Bret Michaels – Something To Believe In lyrics

Well, I see him on the TV
He preaching 'bout the promised land
He tells me believe on Jesus
Steal the money from my hand
Some say he was a good man
But Lord, I think he sinned

One, two, three

Twenty-two years of mental tears
Cries a suicidal Vietnam vet
Who fought a losing war on a foreign shore
Find his country didn't want him back

Their bullets took his best friends in Saigon
Our lawyers took his wife, his kids, no regrets
In time I don't remember, Lord and a war he can't forget
He cried, "Forgive me for what I've done there
I never meant those things I did"

And give me something to believe in
If there's a Lord above
Yeah, give me something to believe in
Oh, Lord arise

My best friend died a lonely man
In some Palm Springs hotel room
I got the call last Christmas Eve
And they told me the news

I tried all night not to break down and cry
But the tears rolled down my face
I felt so cold and empty, Lord
Like a lost soul out of place
The mirror, mirror that's on the wall
See the smile, it fade again

Give me something to believe in
If there's a Lord above
Yeah, give me something to believe in
Oh, Lord arise

Sometimes I wish to God I didn't know now
The things I didn't know then
Road, you gotta take me home

I drive by the homeless
Sleeping on a cold dark street
Like bodies in an open grave
Underneath the broken old neon sign
That used to read ‘Jesus Saves’

A mile away live the rich folk
And I see how they're living it up
While the poor, they eat from hand to mouth
The rich drinking from a golden cup
And it just makes me wonder
Why so many lose, so few win

Give me something to believe in
If there's a Lord above
Yeah, give me something to believe in
Oh, Lord arise

Yeah, give me something to believe in
Oh, Lord arise
Yeah, give me something to believe in
Oh, Lord, oh Lord arise

Yeah, give me something to believe in
Oh, Lord, oh Lord arise
Yeah, give me something to believe in
Oh, Lord, I say sweet Jesus

Sometimes I wished to God I didn't know now
The things I didn't know then, yeah
And give me something to believe in, yeah
