This deeply personal song finds TobyMac processing life as a Christian husband, father and artist. He addresses his firstborn son Truett, who had just turned 20 when TobyMac penned the tune.So lift your head, lift your head
Lift your head to where your help comes from
Yeah, you, you're not alone
We've all been there
Scars come with livin'
TobyMac told Billboard
he "had a few people in mind" when he wrote the song, but he started subconsciously focusing on his son, telling Truett that life can start throwing heavy things at times. "I wanted him to know that he's not alone when the world might get the best of him from time to time," he continued. "When he looks up and he's got some scars, I wanted him to know that we all face those things and that he's not alone in it."
