Here’s a lyric to a song I’ve not yet recorded. The first verse came to me in a waking dream, which is unusual for me, so I wouldn’t be surprised if I purloined it subconciously from another song!
The Things I Believe (or “I Can See The Future Coming”)
I can see the future coming
From the corner of my eye
It is mysterious and elusive
Like the stars up in the sky
I can see the path before me
Like the shepherd leading sheep
I know we can get out of here
I’ve just got to believe
CHORUS
I believe we will overcome
The obstacles in our way
I believe what doesn’t kill us
Makes us stronger everyday
I believe that everything that happens
Is a lesson to be learnt
You don’t put your hand in the fire
Knowing it is going to get burnt
I can see the future coming
Like an uninvited guest
A portent of things to come
Another question in the test
I can see the time unravelling
Like the springs inside a watch
Tightly coiled, relentless
A vision of what we could have lost
CHORUS
I believe we will overcome
The obstacles in our way
I believe what doesn’t kill us
Makes us stronger everyday
I believe that everything that happens
Is a lesson to be learnt
You don’t put your hand in the fire
Knowing it is going to get burnt
God pays debts without money
On that I can depend
What comes around goes around
Karma’s going to get you in the end
Justice might be stupid
Justice sometimes might be blind
But I believe that you’ll get what you deserve
It will just take a little time
CHORUS
I believe we will overcome
The obstacles in our way
I believe what doesn’t kill us
Makes us stronger everyday
I believe that everything that happens
Is a lesson to be learnt
You don’t put your hand in the fire
Knowing it is going to get burnt
