Today I heard this song for the first time, and the lyrics- even just the first few words- really spoke to me, and I thought I should share it with you all.
Please give it a listen. It's called Truth Be Told and it's by Matthew West. (link in description, but you could just search it up) I'm gonna give you a small part of the lyrics:
"Lie number one you're supposed to have it all together And when they ask you how you're doing Just smile and tell them, 'Never better'
Lie number 2 everybody's life is perfect except yours So keep your messes and your wounds And your secrets safe with you behind closed doors
Truth be told The truth is rarely told, now
I say I'm fine, yeah I'm fine oh I'm fine, hey I'm fine but I'm not I'm broken And when it's out of control I say it's under control but it's not And you know it
I don't know why it's so hard to admit it When being honest is the only way to fix it There's no failure, no fall There's no sin you don't already know So let the truth be told"
-Matthew West So those were some of the lyrics, but not all. And wow, so meaningful and true. I hope you give it a listen and it impacts you for the better.
