  • If your hurt
    Why don't you tell someone
    Don't feel bad
    You're not the only one yeah
    Don't go hiding
    Hiding in the shade
    Don't go hiding
    Hiding in the shade

    If you were abused
    Find someone to help you
    I know you were used
    What are you gonna' do?

    Don't go hiding
    Hiding in the shade
    Don't go hiding
    Hiding in the shade

    Don't go hiding
    Hiding in the shade
    Don't go hiding,
    Hiding, in the shade,
    Hiding, hiding, don't go,
    Hiding, hiding, hiding, in the shade,
    Yeah, in the shade, in the, in the shade,
    In the shade, in the shade, in the shade. Writer/s: BEN GILLIES, DANIEL JOHNS

  • Goldenchairman from Greenland"Don't go hidding in the shade" is what there is in the chorus, actually.
    The song is a very simple (in terms of the lenght of lyrics) advice for people who were abused and hurt not to shut witin and hide their pain, but rather to try and reach out for help.
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjI always thought that they meant someone who was physically or sexually abused, by a parent, neighbor, or whatnot.
  • James from Calgary, AbThis is truly an incredible song although I think the meaning is somewhat incorrect. The Lyrics are actually "Dont go hiding in, HIding in the shade" not hot in and I think he is referring to bottling up the anger inside and going to a dark place or shutting down. They make reference to talking to someone to help you through the tough times. Definitely about bullying though however I dont think its about avoiding shade where cool kids hang out and rather not letting being bullied destroy you as a person.
