  • Maybe I
    Tell you that it's no big deal
    Maybe I can aim this high
    Or maybe I could eat my words

    You're not same, not the same, you're not the same
    Not the same, you're not the same, not the same
    You're not same, not the same

    I believe, I believe
    And tell myself to think forward
    I will show I believe
    And I hold you up and know that you're all I see in the light
    And never do what I used to

    Maybe you
    Could tell 'em that you stayed the course
    Maybe I could tear my view
    Or maybe I should eat my words

    You're not same, not the same, you're not the same
    Not the same, you're not the same, not the same
    You're not same, not the same

    I believe, I believe
    And tell myself to think forward
    I will show I believe
    And I hold you up and know that you're all I see in the light
    And never do what I used to
    And never do what I used to

    Keep you away from the down side of me
    You can keep me a drip of the light that you see
    I believe that you're all that you said you would be
    If I keep you away from the down side of me
    You can keep me a drip of the light that you see (only if I could see)
    I believe that you're all that you said you would be (only if you could see)

    If I keep you away from the down side of me (Only if I could see)
    You can keep me a drip of the light that you see (Only if I could see)
    I believe that you're all that you said you would be (Only if I could see)

    If I keep you away from the down side of me (Only if I could see)
    You can keep me a drip of the light that you see (Only if I could see)
    I believe that you're all that you said you would be (Only if I could see)

    You can wrap up your hopes and release them to me (Only if I could see)
    You can keep me a drip of the light that you see (Only if I could see)
    I'll believe that you're all that you said you would be
    You would be
    You would be
    You would be

    I believe, I believe
    And tell myself to think forward
    I will show I believe
    And I hold you up and know that you're all I see in the light
    All I see

    And I believe, I believe
    And tell myself to think forward
    I will show I believe
    And I hold you up and know that you're all I see in the light
    And never do what I used to
    And never do what I used to Writer/s: IAIN ANDREW COOK, LAUREN EVE MAYBERRY, MARTIN CLIFFORD DOHERTY
