firm believer lyrics – the spill canvas

firm believer

i used to be a firm believer
of heart ache
until i woke to find the st*tches
mending the break.
and if it’s all the same to them
chalk up another song, and let me be healed again.

i used to be a strong supporter
in every way.
optimism was my creed,
every day
but as the path began to wind
a reason for a smile was getting
so much harder to find

all this love
it doesn’t mean a thing
when it’s just yours…that i want
all this love, it don’t mean a thing
i’m spread so thin
i need something to believe in.

i used to be a firm believer
of the greater good
until i saw the sad parade of hollywood
what a shame that we can’t see
the extent of what we know
comes from magazines or some kind of screen

all this love
it doesn’t mean a thing
when it’s just yours…that i want
all this love, it don’t mean a thing
i’m spread so thin
i need something to believe in.

i just can’t do this all alone
i could use a hand
all my hope, it turned to stone,
i think you understand…..

all this love
it doesn’t mean a thing
when it’s just yours…that i want
all this love, it don’t mean a thing
i’m spread so thin
i need something to believe in.

all this love
it doesn’t mean a thing
when it’s just yours…i want
all this love, it don’t mean a thing
i’m spread so thin
i need something to believe in.
