Mother mother tell your children That their time has just begun I have suffered for my anger There are wars that can't be won
 Father father please believe me
I am laying down my guns
I am broken like an arrow Forgive me Forgive your wayward son
 Everybody needs somebody to love
(mother, mother) Everybody needs somebody to hate
(please believe me)
Everybody's bitching 'cause they can't get enough And it's hard to hold on
When there's no one to lean on

Faith: you know you're gonna live thru the rain
Lord you got to keep the faith Faith: don't let your love turn to hate Right now we got to
Keep the faith Keep the faith Keep the faith Lord we got to keep the faith 
Tell me baby when I hurt you
Do you keep it all inside Do you tell me al's forgiven And just hide behind your pride  Everybody needs somebody to love
(mother, father) Everybody needs somebody to hate
(please don't leave me)
Everybody's bleeding 'cause the times are tough Well it's hard to be strong When there's no one to dream on

Faith: you know you're gonna live thru the rain
Lord you got to keep the faith Now you know is not too late
Oh you got to keep the faith Faith: don't let your love turn to hate Right now we got to
Keep the faith Keep the faith Keep the faith Lord we got to keep the faith  Walking in the footsteps Of society's lies
I don't like what I see no more Sometimes I wish that I was blind Sometimes I wait forever 
To stand out in the rain
So no one sees me cryin' Trying to wash away the pain Mother father

There's things I've done I can't erase Every night we fall from grace 
It's hard with the world in yours face Trying to hold on, trying to hold on

Faith: you know you're gonna live thru the rain
Lord you got to keep the faith Faith: don't let your love turn to hate Right now we got to keep the faith Faith: now it's not too late
Try to hold on, trying to hold on
Keep the faith
