FAITH

And the way that you thought
Is the way that you look
You say your love will never change
And you say that it's like you know that it's true
Makes everything alright And you say that it's right When you know that you'll wait By the side of the wall Where you always will take Just one more go Just one more go You can handle you You can handle you And the way you'll say and I know that you won't Everyday you look at me She looks once, looks twice... and thinks it over She looks once, looks twice... to think it over You'll know You'll know You'll know
Robert Smith dedicated Faith with extra lyrics to all the fans who signed the petition...
