leap of faith lyrics – bruce springsteen

all over the world the rain was pourin
i was scratchin where it itched
oh heartbreak and despair got nothing but boring
so i grabbed you baby like a wild pitch

it takes a leap of faith to get things going
it takes a leap of faith you gotta show some guts
it takes a leap of faith to get things going
in your heart you must trust

now your legs were heaven your br**sts were the altar
your body was the holy land
you shouted jump but my heart faltered
you laughed and said baby don’t you understand?

it takes a leap of faith to get things going
it takes a leap of faith you gotta show some guts
it takes a leap of faith to get things going
in your heart you must trust

now you were the red sea i was moses
i kissed you and slipped into a bed of roses
the waters parted and love rushed inside
i was jesus son sanctified

tonight the moons looking young but im feelin younger
neath a veil of dreams sweet blessings rain
honey i can feel the first breeze of summer
and in your love im born again

it takes a leap of faith to get things going
it takes a leap of faith you gotta show some guts
it takes a leap of faith to get things going
in your heart you must trust
