if we’re honest

If we’re honest- by Francesca Battistelli

If we’re honest is a beautiful song by Francesca Battistelli about love and truth.  It’s about the difficulty we sometimes experience in relationships, be it romantic or not, and that the truth is harder to admit, realize and vocalize.  We might not be consciously avoiding the truth because it can be painful or has been painful.  However, if we choose to go through it and grow through it we eventually find that it is the love found at the cross that heals us.  Sometimes when we have no words there are songs that minister to our hearts.  The bottom line of this one is that love can heal what hurt divides.  And of course, that requires an openness, a vulnerability–honesty. xx – D

Truth is harder than a lie
The dark seems safer than the light
And everyone has a heart that loves to hide
I’m a mess and so are you
We’ve built walls nobody can get through
Yeah, it may be hard, but the best thing we could ever do, ever do

Bring your brokenness, and I’ll bring mine
‘Cause love can heal what hurt divides
And mercy’s waiting on the other side
If we’re honest
If we’re honest
Don’t pretend to be something that you’re not
Living life afraid of getting caught
There is freedom found when we lay
our secrets down at the cross, at the cross
Bring your brokenness, and I’ll bring mine
‘Cause love can heal what hurt divides
And mercy’s waiting on the other side
If we’re honest
If we’re honest
It would change our lives
It would set us free
It’s what we need to be

Bring your brokenness, and I’ll bring mine
‘Cause love can heal what hurt divides
And mercy’s waiting on the other side
If we’re honest
If we’re honest
