Verse 6

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 your face, trying to hold on, trying to hold on.

Chorus

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 try to hold on, trying to hold on

Faith! Keep the faith, Keep the faith try to hold on, trying to hold on
