Creatures of little faith

Ray Davies, released on Other People's Lives (solo) © Davray Music Ltd. 2006

.

You caught me with my pants down

But I was only taking a shower

Still you looked for the evidence

Like the smell of perfume, or lipstick on my collar

You're always suspicious, and terrified I'd made a mistake

We are such creatures of little faith

We are such creatures of little faith

.

And when I come home late, you always ask me

"Have you been drinking?"

"I swear I've been working"

You say I'm lying as if you know just what I'm thinking

You say you don't trust me, and you quiz me till I finally break

Oh, we are such creatures of little faith

Such creatures of little faith

.

You say that love is blind

I wish you were out of sight, and out of mind

I take you out fist fighting[?]

But still I find you keep looking for those telltale signs

.

I didn't mean to follow you,

But I suspected you were meeting somebody

I was playing detective

Thought you were fooling around, now it's too late to say I'm sorry

Still I'm optimistic, my trust has not been betrayed

Forgive me

I'm still a sad creature of little faith

We are such creatures of little faith

.

And all we need

All we need

All we need is a little bit of faith

We are such creatures of little faith

Such creatures of little faith

.

Don't you know that

A little bit of faith can be such a beautiful thing?
