04. Hide

Genesis
by Joy Williams



 

To anyone who hides behind a smile
To anyone who holds their pain inside
To anyone who thinks they’re not good enough
To anyone who feels unworthy of love
To anyone who ever closed the door
Closed their eyes and locked themselves away
You don’t have to hide
You don’t have to hide anymore
You don’t have to face this on your own
You don’t have to hide anymore
So come out, come out, come out wherever you are
Anyone who’s trying to cover up their scars
To anyone who’s ever made a big mistake
We all been there, so don’t be ashamed
Come out, come out and join the rest of us
You’ve been alone for way too long
And if you feel like no one understands
Come to the One with scars on His hands
‘Cause He knows where you are and where you’ve been
His scars will heal you if you let Him

Behind the Song:
'This was inspired by a Patty Griffin song called “Be Careful,” which took me on a journey thinking about what kinds of things I wish I could convey in a letter like this to someone. What are those nail polish ideas that have chipped away over time? It was those things like hiding behind the smile or not feeling worthy of love – all the things I’d felt in my life. I had the lyrics written down, but I was missing the chorus. So I called my friends Matthew West and Jason Houser and started telling them the story of how I’d been looking in the mirror and noticing all of my little smile lines, and I started wondering how many of those smiles have been genuine. I want my laugh lines to be real. So it suddenly came to me: “You don’t have to hide.” And all of a sudden all of those thoughts just kept coming and the melody and chorus was written so quickly. It really is kind of a “carpe diem” song. “Come to the avenue of broken souls and you’ll see my face.” It’s really an unabashed song about not being afraid of who we are and knowing that when we really reveal ourselves to Christ is when healing begins.' - Joy Williams
