Running On Faith

performed by Eric Clapton

by Jerry Lynn Williams



Lately I've been running on faith

What else can a poor boy do?

But my world will be right

When love comes over you



Lately I've been talking in my sleep

I can't imagine what I'd have to say

Except my world will be right

When love comes back your way



I've always been

One to take each and every day

Seems like by now

I'd find a love who cares just for me



Then we'd go running on faith

All of our dreams would come true

And our world will be right

When love comes over me and you



Chorus

Then we'd go running on faith

All of our dreams would come true

And our world will be right

When love comes over me and you

When love comes over you
