Love Believes

By John Mercurio, 2008


Never knew my parents,
Move from town to town.
Foster families raised me,
Never settled down.
But damn good source of income
From the time when I was three
Orion’s good for cash but lousy company.
Just a monthly check,
Just another pair of hands on deck.
Orion doesn’t talk much
He’s not got much to say.
Orion doesn’t smile much
I guess that’s just his way.
Social worker packed me
As ready-to-eat knight
The legionary shifty and untrusty
And ready for a fight.

So my file set,
So my file red and black and white,
That’s what they all said
So I believed them…

Then one day I met a stranger,
With a scar upon his face
He asked me if I walked in
What was in his final case.
He opened up the lectures
To show what was within.
I peered inside and gazed
Upon his dusty file in
Such a broken thing
Then I pull the ball across the strain

Orion’s off exploring
Castles in the air
I know he sits beside you
He’s never really there.
Orion doesn’t feel much
As I sit to the ball
Orion doesn’t smile much
He’s best when left alone.

That’s what they all said
So I believed them
That’s still who I am
That’s still who I am…

So whatever you think you might feel in my songs
It’s all just a part of the routine…
See around…

Turn around
Look again
I will still be here
Change the pain to a thing of beauty
If you would allow
I could show you how.

Sweet Elizabeth,
Don’t believe that I’m worth of fight
Turn and walk away
You’ve been of all kind
I won’t forget tonight.

Turn around
(Orion doesn’t trust much)
Have some faith
(Cos I sit to the ball)
I have some to spare
(Orion doesn’t smile much
He’s best when left alone)
Please believe
(Can’t teach this soul talk)
That you turn around
(who trains)
I will still be here
(others have tried, just walk away)
Turn around
(Walk away)
Turn around
(Walk away)
Turn around
(Walk away)

Love receives all things,
Love receives all things,
Love it’s a stairs
Love believes all things
(Orion doesn’t laugh much)
I don’t really care
(Orion doesn’t talk much)
I’ve got my faith
(Orion doesn’t feel much)
I will still be there
(Orion doesn’t trust much)
I’m around you anyway

Love endures, love contains
Love receives all things,
Love insures, love it’s a stairs
Love believes all things
Love believes all things
Love believes
