He goes to work in a brand new dawn
With the early morning sunrise
He's got his dream and he's holding on
It's getting harder every day

He loves a girl who speaks her mind
Don't always look at life the same way
Sharing truth that will heal in time

They want to believe something real
Still they're searching
They're keeping the faith in the heartland tonight

Time moves on as the fading town
And they struggle with the changes
The stores have closed, friends have moved away
Now it's hope that sees him through

The kids have gone but they'll see them all
At the Sunday congregation
Sharing dreams truth will heal in time

They want to believe something real
Still they're searching
They're keeping the faith in the heartland tonight
Ooh, it's words that divide them
It's love that defines them
They're keeping the faith in the heartland tonight
In our darkest hour, oh, we look to the sky
With a silent prayer
Believe that God's on our side
In a land where freedom rings
And where eagles fly
Ooh yeah, yeah

They want to believe something real
Still they're searching
They're keeping the faith in the heartland tonight
Yeah, it's words that divide them
It's love that defines them
They're keeping the faith in the heartland tonight

Ooh, I just want to believe it

Give me something to believe in
We all need something to believe in
In the heart tonight

Got faith
Got dreams
Yeah, we're keeping the faith alive

    General Commentthis is my favorite song off of the "Generations" CD.....it's so beautifully done and up beat in a way.....you've gotta keep your own faith alive....no matter what you believe in (and i am not talking religion thank you) you gotta keep it up....they're trying to say that in the story they weave into the song.....

    General CommentIt is also my favorite song off of Generations (and I didn't really like the version Pineda did for Revelation, to be honest), although Butterfly (She Flies Alone) is a close second for me personally. Definitely one of the better post-Perry Journey songs, in my opinion.
