06. Any Other Way

The Light Meets The Dark
by Tenth Avenue North



 

Don't say goodbye, don't say hello
We're just standing on the surface
Don't say alright, don't say I know
I promise it's not worth it

I want to know who you are
Even if you're falling apart
Reach in and touch your scars
And all the shame you've kept in your heart

'Cause it's not enough
it's not enough
just to say that we're okay
i need your hurt i need your pain
it's not love any other way

Let's not pretend
Stop your parade
trying to convince me
That you're alright and everything's okay
Do you even know me

'Cause I already know who you are
And all things that kept us apart
So reach in and touch My scars
and know the price I paid for your heart

'Cause it's not enough
it's not enough
just to say that we're okay
i need your hurt i need your pain
it's not love any other way

A broken and contrite heart
I will not despise
come as you are
and I won't close my eyes
I won't close my eyes
I won't close my eyes
I won't close my eyes

'Cause it's not enough
It's not enough
Just to say that we're okay
I need your hurt I need your pain
It's not love any other way

'Cause it's not enough it's not enough
just to say that you're okay
You needed my hurt, you needed my pain
It's not love any other way
It's not love any other way
Yeah, it's not love any other way



Behind the Song:
ďEven in relationships with each other, like in a marriage relationship, if you donít understand your spouse or even in friendships, if you donít understand the hurt and pain that someone is going through, if you try to mask that and try to act like youíre okay, itís really not a love relationship. This was a call of God saying to us ĎI need your pain and I need your hurtí and being able to express that to God and not just to mask it. Weíre allowed to wrestle with God. Weíre allowed to question and weíre allowed to get mad and say, ĎIím really hurt right now and this is what Iím going through.í I think that is a really huge part of what it means to be in a love relationship with someone because you are completely naked and exposed before them. This is who I am, this is what Iím going through and this is how I feel. Here it is! When someone can then love in return, then thatís when itís true love. So thatís what the lyric is calling us to in this song. (Jason Jamison) -- Tenth Avenue North
