~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I talked to a girl I know the other day
about her married life,
It started just two months ago.
She was sayin it was hard.
She don't know if they'll make it through,
I'm thinkin, "Baby, it ain't even begun to snow."
Darlin', You can't hide.

A brother of mine and I went out for a walk
on the moon
as the sun began to set.
I ran home. I know how cold it gets out there at night.
But, Mama, he ain't come home yet.
I been tryin' to tell him, You can't hide.

CHORUS
I'm gonna tell you now that you just can't hide
Whoever told you you could, Babe, they just lied.

Just today I fell down while I was
carryin' my cross.
You lifted it off my back.
I closed my eyes. I thought, "it's over now,"
Everything went black.
But I heard you say, You can't hide.

They may've thrown you out in the wrecking yard
when you were only two,
But are you gonna get through?
You may have swallowed down a poison pill,
Maybe it bowed you to the ground or broke your will
But I tell you
Oh, no, You can't hide.

CHORUS
I'm gonna tell you now that you just can't hide.
And if they told you could, babe, they just lied.
I'm gonna tell you now that you just can't hide.
You can't run away from what you got inside.
