08. If We're Honest

If We're Honest
by Francesca Battistelli


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 // CHORUS: 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 // CHORUS // It would change our lives / It would set us free / It’s what we need to be // CHORUS

(Francesca Battistelli / Jeff Pardo / Molly E. Reed)

Behind the Song:
The title track is my favorite song on the album. I believe there is a lie prevalent in the church that tells us, whatever you do, don’t show anyone your brokenness. God calls us to live a life of authenticity and honesty with Him, with ourselves, and with each other. If we can tear down the walls we’ve built to hide behind, we can find healing. That’s what this song is about. It came from a very true place in my life, and writing it with two great friends, Jeff Pardo and Molly Reed, made it even more meaningful. - Francesca Battistelli
