I've been blessed with this curse
And it cuts up my insides and I wait for reprieve,
For a ghost, for a sign that it has passed.
But it begs, and it pleads and it will not be denied.
'Til it's free of this dust of this mystery we call heart
Won't turn back, be ashamed, 'til it's found itself a stage
Laid bare under the lights to face the cold hard stare.
Did you ever believe in me?

With two lungs full of air,
with a wavering voice and trembling hands.
Full of doubt, full of fear, full of reasons I should quit
Hang 'em up, get a job, give up this childish game.
Did you ever believe in me?

I have done the wrong thing,
I've inserted my foot into my mouth,
Played the fool, broken hearts, broke a promise to myself
My regrets are things I never did.
Did you ever believe in me?

Trying hard to strike a balance in the way I see myself,
Come across a happy thought, I'm going to store it on a shelf.
When the weight of all my sins sends me crashing to my knees
On the floor I cry aloud with this dark pathetic plea.
Will you ever believe in me?
It breaks me up inside to think of living life without you.
