BELIEVER
[E. Maguire]
______________________________

I could be a rider, riding
I could be a runaway, a runaway
I could pray like a preacher, preaching
I could be making it easier, easy, easy, easy

Cos I try to fight the fire with fire
And I find that the only way, the only way
Was just to get higher and higher
Leaving all the loneliness, the lonely, if only

I’d seen the light of a thousand suns
Rising high above the sea
And I’d held the hand of a holy man
If only I believed
Believer

I could be taking it easier, easy
And making it right away, the right way
And never be the lonely, if only
And running like a rider, riding, a rider, riding

Cos I could be counted, not counting
And I could run and hide away, hide away
I try to be wanted and wanting
To keep away the loneliness, the lonely, if only

I’d seen the light of a thousand suns
Rising high above the sea
And I’d held the hand of a holy man
If only I believed

That I‘ve seen the light of a thousand suns
Rising high above the sea
And I’ve held the hand of a holy man
If only I believed
Believer
