After my baby quit me
I wouldn't even go outside
When my friends tried to fix me up
I crawl under my bed and hide

I knew I was never gonna change my look
Till I got my [Incomprehensible] up to try
And when I went ahead and spread my wings
I found out that I could fly

Sometime, all it takes is a leap of faith
(Leap of faith)
Sometimes, all it takes is a leap of faith
(Leap of faith)

I had no way of knowing
What would come from our first kiss
It scares me now to think about
The good love that I might have missed

I was just tryin' to find some help
Tryin' to see myself as a survivor
I had to rise up from the ashes of love
And jump back into the fire

Sometime, all it takes is a leap of faith, oh yeah
(Leap of faith)
Sometimes, all it takes is a leap of faith
(Leap of faith)

Sometimes, you gotto believe
Before you see the proof
You can wait a lifetime
For one moment of truth

Sometimes, all it takes is a leap of faith
Yeah, oh yeah

You gotto believe
Before you see the proof
You can wait a lifetime
For one moment of truth

Oh yeah, sometimes, all it takes is a leap of faith
Sometimes, all it takes
(Leap of faith)
Sometimes, all it takes
(Leap of faith)

Sometimes, all it takes is a leap of faith, oh yes, it does
(Leap of faith)
Sometimes, all it takes is a leap of faith
(Leap of faith)

Oh, sometimes, all it takes
(Leap of faith)
Sometimes, all it takes is a leap of faith, oh yeah
(Leap of faith)

Sometimes, all it takes is a leap of faith, oh yes, it does
Sometimes, all it takes is a leap of faith
