something to believe in

I came into your house today
not knowing what I was to say
not necessarily about my faith
nor the empty cross around my neck
nor the promises we all expect
but because I don't know you
I wonder if you know me
I wonder if it's what you want
I know I need to change
everything is changing around us

now there are so many questions
that I don't know where to start
for it is you that has taught me that
at times we all feel lost
yet without cost
I felt like you
were trying to tell me something new
and I wouldn't listen
now in some strange way
I felt like I connected with you today
not necessarily with my faith
you know that
but with something to believe in
and I say that with feeling
