Somethin’ to Believe In

Verse 1

Life’s an open road
Every day a new adventure
Opportunity behind every door
But you always want more
You swallow your doubt
Can’t get outta bed
You’re never satisfied
Your tears just can’t be denied

PreChorus 1

I just really really hate it when you’re strugglin’
I just really really hate it when you’re in pain

Chorus 1

All I can do is tell you to fight it
And help you get the ship righted
I hope you know I’m never leavin’
I’ll always give you somethin’
Somethin’ to believe in

Verse 2

We get past the night
We’ve been here before
Sometimes we waste the good days
And we don’t want the same old clichés
Just be who you are
It’s what the world needs
And finding light isn’t easy
But I’ll always love you deeply

PreChorus 2

I just really really hate it when you’re strugglin’
I just really really hate it when you’re in pain

Chorus 2

All I can do is tell you to fight it
And help you get the ship righted
I hope you know I’m never leavin’
I’ll always give you somethin’
Somethin’ to believe in
Guitar Solo
Something to believe in

Chorus 3

All I can do is tell you to fight it
And I’ll always give you somethin’
To believe in

Chorus 4

And all we can do is tell you to fight it
And help you get the ship righted
I hope you know we’re never leavin’
We’ll always give you somethin’
Somethin’ to believe in
Somethin’ to believe, in
Somethin’ to believe, in
Somethin’ to believe in
