he's so beautiful, all the way

  52. Claire Shuck

    Finn you are so courageous and seem like a beautiful human being, surely that is all that should matter in this World. I hope your operation went well and I wish you well with your transition. This song and video truly touch my soul. My son is not transgender, but he was horrendously bullied at school from age 12 to 16 which left him a virtual recluse and with very bad depression etc. he is now 23 and still the same, my heart is breaking for him and everyone who has to suffer abuse and lack of understanding or compassion. What is wrong with so many people? Their emotional education is sorely lacking. I think schools should be showing this wonderful video to pupils as part of a drive to emotionally educate kids as it obviously isn't happening at home by their parents. We all have a right to be accepted for who we are regardless of looks, race, gender, colour, sexuality or religion, thank you so much Will and your team for a beautiful and profound song and video. Love to you all!:)

  53. Dainius Teišerskis

    I'm just in love with this song. Great clip!

  54. Mary Bernard Black

    La pace dei sensi. Bellissima <3 E lui è un grande dai tempi di Light my fire!

  55. Paul Denton

    Very strong. I love it.

  56. Paul Jay

    Brave video

  57. UsernameUnidentifful

    Reported for nudity....

  58. A K

    Ι'd really like to know the name of the trans guy in the video. Btw,both the song and the video are amazing.

  59. TRANSfused

    Can you make this available in the US to buy? This song speaks to me on so many levels. Especially as a trans man...

  60. Vanda Van Niekerk

    Brave gorgeous!!

  61. 43nostromo

    Great song. Greetings from Charlotte, North Carolina. Which I'm not exactly proud of these days.

  62. Az0oZ Q8

    He have a small ass

  63. droppedbye.

    lOL.. Very clever Vid.
    Transgender thing going on.

  64. TomieCupcake

    tuyệt vời

  65. Guilherme Silva

    fucking this video

  66. Kieron Thomas

    clever!

    Stephen Lee Smith

    Kieron Thomas !!!

  67. Judgement Boy

    as a trans man this is a really wonderful video!

    Michael McGrath

    You're a woman and always will be!

    Bastian Hacker

    @Michael McGrath A biological woman, yes. But Judgement Boy never said that he would magically change his chromosomes. However, one can change their physical appearance and their name and pronouns in order to live as the opposite sex, not to be the opposite sex. You appear to have a problem with people being happy, when they can finally love themselves. I would really like to understand, why this bothers you.

    August

    @Michael McGrath 😂😂😂😂🙈🙈🙈🙈 leave the internet threads to people with intelligence. You add nothing to the world.

    August

    @Bastian Hacker I think that logic is too much for Michael to handle mate.

    Bastian Hacker

    @August Well, I never know if people just don't understand the topic yet or if they simply don't want to understand it and just want to express their opinion regardless of other opinions. If first, then a dialogue could happen, which is always my hope. However, I almost never get a response to my questions, so I never know. That is sad, because it is no big deal if somenone has a different opinion but if they are not willing to even have an argument about it then it is all just so unnecessary...

  68. Martyn Notman

    beautiful video. thank you will..

  69. TheConfuzzledCat

    Lyrically, this is the best song I have ever heard. Very moving and so true. Thanks, Will.

    TheConfuzzledCat

    +TheConfuzzledCat 2:28 That guy in the plaid... I think that's Lewis...

  70. Waleed Janahi

    love Will Young...too bad the UK singles chart has no place for his talent...

  71. Frauke Schmidt

    Never disliked a video of Will's before. First time. There's always a first time.

    key tann

    putain de transphobe

  72. Mark

    I find this music video and song eautiful and understand everything, except the part where he rejects the cardiggan in minute 2:57 or so. What is it supposed to represent?

    AlexDoesntDance

    +Mark I dont know, of course, what it was intended to represent... But the way I see it personally (I hope you dont mind me responding to such an old comment, but it's thus far un-responded-to and I feel you deserve an answer), when you're trans, a lot of people have a lot of suggestions on ways you can compromise to be 'safer'. They generally involve ways to seem less trans, seem less like yourself and more like something others are comfortable with, or to "cover up" (i.e. the cardigan)-- and that shields you from the metaphorical cold your 'naked' self feels in the presence of others. But it's unacceptable.
    This is a brave man. He doesnt need to cover up. He can handle the cold.

    Mark

    +Alex Lemons Thank you very much, it makes a lot of sense.

  73. Tiffani Estrada

    How can you download this song ?!

  74. SpikeXtreme

    One song and video has made me see transgender people differently.
    Will Young you are a very talented song writer.

  75. Gabriel Delaveiga

    clip nota 1000

  76. V Wade

    I would really love to see a follow-up video featuring this actor which is joyous and confident -- where this guy has a circle friends, love(s) and allies. This video still conjures strong emotions in me, as it did when I first saw it.
    Let idiots like those depicted in this video torment each other... those mall rats deserve those immature idiots.

  77. Koj Sum Toj Sum

    Amaizing!!! I love this song :)

  78. żiru

    Chelsea supporters sucks xD

  79. Asia Spina

    This song is amazing and haunting. Love it.

  80. OptiDracon

    It's extremely annoying that this video was flagged and age restricted, it feels like a few idiots are trying to cover this video up, and as a trans person that feels very insulting.

  81. Astridy Gurgel

    Yes, yes, I loved the video. Trans people must be respected. It's a shame that prejudice is like a monster that follows inhabiting the minds of men. Congratulations for having made this video!

  82. Craig Darcy

    Well done Will this song is one of your best! Super love it!

  83. mrs lewis

    What an outstanding video!

  84. Adam Miller

    Good song.
