Well, I guess it would be nice if I could touch your body
I know not everybody has got a body like you
But I gotta think twice before I give my heart away
And I know all the games you play because I played them, too

Oh, but I need some time off from that emotion
Time to pick my heart up off the floor
Oh, when that love comes down without devotion
Well, it takes a strong man, baby
But I'm showin' you the door

'Cause I gotta have faith
I gotta' have faith
Because I gotta have faith, faith, faith
I got to have faith, faith, faith

Baby, I know you're askin' me to stay
Say "Please, please, please don't go away"
You say I'm givin' you the blues
Maybe you mean every word you say
Can't help but think of yesterday
And another who tied me down to loverboy rules

Before this river becomes an ocean
Before you throw my heart back on the floor
Oh, baby, I reconsider my foolish notion
Well, I need someone to hold me but I'll wait for somethin' more

Yes, I gotta have faith
Ooh, I gotta have faith
Because I gotta have faith, faith, faith
I gotta have faith, faith, faith

I'll just have to wait
Because I've got to have faith
I gotta have faith
I've got to, got to, got to have faith

Before this river becomes an ocean
Before you throw my heart back on the floor (I just gotta have faith)
Oh, oh, baby, I reconsider my foolish notion
Well, I need someone to hold me but I'll wait for somethin' more

'Cause I gotta have faith
Ooh, I gotta have faith
Because I gotta have faith, faith, faith
I gotta have faith, faith, faith

    General CommentI think it's about hanging out for something real - having faith that someone special is going to come along - rather than just settling for whoever is around just because you're lonely.

    General CommentI dont think its about being IN a relationship..

    I relate it to an ex wanting you back, trying to kiss you etc. and knocking her back, feeling tempted because youre lonely, but having faith that you can hold out for something better..

    ...Well it takes a strong man baby
    But I'm showing you the door....

    General CommentI love this song. I really do. I actually had never heard it until I heard Limp Bizkit's, uh, "different" cover of it ... which I liked ... but I like this MUCH better. It's just neat, and catchy.

    you DO gotta have faith, or a relationship is pretty much worthless.

    General CommentYou sing it George Michael! You gotta have faith! And a shitty relationship is not worth it just to have someone!

    General CommentI agree with princess*delilah, though I'm not sure if this songs fits into our world today, but it's great to visualise a place and time when courting and self control, were prioritised above tying another notch in your belt, or giving into lonelyness

    MemoryThis song is about having two women, one who the man loves, and the other who has sex with him but doesn't love him, and he's show the second one the door.
