bravest face lyrics – rush

though we might have precious little
it’s still precious

i like that song about this wonderful world
it’s got a sunny point of view
and sometimes i feel it’s true
at least for a few of us
i like that world, it makes a wonderful song
but there’s a darker point of view
but sadly just as true
for so many among us

though we might have precious little
it’s still precious

in the sweetest child there’s a vicious streak
in the strongest man there’s a child so weak
in the whole wide world there’s no magic place
so you might as well rise put on your bravest face

i like that show where they solve all the murders
an heroic point of view
it’s got justice and vengeance too
at least so the story goes
i like that story, makes a satisfying case
but there’s a messy point of view
that’s sadly just as true
for so many among us

in softest voice there’s an acid tongue
in the oldest eyes there’s a soul so young
in the shakiest will there’s a core of steel
on the smoothest ride there’s a squeaky wheel

though we might have precious little
it’s still precious
