Autumn, Emilie - Second Hand Faith Lyrics




I'll take my hope where I can find it
Seems I find it here in you
Hang your curtain get behind it
I won't even ask for proof
Go ahead and read my fortune
Cast your dice devine my fate
I just want to know I have one
Tell me that it's not too late for
A little second hand faith
A line upon my palm that I can't just erase
'Cause I need to believe in a hierarchic grace
I can do without a book I'll never read
Second hand faith is all I need
I will pay you for your trouble
I will pay you for your time
Steal my wallet, charge me double
All I've come for is a sign
Is there someone who can help me?
Up above the clouds I see
Sitting in a Chinese restaurant
Someone comes to offer me
A little second hand faith
A line upon my palm that I can't just erase
'Cause I need to believe in a hierarchic grace
I can do without a book I'll never read
Second hand faith is all I need
'Cause this feeling of forgiveness means much more to me
Than that paper on the wall that cost you all of ten bucks
If an ancient word, a heathen spell can salvage me
I will believe in miracles 'cause it would take a saint to set me free
And if my luck don't last too long
Or if my life gets worse
I'll be back for another song
A blessing or a curse
And I'll never ask for refunds
'Cause I know you're not to blame
Take more blood, more hair, more money
I'll do anything to claim
A little second hand faith
A line upon my palm that I can't just erase
'Cause I need to believe in a hierarchic grace
I can do without a book I'll never read
Second hand faith is all I need
Is a little second hand faith
A line upon my palm that I can't just erase
'Cause I need to believe in a hierarchic grace
What somebody threw away
May just get me through the day
I can do without a book I'll never read
Second hand faith is all I need
Second hand faith is all I need
Is all I need
Is all I
