Sting - If I Ever Lose My Faith In You Lyrics




You could say I lost my faith in science and progress
You could say I lost my belief in the holy church
You could say I lost my sense of direction
You could say all of this and worse but

If I ever lose my faith in you
There'd be nothing left for me to do

Some would say I was a lost man in a lost world
You could say I lost my faith in the people on TV
You could say I'd lost my belief in our politicians
They all seemed like game show hosts to me

If I ever lose my faith in you
There'd be nothing left for me to do

I could be lost inside their lies without a trace
But every time I close my eyes I see your face

I never saw no miracle of science
That didn't go from a blessing to a curse
I never saw no military solution
That didn't always end up as something worse but
Let me say this first

If I ever lose my faith in you
There'd be nothing left for me to do

    I'd be honored if some Sting fans would take a listen to my acoustic piano & vocal performances of ENGLISHMAN IN NEW YORK and WHY SHOULD I CRY FOR YOU on my YT channel in tribute to the master of lyricism and composition. Live acoustic with no autotune or digital editing. Thanks and peace.

    You could say I lost my faith in science and progress
    You could say I lost my belief in the holy Church
    You could say I lost my sense of direction
    You could say all of this and worse, but
    If I ever lose my faith in you
    There'd be nothing left for me to do

    Some would say I was a lost man in a lost world
    You could say I lost my faith in the people on TV
    You could say I'd lost my belief in our politicians
    They all seemed like game show hosts to me
    If I ever lose my faith in you
    There'd be nothing left for me to do
    I could be lost inside their lies without a trace
    But every time I close my eyes I see your face

    I never saw no miracle of science
    That didn't go from a blessing to a curse
    I never saw no military solution
    That didn't always end up as something worse, but
    Let me say this first
    If I ever lose my faith in you
    There'd be nothing left for me to do

  29. Jamel Wright

    I lost my faith in politicians. They all seem like game show hosts to me.

    SO true since 2008. Even more so after 2015 in Guatemala and 2016 in America.

  30. Meg Loves Music

    Such a talented man, such a distinctive voice too! Love him❤️

  31. Timothy Midgett

    No Sting, I will never lose my faith in God for the following reasons: Yes the invisible Son took on human form a little over 2000 years ago and spent 3 years, not 3 days, but 3 years walking hundreds of miles visiting many cities to tell many thousands of people who God is and that God is real and that God loves them but that some bad people needed to change their evil ways so other good people would not have to suffer from what the evil people were doing to them. Jesus healed thousands of people for 3 years in public to prove he was God's Son. Jesus helped thousands of us humans. God has already revealed Himself to us face to face on this earth, He spent 3 years talking to us face to face in human form, He has done His part to help us. I love Sting's music. Crank the volume up!!!!!

    you could say he lost his hair!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The Band Played On (hand up)


    Oh' cruel world take my pawn
    In this game at the start was you
    Take my nights and days
    Take my sunlight to change my ways
    Take all after the line I lay
    Spare my musicians
    In the worst a devil can say
    Only to know
    The band played on
    By my will and not by you
    I gave my best
    without compensation nor worldly increase
    all I gathered were nine inch nails
    on a path all the world set to decrease
    Take my Bi-shops and take my nooks
    Take another pawn in the shadow of my rooks
    As my band plays on
    By my will...
    not yours
    A poet is my king
    Not the lack
    of empathy
    kindness
    loyalty
    and love
    This empty world worships now
    No matter what you do
    We, us, our won over I, me, and you
    And my band plays on
    My BAND plays on
    without compensation nor worldly increase
    only to witness
    Our battles to cease
    Oh' Satan your teeth of hate are now gone
    As this game was won
    Not by a King or Queen
    but by a lonely pawn
    called WE.
    After the defeat?
    My band played on
    Ready, player One.

    Lisa Weaver

  54. Brooks Kevin

    Just don't let someone who thinks they are a good psychiatrist or phycilogist make you worse off thats what was said and thats the way it was. And for that reason im out.

  55. Paul McCafferty

    I'm sure this is the actual recorded version which they are miming too, then they jam the end live, I'm pretty sure I'm right.

  56. Diane Staff

    Listen to this at least 3 times a day brilliant

  57. Hayes Morgheim

  67. Antony May

    Great song and great voice

  68. Hugh Jardon

    I have been a fan of the Police and Sting for years and years. I've had the pleasure to see Sting in concert twice, truly a brilliant musician! The second time I saw him, Annie Lennox opened for him...one of the best nights of my life!

  69. Robert Faulkner

    I don't have enough hands to express how much I (expletive) LOVE this. Hope I didn't offend anyone. 🙌🏿

  70. Dina campos lopes

    Funny is your resilience was already present in the frugal beat 😂. A steady pace you maintained throughout and was thus able to go a long way. 👍

  71. Dina campos lopes

    Such good music for such a longtime. Consistent 👍☀️ simple direct and meaningful. Sting is a masterclass in stardom 👍💜

  72. Ирина Игнатова

    Моя любовь!!!

  73. Elza De Branco

    Sting maravilhoso

  74. Cristina b

    Sting, amo sus canciones. Un abrazo España.

  75. Noiseheads

    It's even more amazing considering this is a mix of the studio version with them live in that room... you can hear it if you bounce around the video, definitely in the chorus but specifically in the drums changing sounds towards the end of the track (snare tuning drops a bit and has a bit more reverb). But holy hell is it pretty much seamless!

  76. Stefan Riemann

    Wunderbar

  77. Richard G Hernandez

    I wish this entire VHS tape was reissued on Blu-Ray....

  78. Dina campos lopes

    Courage

  79. Annette Honicky

    Si alguna vez pierdo mi fe en tí

    Podrías decir que he perdido mi fe en la ciencia y el progreso
    Podrías decir que he perdido mi creencia en la santa iglesia
    Podrías decir que he perdido mi sentido de dirección
    Podrías decir todo eso y cosas peores, pero

    Si alguna vez pierdo mi fe en tí
    No habría nada más por hacer para mí

    Algunos podrían decir que era un hombre perdido en un mundo perdido
    Podrías decir que he perdido mi fe en la gente en la televisión
    Podrías decir que he perdido mi creencia en nuestros políticos
    Todos parecían como presentadores d

    e programas de juego para mí

    Si alguna vez pierdo mi fe en tí
    No habría nada más por hacer para mí

    Podría estar perdido dentro de sus mentiras, sin dejar rastro
    Pero cada vez que cierro los ojos, veo tu cara

    Nunca vi ningún milagro de la ciencia
    Que no vayan desde una bendición a una maldición
    Nunca vi una solución militar
    Que no siempre termine en algo peor, pero
    Déjame decirte esto primero

    Si alguna vez pierdo mi fe en tí
    No me quedaría nada más por hacer
    🇦🇷🇦🇷🇦🇷❤

  91. Local Fox

    Yeah if I lose it in someone I won't lose it in myself. Life
