  • Lyrics
  • This is the opening track and first single from The Light Meets The Dark, the second major label studio album from American Christian pop rock band Tenth Avenue North. The band comprises vocalist Mike Donehey, guitarist Jeff Owen and drummer Jason Jamison.
  • Donehey said in publicity materials: "On this record I really tried to be honest about how messed up I am. We wanted it to be a collision between our hearts and God's truth. His grace collides with the dark inside of us. His blood can cover us and I'm trying to call people out and say 'Look, please do not hide your darkness. Expose that to the light.' I know that's the scariest thought, but its where freedom and healing starts to take place. It's where it all starts to happen."
  • Owen commented that he feels this song encapsulates the theme of the album. He explained: "It's where the title of the record comes from. It's basically about confession - confessing your sins to one another that you might be healed, which is a scary thing to do. You can believe in God and love God, but confessing the things that you keep secret and hold on to - that keep you tied to your past and weigh you down - confessing those things is not easy. You can experience such freedom in telling someone else. You know that God knows everything about you, but telling someone else is an entirely different thing."
