Let's Let It Be (3:35) © 2005 Jason Paul Johnston
I put down the bible this morning, looking for a little faith.
Got nothing but confusion and slight headache.
I threw some prayers to heaven, and watched them all fall down.
Thought a few might stick there, but I was wrong.

This is the moment I ask myself the question:
Do I believe, or do you believe in me?
It begs an answer, and the silence becomes a lesson.
So if we can agree, let's let it be.

I paced the old church building, looking for something firm
Got nothing but the feeling, that no stone would be unturned
Talking to the preacher, he said that I should just believe
And I said, Jesus is my saviour, but what does he want from me

Turn in place and spin the dial
Roll the dice we could be here a while
Waiting for the coin-flip to fall
When the side that I want is certainty...

Stared into a crowed room, the eyes were lost away
I wondered bout this generation's future past this day
I was watching for the world's end, and the change of all I know
But now I'm just waiting to grow old

But if we can't agree, let's let it be.
But if you can believe, please just believe.
