Lyric

Amanda:   You’ve got a confidence that I can trust in.
                 Always a friend, I know you care for me.
                 My sense of self-belief needs some adjustin’.
                 How do you stand so strong, when I’m at sea?

                       Low on gas, low on drive, I don’t live, I just survive.
                       It’s too bad, wish I had faith of my own.
                       I just need to be whole, get my fear under control.
                       It’s too bad, I don’t have faith of my own.
                       … I wish I could believe.

                 You have a faith in God that I could do with.
                 I wish that I could trust in Him, like you.
                 I need a peace of mind, my head can’t screw with.
                 Then I’d not work so hard to see what’s true.

                       Low on gas, low on drive, I don’t live, I just survive.
                       It’s too bad, wish I had faith of my own.
                       Am I less than I could be? Is there something wrong with me?
                       I envy you ‘cause you do faith of your own.
                       … I wish I could believe.

                           When I was a little girl, my God was warm and kind,
                           But with every bump and bruise my faith was left behind.
                           I got disconnected. Don’t know where I went.
                           I withdrew, just out of view, for fear of punishment.

Claire:             Low on gas, low on drive, know that feeling, know that I’ve
                       Been there too before I knew faith of my own.
                       I am no special case, just a straggler in the race.
                       You’re not to blame. You can reclaim faith of your own.

Amanda:         … I wish I could believe like you do.
