  • So I was lost, go count the cost,
    Before you go to the Holland Road,
    With your heart like a stone you spared no time in lashing out,
    And I knew your pain and the effect of my shame, but you cut me down,
    You cut me down

    And I will not tell the thoughts of hell
    That carried me home from the Holland Road
    With my heart like a stone and I put up no fight
    To your callus mind, and from your corner you rose to cut me down,
    You cut me down

    So I hit my low, but little did I know that would not be the end,
    From the Holland Road well I rose and I rose, and I paid less time,
    To your callus mind, and I wished you well as you cut me down,
    You cut me down

    But I'll still believe though there's cracks you'll see,
    When I'm on my knees I'll still believe,
    And when I've hit the ground, neither lost nor found,
    If you believe in me I'll still believe

    And I'll still believe though there's cracks you'll see,
    When I'm on my knees I'll still believe,
    And when I've hit the ground, neither lost nor found,
    If you believe in me I'll still believe Writer/s: BENJAMIN WALTER DAVID LOVETT, EDWARD JAMES MILTON DWANE, MARCUS OLIVER JOHNSTONE MUMFORD, WINSTON AUBREY ALADAR MARSHALL
