Lyrics

Faith of My Own

Written By: Matt Roberts

True souls live long lives
Dreamers don't die
Mother holds her child
She sings gentle as can be
Tear Drops paint my face
Angels watchin' over me

This world is like no other world
Have you ever felt-
the love this life can bring

You'll see shooting stars
You'll feel laughter
Mother loves her son
Daughter holds her father's thumb

(guitar solo)

This world is like no other world
Have you ever felt
the love this life can bring

My faith is this world of ours

Angels watchin' from the sky
Watchin' from the sky
whisperin' lullaby

This faith is my own
