Francesca Battistelli - If We're Honest (Live)



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

This is where I take apart a song that I find mindful for me, for my Truth.

Truth is hard, especially when you are self reflecting.  It has to be truthful about oneself.  I am learning, w/the help of my counselor.  Lie, means you need to keep track & that's not me, just start from the beginning & tell the truth, be honest, it's like telling a friend that something is stuck in their teeth....
Dark can be safe & can be scary, to me it's not the Truth, it's denial.  A dark hole!  Yes, we are a mess, be truthful about this!  By building our, my walls, I don't have to own up to my mistakes & can just hide away from the truth, it's like that day where you want to stay in bed & pull the covers over my head....again, not dealing w/whatever situation I am in, that to me, isn't the truth.

My Truth, I am broken & I can be fixed....this is changing my life.  Love can heal!

Now, Love can heal, however, as I have said, my opinion, it does take 2....no matter the relationship kids, siblings,friends, family, ex's, at work w/co-workers, bosses, managers, no matter the mix, most all can be repaired, but if once a cheater, then always, I'm not sure, been there....

Yes, Love can heal, included peace, communication, compassion, listen, patience......and more,..by coming together, being broken together, all can mend.

Seek help, seek advice, seek friends, journal, read the right books,
This can change our lives, this is changing my life.
Not to be in the dark.
Step out.
Take that risk.
Be Honest, it does get easier!
Does this make sense?

I am no counselor, yes, life is hard, but the moment that I have opened my eyes up, Nov 2009, I have lost a lot.
Family.
Friends.
But I have pushed forward as I am in search of the truth, my truth, my journey. I can't wonder or help another w/their's, just me.  My Yellow Brick Road that I a taking one step @ a time.
What's my Truth, yes I will get there, but for now, for the World to know, one step at a time.
As you can see, I haven't been here on much, in some time.
As my Blog is changing, I have been thinking about changing this all up.
I used to be on more to be in touch w/family, but now, it's more turning into a Journal & my feeling have come out in songs, lyrics.
Yes, more Christian songs, as too, past of my Journey, finding my spiritual way too, is very important, that's another topic.....to start I was told to go & then we wouldn't even discuss our teachings, learnings from Church services.
Anyway, as I am finding y Truth, more will come out.  I can grow & that's my goal....


Here I am a little seed, just that little girl growing up, trying to be molded, pushing away the heavv dirt, growing, stretching into the sun-light.....looking for the approval......more to come...
