Yeah, Yeah, Yeah (Got Faith Like A Butterfly's Wings)

from by Bill Mallonee & Vigilantes of Love/WPA



words/music: bill mallonee

I can tell you're not sure if you wanna go
and really that's most understandable
there's whole a lot involved in where you place your bet
and all these reports? They're a little suspect

taking a stab at matters of the heart
shooting in the proverbial dark
you gotta a prayer like the breath of a little baby
i wish i knew how you felt about me

yeah, yeah, yeah...not much i can bring
yeah, yeah, yeah...i got faith like a butterfly's wing
yeah, yeah, yeah...there's a world beneath your skin
For God's sake try to be your own best friend
yeah, yeah, yeah...

the autumn branches have been stripped bare
your breath it freezes & hangs in the air
the wind it howls over bleak terrain
if you make it back kid, well, you're never the same

searching for a secret on this path
always a little elusive just outta grasp
but the stones on the way have been worn smooth
so maybe that'll be some comfort to you
