"Faithfully remain" as written by Ben Harper, Jason Matthew Mozersky, Jordan Tyler Richardson and Jesse Ingalls....
I learned to say
Goodbye, to say goodbye too young
I learned to duck from words
Like bullets from a gun

How long can you pray
How long can you pray
And still not see a change
I faithfully remain
I faithfully remain

Some things
Some things
You have to let be lost
Some battles, some battles
You have to leave unfought

Then the truth just wastes away
In all we dare not say
And in all we can't explain
But I faithfully remain
I faithfully remain

Now I'm afraid
Once again
It has come to this
When it all goes dark
Nothing stays the same
Now I'm only what I missed

And my memories
They turn to tears
Oh they turn to fire, blood and pain
And I faithfully remain

I faithfully remain
And I faithfully remain
I faithfully remain
I faithfully remain

    General Commentthis is a great song. Ben Harper is absolutely amazing. I think in this song no matter how hard life gets, he will still be faithful to God and his faith.

    Song MeaningThis song is about the loss of Ben's close friend, Heath Ledger. About having to say goodbye too young, having to listen to hurtful words and untruths from the media, how friends can't defend him or explain because a battle with the media is impossible to win ... so the truth wastes away.
    And it's about letting go, but how Ben will always remain a faithful friend.
