Lyric of the Week: STAY FAITHFUL

Updated: Mar 12

Well I’m sitting here

Still in bed

While the sun’s come up

and the day has long since started

I’m searching for words

Inside my head

But nothing comes up

My deepest thoughts are still closely guarded

So many things

Have come to pass

Too much to capture

And to express in one short song

But I’ll find a way

To break the impasse

And what’s inside

Will come pouring out before long.

CHORUS

Well I gotta have faith

I gotta stay faithful

And stay true to the path that I follow

Well I gotta have faith

I gotta stay faithful

‘Cause any other way for me would just ring hollow.

Well I got a message

I didn’t want to accept

So I pressed hard

To get to the source of the truth

I had to get some answers

I had to go direct

I had no desire

To deal with her being obtuse.

CHORUS

Well I gotta have faith

I gotta stay faithful

That was the essence of the answer I heard

Well I gotta have faith

I gotta stay faithful

Anything else is a corruption of the word.

Be faithful to yourself

Deal in good faith with others

That’s where the good orderly direction will be found

Be faithful to your friends

Stay faithful to your lovers

And then yours will be the treasures that abound.

CHORUS

Well you gotta have faith

You gotta stay faithful

Stay true to the things that you believe in

Well you gotta have faith

You gotta stay faithful

Love and understanding will then deepen.

Well you gotta have faith

You gotta stay faithful

Stay faithful to the road that you have chosen

Well you gotta have faith

You gotta stay faithful

Hold on long enough and then your eyes will be opened.

Faithful as a rock in a turbulent sea.

Here's another one from the early 2000s, when I was still living at the Jersey Shore before I moved to California. It was really a period of uncertainty, in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 when it seemed that things that ought to have stayed permanent were not. This song was really an exhortation to myself, and anyone else going through this type of phase or period, to stick to the things we believe in because those are the sources of strength and perseverance.

And in March 2019, when this is being posted on my blog, there is a period of uncertainty enveloping Jews throughout the world because of the rise in antisemitism seemingly everywhere, but especially in America. We need to stay faithful to our roots and the Reason for what we are in the world, and not let any of these antisemitic elements prevail.
