This ridiculously optimistic breakup song has always taunted me with what I regard as a boundless capacity for radio-ready listenability.
Bonus audio, because you look like you’ve been working out: Terry Quiett and Guinn Walker did a sneaky cool version of this song at 2005’s I Wish I Wrote That concert.
Leap of Faith – Quiett and Walker
Leap of Faith
© 2000 Bryan Masters G That ain't a lot to D C hang your hat on G D C A promise and a rose you sat on G One look tells me that D you're seeing double G Runnin' like hell and C headed for trouble G D But I guess you're gonna be okay C G Let's take a leap of faith G Take a leap of faith D Into a deep dark hole G Don't turn away C It'll free your soul G If it don't kill you D It'll be okay C G Take a leap of faith When we first met you were the firecracker Said I remind you of your favorite actor But now we're drownin' in a pool of crazy You're gettin' dumb and I've gotten lazy But I guess we're gonna be okay Let's take a leap of faith C Faith means believing G in what you know ain't so D G (Mark Twain) Our little motor has been overheating The vows we took have taken quite a beating This path we're cuttin' isn't carved in stone Maybe we'll figure it out together alone Either way we're gonna be okay Let's take a leap of faith Bryan Masters Music/ASCAP
