Faith Hope Love Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. We Are Finding Who We Are (4:39)
Forever is a mountain we've yet to climb
Tears are a part of what is yet to leave behind
Strength in numbers, all you need is two
Everyone’s a winner, while still so many lose

We are finding who we are
We can see forever
We are finding who we are
We can see forever

The volume of emotion erupting in our souls
A quiet revelation quickly takes a hold
Patience is a virtue, but she won’t always wait
Dissension is the tension, it's what we've learned to hate

We are finding who we are
We can see forever
We are finding who we are
We can see forever

It was late September, I remember well
Memories of living the old man told the tale
Of rising and falling, of cruelty and kind
The thing the old man told me truly blew my mind

We are finding who we are
'Cause we can see forever
We are finding who we are
We can see forever

We are finding who we are
We can see forever
We are finding who we are
We can see forever
We are finding
We can see
We are finding
We can see

I know it’s been said so many times before
I once was blind, but now I see
And sometimes it just don’t make much sense
But I believe, yeah

Forever is a mountain we've yet to climb
Tears are a part of what is yet to leave behind
Strength in numbers, all you need is two
Everyone’s a winner, while still so many lose
The volume of emotion erupting in our souls
A quiet revelation quickly takes a hold
Patience is a virtue, but she won’t always wait
Dissension is the tension, it's what we've learned to hate
2. It's Love (4:36)
I sit in a chair
reflecting back upon my life
And I have so much yet to learn
and so much yet to see and do

It's love that holds it all together
I just had to let you know
That it's love that’s holding back the weather
And the same will let it go

I sit on the beach feeling the wind
Feeling your hand in all
There's a ship on the ocean
And I can't decide if I like it

It's love that holds it all together
I just had to let you know
That it's love that’s holding back the weather
And the same will let it go
(x3)
3. I'll Never Get Tired of You (3:46)
Simple words I have in mind
Nothing more between the lines
Having read that love is blind
If it’s true, then I will find

I'll never get tired of you
Oh no, no way
I'll never get tired of you
Oh no, oh yeah
Never, never
Never, never
I'll never get tired of you

From my heart I want to say,
but the words get in the way
Millions of ways to say it the same,
even though the feelings change

I'll never get tired of you
Oh no, no way
I'll never get tired of you
Oh no, oh yeah
Never, never
Never, never
I'll never get tired of you

I'll never get tired of you
Oh no, oh yeah
I'll never get tired of you
Oh no, oh yeah
Never, never
Never, never
I'll never get tired of you
(x3)

I'll never get tired of you
Oh no, oh yeah
Never, never
Never, never
4. Fine Art of Friendship (4:20)
I think back to the time when I wouldn’t drink wine
And they taught me right and wrong and black and white
Like death and the grave, some things never change
And I'll never let it rest until I die

The fine art of friendship
Meaning of love
Understanding
Growing old

I want to love someone special 'till death do us part
To have one and need no other
Sometimes I cry stumbling through my youth
'Cause I've loved so much, yet so little

The fine art of friendship
Meaning of love
Understanding
Growing old
(x2)

I think back to the time when I wouldn’t drink wine
And they taught me right and wrong and black and white
Like death and the grave, she never changed
I'll never let it rest until I die
5. Mr. Wilson (3:38)
Hey Mr. Wilson
I'm glad to shake your hand
And it's nice to see you too
And yes, I understand

That I'm not to take it personal
Although we look like people
and it could be my son on the chopping block
But I'm sure he’ll understand

You're at the table
and you seem nice enough
(Called his daddy, he was maddy
He came and took my ball and batty)
I just can't figure
Are you for real or not?
(Called me brother, sister, mother
Shook my hand, now calls me Sue)

And I'm not to take it personal
Although we look like people
And it could be my wife on the chopping block
But I'm sure she'll understand
I’m sure we’ll understand

And I’m not to take you personal
Although we look like people
And it could be my head on the chopping block
But I'm sure I’ll understand
I’m sure we’ll understand
No, we don’t understand

Hey, Mr. Wilson
Do what you have to do
(Lay the pipe, the apple's ripe
I'm going to Japan)
6. Moanjam (6:05)
I sing this song because of you
Because of you
I sing this song because of you
You’re the story
It’s you
It’s you

What could I say? What should I do?
Oh, for you
What can I say? What should I do? Oh
You're the glory
It’s you
It’s you
It’s you
It’s you

I sing this song because of you
Because of you
What could I do?
What should I do?
Should I
Should I do
In the end
It’s you
It’s you
It’s you
It’s you
7. Six Broken Soldiers (3:33)
I don’t care if you’re sick
What can I possibly do
with an American library
and a contract on you?

Got six broken soldiers in the trunk of my car
Two of them speak, four go to bars
Rods in the closet, a six shooter in hand
A caged up gorilla and three local bands

Fluently the parrot speaks
Six languages not known to men
Sixpence and a quarter
as the audience he scans

Got six broken soldiers in the trunk of my car
Two of them speak, four go to bars
Rods in the closet, a six shooter in hand
A caged up gorilla and three local bands
Six broken soldiers in the trunk of my car
Two of them speak, four go to bars
Rods in the closet, a six shooter in hand
A caged up gorilla and three local bands
8. I Can't Help It (3:52)
A feeling welling up inside
that seems to grip my soul
A never-ending need
as far back as my mind can go

But I just can’t help it
I just can’t help it
I just can’t help it
I can’t help it

A gate flies open wide
A momentary river flow
Then back to scrutinizing
Watch to see the water slow

But I just can’t help it
I just can’t help it
I just can’t help it
I can’t help it
I just can’t help it
I just can’t help it
I just can’t help it
I can’t help it

And then a mark is left
The feeling of some type of relief
And then the laughter comes,
reinforcing my belief

I just can’t help it
I just can’t help it
I just can’t help it
I can’t help it
(x4)
9. Talk to You (4:36)
Early in the morning, I hear my neighbor’s stereo
The telephone should start ringing as usual
I listen to my answering machine screening all my calls
Solicitors, wrong numbers, and some I just don’t know

I don’t know what to say,
but how are you today?

I mailed your letter the other day, but it’s got so far to go
Someone backed into my car, it has a dent in the door
Now I can’t stand eating breakfast early in the morning
Now there's someone knocking at my door
It’s a friend who’s getting married
I hope this one lasts longer than the one before

I don’t know what to say,
but how are you today?

I got the blues this morning
Oh, trying to make it through
To live and to love you sometimes suffer
My neighbor called it paying dues

Another day just a fading memory flashes across my eyes
Here and there, Happy said, “Oh Lord, just got to make it rhyme”
Nothing much to tell you,
but there's so much on my mind
Guess I'll put this pencil down
“Sincerely, your friend”

I don’t know what to say,
but how are you today?
I don’t know what to say,
but how are you today?
10. Everywhere I Go (3:53)
I’ve been in tears
I’ve been the clown
I’ve had my doubts
What if I'm wrong?
I've been in love
Then maybe not
I crossed my heart
and then forgot

Everywhere I go, I see You there

I read the stories
that You died
I turned the page
You were alive
With hope and love
And mostly faith
One day I'll see You
face to face

Everywhere I go, I see You there
Everywhere I go, I see You there

Everywhere I go, I see You there
Everywhere I go, I see You there

Everywhere I go, I see You
Everywhere I go, I see You
Everywhere I go, I see You
Everywhere I go, I see You
11. We Were Born to Be Loved (4:51)
I could shout from a rooftop how I really feel
Do you really want to know? Do you really care?
I could silently scream so you never hear

Somebody said you must rise above it all
We were born to be loved

How the meaning changes when the screaming hits your ears
Do you really? Do you really want to know?
Can you count the reasons why we have so many fears?

Somebody said you must rise above it all
We were born to be loved
Somebody said read the writing on the wall
We were born to be loved

A big heart, lonely eyes
A child plays with toys too soon to realize
To stop playing take it all inside
All he wanted was love
He remembers how well nobody cared
He was alone with everybody there
Took a chance and got outta there
All he wanted was love
The mouth of the fool was a whip on his back
He's got the scars to prove it
A broken heart a matter of fact
But he knows how to use it
Happy endings are not just for TV
Broken hearts
Don’t lose one piece of the puzzle
And the Beatles said “all you need is love”

I could point the finger, but there's too much inside here
12. Faith Hope Love (9:21)
We've all seen the evil of this world
and we feel so helpless with all the lies
Everyone believes somewhere there's love
Darkness is just a speck in the light

We are children trapped in time
We are strong
You see the Word brings no lies
I believe it has a name
I believe He is alive

Bad luck, we hide it oh so well
Just enough to tell you I can’t see my eyes are blind
If I look then surely I will find
If I learn my lessons when I'm older, I'll be wise

We are children trapped in time
We are strong
You see the Word brings no lies
I believe it has a name
I believe He is alive
(x2)

Listen to me very closely
There is more heaven than hell
(x7)

Faith hope love (x12)

We've all seen the evil of this world
and we feel so helpless with all the lies
Everyone believes somewhere there's love
Darkness is just a speck in the light

We are children trapped in time
We are strong
You see the Word brings no lies
I believe it has a name
I believe He is alive

Listen to me very closely
There is more heaven than hell
(x6)

Faith hope love (x10)
Everyone believes somewhere there's love
We’ve all seen it
We’ve all seen it
Faith hope love
Faith hope love
13. Legal Kill (4:42)
I only know what I believe
The rest seems so absurd to me
I close my eyes so I can’t see
But the picture just gets clearer everyday

I read somewhere to learn is to remember
And I've learned we all forgot
There was peace in her before,
but that was yesterday

But I can see
the beauty that is here for me
(I can feel
Life is always real
No big deal)
The chance to live and walk free
from a legal kill

I know your side so very well
It makes no sense that I can tell
The smell of hell is what I smell
And you hand it out with handshakes everyday

I have trouble with the persons with the signs
But I feel the need to make my own
Yes, there's two ways to be,
and truth does not depend on me

But I can feel
the fight for life is always real
(I can see
Beauty here for me
Living free)
I can’t believe it's no big deal
It’s a legal kill

But I can feel
the fight for life is always real
(I can see
Beauty here for me
Living free)
And I can’t believe it's no big deal
It’s a legal kill
And I can see
the beauty that is here for me
(I can feel
Life is always real
No big deal)
A chance to live and walk free
from a legal kill

Glory to the newborn
