   I believe in your purpose baby
   Coming up to the surface and maybe

   Yeah, yeah but it's slow going
   Something's showing yeah, yeah

   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

   But it's slow going something's showing
   Yeah, yeah
