You say that I'm the one
Call me the chosen son
It's all as good as done
The choice is mine to make

But I've lived enough to see
That nothin' comes for free
So how can you prove to me
It's worth the chance I'll take

Yeah you can talk the talk
But can you show me that you're able
When you wanna walk the walk
That you can bring it to the table

I'll believe it when I see it
Can't just say it, got to be it
Who you are and claim to be
Don't always seem the same to me
Yeah it's more than empty words
That we've all already heard
You say you can guarantee it
I'll believe it when I see it
Yeah

A time or two before
When I've walked through your door
I've expected so much more
But back then I was blind

Now I know your kinda tricks
I've seen your politics
So I won't be so quick
To let you change my mind

You think you can make a promise
And expect me to believe
Well call me a doubting Tomas
But I'm stickin' to my creed

I'll believe it when I see it
Can't just say it, got to be it
Who you are and claim to be
Don't always seem the same to me
Cause it's more than empty words
That we've all already heard
You say you can guarantee it
I'll believe it when I see it
Yeah

Oh yeah

You think you can make a promise
And expect me to believe
Well call me a doubting Tomas
But I'm stickin' to my creed

I'll believe it when I see it
Can't just say it, got to be it
What you are and claim to be
Don't always seem the same to me
Yeah it's more than empty words
That we've all already heard
You think you can guarantee it
I'll believe it when I see it

I'll believe it when I see it
Can't just say it, got to be it
Who you are and claim to be
Don't always seem the same to me
Yeah it's more than empty words
That we've all already heard
You think you can guarantee it
I'll believe it when I see it
When I see it, yeah

Yeah you gotta show me
Oh yeah
Oh you gotta show me
