Deep into the Song
Matthew speaks in one of his interviews that he wanted this song to be something different. It is a song that talks about faith, and how it can be difficult to maintain.
The lyrics for Truth Be Told are beautifully written. Matthew sings of his life in an honest way; telling us he’s trying to keep the faith people have in him while he’s struggling to keep his own faith going.
He says that the Christians are going to love him anyways, so it is worth for him to try a little harder. “Truth Be Told” is a song that will speak to people of faith, and it’s one we can all relate to: “The first lie we always tell ourselves is that we’re supposed to have it all together”
If you have come here for healing, Truth Be Told will encourage you to keep going and to keep holding on. He not only wants people to heal, but also wants them to know that honesty and courage is not a lie.
Media and Video Cover
The video covers a alcohol addict who is in denial struggling to change his life, a janitor disheartened due to losing his beloved wife, and a lonely woman who posts a curated picture on social media.
He wants people to know that the God watches everything they do and it’s not to be ashamed of what they are going through but rather, a bold step to accept what they’re going through and to share it with others.
It’s Truth Be Told for the sake of living in truth, not a lie!
