Lyric

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.

          I have bargained, I have begged, tried out faith for size.
          I was getting nothing. Silence. No replies.
          You became my backdoor. He hears you when you pray.
          I can see He’s chosen you, while I’ve been turned away.

      Low on gas, low on drive, I don’t live, I just survive.
      It’s too bad, wish I had faith of my own
      He is your reality, but he’s never chosen me
      Grieves me so, I have no faith of my own
      … I wish I could believe like you do.
