Song for the Day

Faith, by Shawn Mullins
(off the album 9th Ward Pickin’ Parlor)

Pain, come no more
Don’t you come knockin’ on my door
Love, dry your tears
You have lived a life way beyond your years

And faith, when you’re gone
All my demons and my devils
they do me wrong
And faith, let your light shine through
Let a ray of hope surround me
Just don’t think I can make it without you

Hey faith, don’t let me down
Let me know when I come back
she’ll be around
‘Cause I’ve been burned, a time or two
If she left me Lord, I don’t know what I’d do

And faith, when you’re gone
All my demons and my devils
they do me oh so wrong
And faith, let your light shine through
You let a ray of hope surround me
Just don’t think I can make it without you

In the morning you know
I wake up with the dawn
Everyday, there’s a way
You know I got to carry on
To know the way
and take the road of right and wrong
And keep faith in my heart
Just keep faith in your heart

Pain, come no more
Don’t you come knockin’ on my door
Love, please be strong
Cause I need the peace of mind
to carry on
And faith, when you’re gone
All my devils, all my demons
You know, the do me wrong
And faith, you let your light shine true
You let a ray of hope surround me
You came back home and found me
Searching for the love I never knew
