My Faith In You

Album: Just as I Am (2014)
  • Yeah, this world will turn its back
    When you find yours against that wall
    Just watch it as it keeps on spinning
    Just like there's nothing wrong.
    That's why I'm thumbing through these pages
    They say the answers are in red
    And I believe they're in there somewhere
    I just haven't found 'em yet
    It's the only hope that I got left

    'Cause I could stand to lose my faith in
    Friends that come and go
    Yeah, they'll be there when you need them,
    They say that when you don't
    I could give up on my heroes
    Could let myself down, too
    But what would I do
    If I lost my faith in you?
    My faith in you!

    You know I've learned through all these stories
    All about the pain you felt
    And I know you did all that for me
    And I'm still asking you for help
    'Cause Lord I just can't help myself!

    I could stand to lose my faith in
    Friends that come and go
    Yeah, they'll be there when you need them,
    They say that when you don't
    I could give up on my heroes
    Could let myself down, too
    But what would I do
    If I lost my faith in you?
    My faith in you

    'Cause I've been beaten, I've been broken
    I've been dangerously bruised
    And Lord, I never would have made it
    If I'd of lost my faith in you
    If I'd lost my faith in you

    Know you always got my back
    And I don't know why
    It feels like I deserve it
    For a hell raiser like me
    To have a safe place to land
    Can't thank you enough,
    You saved my life

    I will never lose my faith in you, oh, oh
    My faith in you
    I'll never lose my faith in you Writer/s: BRANTLEY KEITH GILBERT, JEREMY SPILLMAN
