keep your faith in me lyrics – dido

walking in today
feet in rags
no-one looks him in the eye
they stopped and stared
had him dancing on the edge
shouting “i can fly”

never thought he’d needed someone before
but it looked like he could die
spent his life thinking things would get better
he knows he’s running out of time

everybody thought he would jump for his life
everybody thought he was gone
so keep your faith in me
keep your faith in me
everybody thought he would jump for his life
everybody thought he was gone
so keep your faith in me
keep your faith in me

he turned around
this lonely man
and i saw his face in mine
eye to eye as we stopped to cry
coming closer to the line

reaching to a hand, he tries to understand his life
and sees this is not his time
fear had fallen from his face, temporary state of grace
place your hand on mine

everybody thought he would jump for his life
everybody thought he was gone
so keep your faith in me
keep your faith in me
everybody thought he would jump for his life
everybody thought he was gone
so keep your faith in me
keep your faith in me

keep your faith in me
keep your faith in me
keep your faith in me
keep your faith in me
