Lyrics/Song Structure:

======================

---> Drum Intro

---> Play Riff 1 over:

I believe in your purpose baby

Coming up to the surface and maybe

I'll never see you again then again who knows

Make me quiver hands will shiver

Still got all the things that I woulda give her

Yeah, yeah but it's slow going

Something's showing yeah, yeah

---> Play Pre-Chorus (x1)

---> Play Riff 2 (x2)

---> Play Riff 2 over:

Love is a stream that will find it's own course

Making due is a thing a thing I will do no more

---> Play Riff 3 over:

Whenever you come back I'll be waiting

Trifling the slack no head gating

---> Play Riff 4 over:

This is all pure fiction you know that's right

Just pure fiction

That's all right

---> Play Riff 1 over:

I believe in your purpose baby

Coming up to the surface and maybe

I'll never see you again then again who knows

Make me quiver hands will shiver

Still got all the things that I woulda give her, yeah

But it's slow going something's showing

Yeah, yeah

---> Play Pre-Chorus (x1)

---> Play Riff 2 (x2)
