This page is devoted to songwriter and performer, Dan Hill, who wrote a song Sometimes When We Touch which is of particular relevance to this page. If truth and honesty are the components with which credibility is measured then truth must be unequivocal and honesty must shine through leaving no room for doubt. Dan Hill may have said it best in his song, Sometimes When We Touch which was written “to win the heart of the 22-year-old object of his affection.” In the opinion of this writer, some of the most memorable lyrics conveyed powerful connotations as with these two line: “I’d rather hurt you honestly than mislead you with a lie.”
Understanding that at times the truth really does hurt no matter how tactful or empathetic it is presented; and honesty unvarnished will not lessen the pain that is sometimes caused when we are forced to accept it; the credible entity must, nevertheless, persist in cloaking itself in these two bedrocks of credibility for the sake of its own brand, unblemished and in tact as it must remain. We learn that it becomes clear after struggle, disappointment and other such tribulations that confronting our fears, insecurities and weaknesses must be considered as valuable as our strengths, feats and accomplishments; and as Dan Hill reminds us in the song with these two lines, “I’m just another writer still trapped within my truth…” we really can’t escape the truth which exist within us and makes us who we are.
And sometimes when we touch, the honesty’s too much, and I have to close my eyes and hide; I want to hold you till I die, till we both break down and cry,
I want to hold you till the fear in me subsides.
