something to believe lyrics – mark lanegan

there’s a mockingbird singing in a tree
outside my window looking down on me
give me a reason, something to believe
another season i will sit and grieve

that bad old sun forever shining on
the world keeps turning, though my hope is gone
i close my eyes and when that day is done
i hang my head and dream about no one

show me direction and i’m good to go
i’m trying so hard, always fall so low
and when i fall, there’ll be another star
i’m chasing my tail, always running

oh, it is so hard
with the end
since i find
we’re real hard
weary soul
we come [?]
oh, it is so hard

now you heard my song, will you turn and go
give me a reason, and i’ll say it’s so
if you stand by me, i could never leave
you’d be the reason, something to believe
something to believe
something to believe
something to believe
