Hideaway Lyrics

One day the boy decided
To let them know the way he felt inside
He could not stand to hide it
His mother she broke down and cried

Oh my father
Why don't you talk to me now
Oh my mother
Do you still cry yourself to sleep

Are you still proud of your little boy
Don't be afraid (Be afraid)
You don't have to hide away

The boy he was rejected
By the people that he cared for
It's not what they expected
But he could not keep it secret anymore

Far from home now
Waiting by the telephone
There's a new world
You can make it on your own

Are you still proud of your little boy
Don't be afraid (Be afraid)
You don't have to hide away
No

(Don't be afraid)
(Love will mend your broken wing)
(Time will slip away)
(Learn to be brave)

Oh my father
Why don't you talk to me now
Oh my mother
Do you still cry yourself to sleep

Are you still proud of your little boy
Don't be afraid (be afraid)
You don't have to hide away

(Don't be afraid)
(Love will mend your broken wing)
(Time will slip away)
(Learn to be brave)

1 Thoughts & Meanings

The song is a boy who comes out as gay to his family and friends, and the consequences that follow. It's also about the bravery that it takes, and how you don't have to be afraid or "hide away". Great message for kids who are confused about how to let people know who they really are. This was the song that helped me realize that it was okay to come out! Thank you, Erasure!
