I went out walking tonight
Cuz I need to
Everything that I had
I’m waiting on
Gave ‘til I gave all I could
And kept a little
Finding it hard to believe
Everything’s gone
Gone
Gone

How am I gonna run back home
With a heart so heavy
How am I gonna make my way
When I can’t find the road
How am I gonna beat this pain
When I can’t see how deep it goes
Heaven knows but I don’t

Faith is a backless design
But I still choose it
I’ve followed it all of the time
But carry on
I used to live by the line
As good as a circle
What does it do for me know
Everything’s gone
Gone
Gone

Chorus

Interlude

So how am I gonna run back home
With a heart so heavy
How am I gonna make my way
When I can’t find the road
How am I gonna beat this pain
When I can’t see how deep it goes
Heaven knows but I don’t

I still believe love
I still believe love
I do I do
I still believe love
I still believe love…

    General CommentNO COMMENTS? Blasphemy I tell you.

    The conviction and emotion in his voice (at least in my recording) is simply heart-wrenching. But I suppose the meaning of the song is pretty concrete.

    General Commentjohn starts this song by saying " this is for anyone who's still being hurt form last weekend"
    you guys are right, its sacrilegious to even comment about this song.
    john can mend heart of anybody with his emotive voice and lyrics.
    keep on writing song like these john
    after all we need a glue to stitch our heart together.
    john ended the song by saying " i still believe in love" and for me it seemed as if he broke
    down and was beginning to cry.
    john you are GOD for me.

    General Comment There's been about one comment per year for this song. Interesting, I guess.

    Crazy song... Definitely about being hurt from memories of "That One Night"...

    General CommentThis song is so great. I love the guitarin this song. It compliments the lyrics so well. I just wish John would record this in a studio. Yet, at the same time, maybe the song would lose its passion....

    Now, I think this song is about more than mending a broken heart. I think its about hope more than anything. "Faith is a backless design, But I still choose it" .. this line just shows that even though a situation is impossible, faith and hope is the only option than he'll choose...

    I hope the new album (which probably will be a fail) has atleast one song on it about something real, and not just marijuana haha.
