"You Can Hide It" as written by and Tomas Nils Naeslund Simon Frank Grenehed....
Now you have been staring at the sun for a while
Is it hurting your eyes
I know you want to put those shades on
And walk on home with a tan
To arrive and leave with style

But didn't a warm wind blow right through you
Melting the ice
I know you want to put those shades on
And walk on home as planned
But stand still for a while

You can hide it
You can fight it
But blood red color won't fade in time
You can hide it
You can fight it
Those red stains of love will remind your heart now

I'm having a hard time understanding your needs
When I look into your eyes
I see you want me to put up or shut up
What if I did
Could you leave without that style

You keep biting the hands that feeds
When I look into your eyes
I see you want to eat up, but still throw up
Would your heart forbid
But stand still for a while

You can hide it
You can fight it
But blood red color won't fade in time
You can hide it
You can fight it
Those red stains of love will remind your heart now

This condition won't go away
From here on you have a choice

    General CommentIt is about someone who believes in God but hasnt acted on that belief.
    The 'sun' represents God, the person likes being 'warmed' by the sun, but only wants a tan...like saying they like God as long as He doesnt get in the way of their lives. A bit like how people thank God for awards, but then the rest of the time live against God's morals.

    But he is saying that His sacrifice will never fade, even if you ignore it. It's still there, it still happened.

    General CommentOk, now the two religious guys could be right, but I am not sure if this band is extremely religious or anything. What Label are they signed to? Anyway listening to the song and analyzing the lyrics, I may take it down a notch, but keep a similiar interpretation.

    I think this song applies to politicians with voters, Teenagers with parents, Church goers with Jesus, and almost any type of relationship like that. It is about how we always want the good part of a relationship,
    "get a tan and put shades after staring at the sun" also "You keep biting the hand that feeds you" also "I am having a hard time understanding your needs" Etc...

    So basically you can hide the fact that you only want the good parts and pretend or you can also fight it, but in the end the blood of "hurting" somebody will always catch up to you and you'll remember that relationships don't work that way. I really think this song can apply to any relationship and is meant to apply to all forms!

    General Commentwell this band is extremly religous. they where originally on solid state records which was an all christian band record label, they tour with other christian bands, they say their a christian band on stage, and their lyrics are obviously christian oriented.
    and if you pay attention to this song you can tell this is about the sacrafice of jesus. Its plain to see.

    General CommentThe song is really up to interpretation, but you have to give evidence to support your claim, drkshadow. the blood thing you described as when you hurt somebody it catches up to you. but what about the line "those red stains of love will remind your heart now"? I'm not saying you're wrong, but support your claim. to me, this song is definitely without a doubt about the blood that Jesus had to shed, and the choice that every single person has to make.
