"Faded" as written by and Greg Dulli....
You can believe in me, baby
Can I believe in you?
What you don't know
Can hurt you, child
All the things a mind can
Do to you

If I go bad
From time to time
Love to love but love is not
My only crime
Bathe the path, shine the light
Better get your ass up on
The mountain, baby
I'll take you up tonight

This I feel
Behind the blue clouds
I remain concealed
Lord, lift me out of the night
Come on, look down
And see the mess I'm in tonight

You can believe in me, baby
Can I believe in you?
I wish I could remember what
You said, when I said

You said
Good boy... bad boy... killjoy...
Get your ass over here, boy
And since I know
Myself so well
Don't breathe a word
Don't you ever tell

You can believe in me, baby
Can I believe in you?
That secret's gonna kill you
In the end
It's gonna kill

    General CommentI saw the Twilight Singers back in October and Greg Dulli came out of nowhere with this one to close the night out. Quite the pleasant surprise, this sexy, sexy song.

    General CommentThis song is absolutely stunning! It's not just a Whigs' classic... it should be a classic fullstop! It's the most uplifting song of redemption I've ever heard. It's obvious he's been through some very tough times. Whenever I'm going through tough times, I listen to this. The perfect end to a perfect album about going down... then back up again. The song is so good, it doesn't feel like 8 minutes....
