"HAVE A LITTLE FAITH IN ME"


At 4.43 AM, all of the roads look dark, and whatever you see, you hope it's not real, and while this is not John Hiatt's original version (damn those Youtube things that tell you time and time again these days you cannot watch a stupid music video), here's Joe Cocker, who – I believe – kind of invented the entire genre of "white men can get the blues, too, if they are from a poor background and not American"

When the road gets dark
And you can no longer see
Just let my love throw a spark
And have a little faith in me

And when the tears you cry
Are all you can believe
Just give these loving arms a try
And have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me

And when your secret heart
Cannot speak so easily
Come here darling, from a whisper start
And have a little faith in me
And when your back's against the wall
Just turn around and you, you will see
I will catch you, I will catch your fall
Just have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me

'Cause I've been loving you, for such a long, long time
Expecting nothing in return
Just for you to have a little faith in me
You see time, time is our friend
'Cause for us, there is no end
And all you gotta do, is have a little faith in me
I will hold you up, I will hold you up
And your love, gives me strength enough to
Have a little faith in me

Hey hey
All you gotta do for me girl
Is have a little faith in me
