Faithful
 
(Words and Music by Rick Springfield)


I know I hurt you 
I broke your little heart 
and I'd give anything to undo the pain
You can always run for shelter
but you can't ever stop the rain 
I felt so low and she looked good that night 
I had a bad desire in my head
My soul was sending out an SOS. 
Now you finally get the message it sent
And though your little girl schemes
and all your hopes and dreams

and your precious faith has been shaken 
And all the things you thought 
That wedding vow had bought
were just there to be taken
I was lying in a bed that night 
weaving lies to cover my sin
There's so much about us that's still so right
can we burn it down and start it again? 
I'll be your faithful one
Yea, I will not falter
I swear and cross my heart
lay my soul at the alter 
We talk till late at night 
Always ends with a fight 
and you say I gave away something sacred
I storm out one more time
You slam the door and cry 
and we're both left scared and nekkid 
I want you back
I want to heal that wound
but I'm not sure that's enough 
And you're only sure that right now 
what you want are no more hard lessons in love
I'll be your faithful one
Yea, I will not falter
I swear and cross my heart
lay my soul at the alter
Nobody could take your place in my
soul
but you know what I think
I can
take you to water
but I can't make you drink 
There is no happy  ever after 
It's a lie
they tell the children at night
You sleep with the enemy in love and war 
but you never surrender the fight
I'll be your faithful one
Yea, I will not falter
I swear and cross my heart
lay my soul at the alter
I'll be your faithful one 
yea, I will not falter
I swear and cross my heart

Lay my soul at the alter
