The Skeptic

Original and similar lyrics
Once there was a man A good and honest man He came home one day to his loving family He said you’ll never believe We have got to leave Daddy wants to make a toast We’re heading out for the west coast Driving US 1 Counting the stars and sun Turns to his wife and says “How could I of believed em I got the call today There’s no job waiting for me” He was fooled by the man and the thought of wind rushing through the palm trees Now I see holes in Noah’s Arc I see dirt in the reservoir I see struggle in the architecture I see sorrow in the family picture But I see you and it’s enough I’m a skeptic but I see love I see love, yeah Once there was a woman A young and trusting woman She believed in the institution The marriage of revolution She was an old school girl From the old school world But the man that she chose Had other ideas I suppose Could have been an easy street Could have been a dream complete Instead it was a mournful day Had to turn her love away And give it to her boy and girl Pieces of her broken world All the things that he took She got back from her kids with one look Now I see holes in Noah’s Arc I see dirt in the reservoir I see struggle in the architecture I see sorrow in the family picture I see you and it’s enough Yeah, I’m a skeptic but I see love I see love, yeah When it all goes wrong When I’m down and out When the bad things happen And I just can’t count When the hammer falls And the clock strikes two When I’m the only one I think of you I’m a young believer With a cranked receiver I live without a home Me and my busted phone I got no guarantees I got no proof to see This life is a game that I play I could win, I could lose, I could fade away Now I see holes in Noah’s Arc I see dirt in the reservoir I see struggle in the architecture I see sorrow in the family picture I see you and it’s enough Yeah, I’m a skeptic but I see love I see love Yeah, I see love Yeah, I see love And it’s enough It’s enough It’s enough Ooooh It’s enough

Long Distance Love

TAMIA "A Nu Day"
