Have Faith

Lyrics:

WESLEY

How did believing in something that’s supposed to be so good be twisted into something to hurt people so much?

 

MOTH

Because of selfishness or pride or fear of what they don’t understand. Believing in something even if you can’t see it or hold it, that’s faith. No one can tell you what it is or what it should be…or ever take it away.

 

WHEN YOU’RE LOST IN A BITTER WIND

HANDS CLUTCHED YOUR LIPS ARE NUMB

YOU SENSE A WARMTH BECAUSE YOU KNOW SOMEONE WILL COME

 

WHEREVER YOUR MOTHER IS

I KNOW SHE IS LOOKING FOR YOU

NO MATTER WHAT- YOU ARE HER SON.

I WOULD BE LOOKING TOO

 

I KNOW THAT SHE WILL LOVE YOU

NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE

WHEN SHE LOOKS TO YOU AGAIN

WHEN SHE RUNS TO YOU AGAIN

AND HAVE FAITH

 

WHEN YOU’VE RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN

TOO FAR TO TURN AROUND

YOU LIGHT THE DARK BECAUSE YOU STILL WANT TO BE FOUND

 

AND WHEN YOU FIND HER AND YOU WILL

SHE’LL REMEMBER WHAT WE SEE

A KIND, A STRONG, A BEAUTIFUL MAN.

(BUT, WESLEY,) WITHIN/IN YOURSELF YOU MUST BELIEVE

 

IF IN YOURSELF YOU CAN BELIEVE

YOU’LL NEVER BE APART

IF ONLY CHILD YOU BELIEVE

YOU’LL FEEL HER IN YOUR HEART

 

(WESLEY turns from MOTH, sitting on the stone. MOTH walks as WESLEY sits with his back to her)

 

WHEN COURAGE IS ALL THAT YOU HAVE

THOUGH WEARY FROM THE WAR

YOU’RE FILLED WITH HOPE BECAUSE YOU KNOW THERE’S SOMETHING MORE

 

WHEN THE HEAVENS REVEAL THEMSELVES

AND YOU’RE BLINDED FROM ABOVE

YOU’LL BE EMBRACED JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE SOMEONE TO LOVE!!!

 

I KNOW THAT SHE WILL LOVE YOU

NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE

WHEN SHE LOOKS TO YOU AGAIN

WHEN SHE RUNS TO YOU AGAIN

WHEN SHE SEES YOU AGAIN…

WHEN SHE HOLDS YOU AGAIN…

 

(WESLEY turns and falls into MOTH’S arms. Shocked, MOTH feels as if she is holding her son one last time)

 

AND HAVE FAITH

HAVE FAITH LEAD YOU HOME

 

A mother never gives up on her child.
