I Still Believe In You (Featuring Olly Knights of Turin Brakes)

from by Matthew Ryan



I Still Believe In You
Written by Matthew Ryan

I can't sleep
I can't wake
My life support my dear has gone away
I work so hard
I break at noon
I watch the same plot unfold there but never soon
And I still believe in you

I want so much
That never comes
The traffic moves so slowly
Feeling numb
And I still believe in you

Late last night
From on the roof
I smoked a cigarette, I looked for proof
And in the quiet
I watched a plane
Hum and float through the snow while I said your name
And I still believed in you

I take a shower
I brush my teeth
I feel the rug being pulled from under me
And I still believe in you


from I Recall Standing As Though Nothing Could Fall, released June 22, 2011
Olly Knights of Turin Brakes sang. Molly Thomas played violin. Matthew Ryan performed everything else.
