Lyrics

Gotta Believe

Written By: Julie Foldesi

If you were mine you’d love me before now
And if you were wise, you’d have given in
And if you were bitter, you never told me
And if I knew you were a quitter, I still would have believed
Cuz, hey, it’s my life, and in my life, I’ve gotta believe somebody is waiting for me
Hey, it’s my life, and in my life, I’ve gotta believe somebody is waiting for me.

If you ask me once more the way you did before
You know just what I’ll do; I’ll have to walk out that door
But if you complete me, complete me
I’ll let you in, but only discreetly
Cuz, hey, it’s my life, and in my life, I’ve gotta believe somebody is waiting for me
Hey, it’s my life, and in my life, I’ve gotta believe somebody is waiting for me.

I’m aching; I’m bleeding; I’m wanting; you’re fleeting
I’m tired of abandonment and hoping for heaven sent
Open just slightly, but praying this nightly
God make me content. God make me content.
Cuz, hey, it’s my life, and in my life, I’ve gotta believe somebody is waiting for me
Hey, it’s my life, and in my life, I’ve gotta believe somebody is waiting for me.

THIS PART OF TOWN

Wine is stickin’ on me like a newfound friend
Pain is going through me like a fire
Well I’m surely in my prime cuz I been kicked in my behind
And I put romance on the bottom rung

You think that it’s so easy cuz you’ve been here awhile
You think that love is simple pure and wild
Well I love you baby yes I do, but I cannot do that dance with you
Cuz I just got to town and lost my pride.

Cuz I just came around to this part of town
I just came around to this life
Oh, I just got a taste of where I am bound
No distraction’s gonna take me down

I want it light and easy; someone’s broken my heart
I’m wantin’ to be free, don’t really even want to start
Well you think love could be different if I’m doin’ it with you
Well that may be true, but babe I need some time

Cuz I just came around to this part of town
I just came around to this life
Well, I just got a taste of where I am bound
No distraction’s gonna take me down

When you love me so it’s like a lovin’ drug
But when you worry about me, I’m gonna fly

(chorus)
