Faith

(Steve Simpson)
Misty and I took a 6-week class at church on how to have a faith-based marriage. One week our assignment was to write each other a love letter. Instead of a letter, I wrote this song.
Many times you’ve watched me jump right off this cliff,
And every time I crawl back and promise you this,
I won’t do that again,
But then I do.

And now you’re here beside me way up on the brink,
You tie your love around me and you don’t even think,
You just tie the other end,
Around you.

‘Cause when the world tells you to run and play it safe,
In your eyes I find all I’ve needed ....faith.

A ship without an anchor, a tree without a root,
And every little breeze pulled me farther from the truth,
At the mercy of the winds,
Of doubt.

I saw you at a distance, with sorrow on all sides,
But joy was on your face, and there was something in your eyes,
And I knew what I had been,
Without.

‘Cause when the world told me that God was a charade,
In your eyes I found all I needed....faith.

Your faith in me, your faith in God, pulled me through,
Now there’s something God and I will always have in you....faith, faith.

You tie your love around me and you don’t even think....faith,
But joy was on your face, and there was something in your eyes....faith,
What God and I will always have in you....faith, faith.
