Song title: Leap of faith


Leap of faith

All over the world the rain was pourin’
I was scratchin’ where it itched
Oh heartbreak and despair got nothing but boring
So I grapped you baby like a wild pitch

It takes a leap of faith to get things going
It takes a leap of faith you gotta show some guts
It takes a leap of faith to get things going
In your heart you must trust

Now your legs were heaven your breasts were the altar
Your body was the holy land
You shouted “jump” but my heart faltered
You laughed and said “Baby don’t you understand?”

It takes a leap of faith to get things going
It takes a leap of faith you gotta show some guts
It takes a leap of faith to get things going
In your heart you must trust

Now you were the Red Sea I was Moses
I kissed you and slipped into a bed of roses
The waters parted and love rushed inside
I was Jesus’ son sanctified

Tonight the moon’s looking young but I’m feelin’ younger
‘Neath a veil of dreams sweet blessings rain
Honey I can feel the first breeze of summer
And in your love I’m born again

It takes a leap of faith to get things going
It takes a leap of faith you gotta show some guts
It takes a leap of faith to get things going
In your heart you must trust.
