10. Can't Hide From Your Love

Whispered And Shouted
by Aaron Shust


I was lost and I was blind
I was begging for a sign
that someone
Somewhere heard me
As You whispered in the wind
And You shouted in the waves
That You heard me
That You loved me
And I could finally
Stop resisting
Youíre Everything I ever wanted
And never knew I needed
Youíre Everywhere I ever go
I canít hide from Your Love anymore
I begin to drop my guard
Faithful as the Morning Star
You show me tender mercy
Iím surrounded by Your beauty
I get lost in Heavenís
It never changes
Never ending
Why would I want to?
I donít want to.

Behind the Song:
"Sitting down at the piano, I put my hands on an F-sharp minor and sang the chorus, Youíre everything I ever wanted and never knew I needed. I thought, ďdoes that make sense?Ē and I decided it did. It reminded me of the prodigal son who turned his head toward home as he sat in a pigsty and thought to himself, ďI canít believe I left! I never knew how much I needed my fatherís love, protection, and security.Ē I thought about that aspect of the parable and realized, no matter how far we run, we canít escape the love of our Heavenly Fatherówe cannot hide from his love. The music to the verses flowed out exactly as you hear it now, but the words didnít come together until several months later when I was doing some co-writing with Jason Ingram. With the help of Jasonís brilliant lyric ability, the verses emerged as we talked through the prodigal sonís mindset and his journey. My favorite concept in this song is in the first verse, and itís actually where the albumís title came from. I picture a wayward son pleading to God, begging for a sign: ďshow me You actually care about me!Ē He asks for a sign, and yet God has been whispering His love to him in the wind and shouting it in the waves all along." - Aaron Shust
