Crisis of Faith

She left the halfway house
'Cuz she was already all the way there
She'd saved a thousand souls in her mind
Except her own, but she didn't care
She didn’t cry when they came to collect
She never copped to being scared
She's got a crisis of faith
She hasn't got a prayer
She hasn't got a prayer

He was lost as an actor in L.A
No one ever found him there
The only way he could cut the pain
Was to crawl into a bottle and stay there
In all those years of seeing life through the bottom of a glass
Nothing ever got more clear
He's got a crisis of faith
He hasn't got a prayer
He hasn't got a prayer

Be brave in your travels
Down the long, hard road
Hold on if your dreams unravel
Till the love that you pray for comes known
If your faith in love, your faith in love
If your faith in love comes slow

She never knew her mother
She knew her father never cared
She covered her ears to the thunder
When lightening struck out of nowhere
She cried all night through the fighting
Till sweet morning came, so fair
She's got a crisis of faith
She hasn't got a prayer
She hasn't got a prayer

He didn't have the home he dreamed of
He'd looked for it everywhere
Finally moved in to live in the damage
He’d waited twenty-five years to repair
He laughed if you spoke about hope
She had a sense of humor about her despair
They had a crisis of faith
They didn't have a prayer
They didn't have a prayer

Be brave in your travels
Down the long, hard road
Hold on if your dreams unravel
Till the love that you pray for comes known
If your faith in love, your faith in love
If your faith in love comes slow

He'd felt that way since he could remember
An invited but unwanted guest
In all the time he'd been alive
He never felt like all the rest
His demons had kept him from climbing
It'd been years since he pretended to care
He had a crisis of faith
He never had a prayer
He never had a prayer

Her life wasn't shaped like she dreamed it
A round peg in a world that was square
When they met she looked deep into his eyes
She was met with a desolate stare
She knew then where he was going
All he knew was he'd come from nowhere
He had a crisis of faith
She offered him a prayer
She offered him a prayer
