Everybody's rushing around

Trying to keep a hold
On some piece of mine
All the time
And somebody's lookin' around
Tyin' to find
Something to believe in

All the things they promised
They're always lies

Well it's something
Oh it's something to believe in
You know it's something

Every little once in a while
You take a chance to win
On a turning card
But it may be hard
We could be fooled on the merry-go-round
But I'm trying to find
Something to believe in
To believe in
All the things they promised
You know they always lied


I've been willing and strong all along
Through chilling times
In a sea of heartbreak
Where you give and take
I won't give in to promises
Until I find something to believe in
To believe in
