Lyrically Speaking (again)…Hidden Away

The universe is really trying to convey a message or messages to me, because once again, the lyrics are speaking to me.

I enjoy Josh Grobans songs and Hidden Away is one I’ve liked for some time.  While I’ve listened to the lyrics, I must not have really heard them as they were yelling at me this morning. 

Over mountains and sky blue seas
On great circles, will you watch for me?
The sweetest feeling I’ve got inside
I just can’t wait to get lost in your eyes

And all these words that you meant to say
Held in silence day after day
Words of kindness that our poor hearts crave
Please, don’t keep them hidden away

Sing it out so I can finally breathe in
I can take in all the same
Holding out for something I believe in
All I really need today

I want to free your heart, I want to see your heart
Please, don’t keep your heart hidden away

You’re a wonder, how bright you shine
A flickered candle in a short lifetime

A secret dreamer that never shows
If no one sees you then nobody knows

And all these words you were meant to say
Held in silence day after day
Words of kindness that our poor hearts crave
Please, don’t keep them hidden away

Sing it out so I can finally breathe in
I can take in all the same
Reaching out for someone I believe in
All I really need today

I want to feel your love, will you reveal your love?
Please, don’t keep your love hidden away
I want to free your heart, I want to see your heart
Please, don’t keep your heart hidden away

Hidden Away

The recurring theme seems to be that I need to speak up, let my voice be heard, stop hiding (thoughts, emotions, etc.,).  These are not coincidences, but instead intercessions I need to heed.  I’m guilty y’all, but I’m listening and I’m hearing what God/the universe is telling me.  It’s not going to be easy boys and girls because you’re girl has a lot on her mind and much  that needs to be released.  It’s not going to be easy, but I’m going to do it. Phew!

Live the life you love; love the life you live!

  1. same here reggie, motormouth lady tee hee. sorry blu, slap me later 🙂

    its really beautiful lyrics and watching the video gave it real depth. a bit too emo for me still, but hey, what do I know. I spend my time listening to too much hardcore rap

  2. Oh, my dear Reggie and Chrome, you have so much more to learn about me. I’m harmless until provoked and even then, it may take some time for me to relatiate in whatever form I deem necessary. Since confrontation is not my typical means of handling issues, I tend to take in the misdeed(s), evaluate how I need to handle it, and then I respond. Sadly, in doing so, I often allow things to accumilate and find issues compounded, which is what I’ve done with some trangressions concerning a couple of people in my life.

    Through the songs, I’m hearing 1) the adverse effect of allowing things to continue, 2) that I need to free myself and 3) handling them is the only way to deal and move on. The latter is currently imperative.

    Reg, your comment that I highlighted in my reply is very much something that’s been a part of my internalizing, so stay on my back to ensure I handle what I need to do. Feel free to ‘nag’ me via email if necessary. 😉

    Chrome – you’re just a brat! Need I say more? ahahaha!

  3. I’ve never heard this song but I would like to share with you one of the most inspirational songs in my life since childhood. No matter how many times I’ve listened, it continues to move me in a forceful way. I hate Eddie Murphy made fun of it in the film Coming To America. Lol.
