if i ever lose my faith in you lyrics – sting

you could say i lost my faith in science and progress
you could say i lost my belief in the holy church
you could say i lost my sense of direction
you could say all of this and worse but

if i ever lose my faith in you
there’d be nothing left for me to do

some would say i was a lost man in a lost world
you could say i lost my faith in the people on tv
you could say i’d lost my belief in our politicians
they all seemed like game show hosts to me

if i ever lose my faith in you
there’d be nothing left for me to do

i could be lost inside their lies without a trace
but every time i close my eyes i see your face

i never saw no miracle of science
that didn’t go from a blessing to a curse
i never saw no military solution
that didn’t always end up as something worse but
let me say this first

if i ever lose my faith in you
there’d be nothing left for me to do
