"Have Faith in Me" as written by Thomas H Jr Denney, Alexander Thomas Shelnutt, Jeremy Wade Mckinnon, Neil S Westfall and Joshua Steven Woodard....
Have faith in me
'Cause there are things that I've seen I don't believe
So cling to what you know and never let go
You should know things aren't always what they seem

I said I'd never let you go, and I never did
I said I'd never let you fall and I always meant it
If you didn't have this chance then I never did
You'll always find me right there, again

I'm going crazy
'Cause there are things in the streets I don't believe
So we'll pretend it's alright and stay in for the night
What a world
I'll keep you safe here with me

I said I'd never let you go, and I never did
I said I'd never let you fall and I always meant it
If you didn't have this chance then I never did
You'll always find me right there, again

I said I'd never let you go, and I never did
I said I'd never let you fall and I always meant it
If you didn't have this chance then I never did
You'll always find me right there, again

They've got me on the outside, looking in
But I can't see at all
With the weight of the world on my shoulders,
They just wanna see me fall

They've got me on the outside, looking in
But I can't see at all
With the weight of the world on my shoulders,
They just wanna see me fall

Have faith in me

I said I'd never let you go, and I never did
I said I'd never let you fall and I always meant it
If you didn't have this chance then I never did
You'll always find me right there, again

I said I'd never let you go, and I never did
I said I'd never let you fall and I always meant it
If you didn't have this chance then I never did
You'll always find me right there, again

I said I'd never let you go, and I never did
I said I'd never let you go, and I never did
I said I'd never let you go, and I never did
I said I'd never let you go, and I never did

    General CommentYeah, I see it as a guy who really cares about this girl and he promises he'll always be there for her. And shes going through really hard times in her life so he's reminding her and telling her that he is right there beside her every step of the way to help in anyway and every way possible and that she won't ever be alone because he'll always be there for her.

    General CommentActually, I think "I said I'd never let you fall, Then I'd always make sense" sounds completely fine. He has told the girl before that he'd never let her fall. And in the end he always makes sense because he'd be there to catch her every time. Not saying it's right but, just a thought

    General CommentI agree with ASPbreakdown, "I said I'd never let you fall and I always meant it."

    I think the chorus sums up the meaning of this song. I love it.

    General CommentI know this awesome band is not a christian band however this song to me in a love song based around the rapture
    I'm not trying to preach believe me, i flip out when they play a church commercial at the movie theater in my college town before movies, because its preaching to an unwilling audience. And i completely believe everyone has the right to believe anything and everything they want

    besides my point.

    1. I've seen things in the streets i don't believe- the raising of the dead in the apocalypse
    2. cling to what you know- you're religion and beliefs
    3. never let you fall and i always meant it- he'd do what he could to make sure she never went to hell and she would be his only thread of happiness in eternal damnation
    4. they've got me on the outside looking in; weight of the world on his shoulders- as if he was in hell

    its obvious that he loves this girl more than anything else in the entire world he just doesn't know if his sins will let her be with him

    now that i got that out of my system

    This band is sick!
    i can't get this CD out of my head

    General CommentWell as far as that line goes, I always thought he was saying "I said I'd never let you fall, and I always maintained." But "and I always meant it" sounds fine, as well.

    This song, to me, is about a relationship that's falling apart, or has fell apart and he still loves her. It sounds like other people broke them apart: "they've got me on the outside looking in" (as in outside the relationship). He is basically just trying to get her to see that he's always been there for her and that he always will be. He's telling her that even though he makes mistakes, or stumbles, he'll always love her and always catch her when she falls ("with the weight of the world on my shoulders, they just want to see me fall"; I'm inferring that he slipped up, or else why would he write the song?). Basically, over all, I think that people caused a rift between them, because of rumours or something, and he slipped up, but he will always love her, and he just wishes that she'd believe him over them, because "they" are obviously fickle and liars, and he's always been there for her, unlike them.

    Amazing song =]
    I can relate. A lot.

    General CommentThis song is...well AMAZING, it touches home for me. this is my fave song by ADTR, is it there best, not necessarily. but it is absolutely amazing nonetheless. i listen to this song and the hairs on my neck stand up, its just like everything i want to say in one song. i love this song so much.

    "I said I'd never let you go, And I never did, I said I'd never let you fall, Then I'd always meant it, If you didn't have a chance, Then I never did, You'll always find me right there again" = just simply amazing. <33
