Faith In My Eyes

Derek Webb

 Em7Em9Am7G/BC2
 C2G/BAm7C/GD2/F#
As I survey the ground for ants
 C2G/BD7sus4GC/G
 Looking for a place to sit and read    
 C2G/BAm7C/GD2/F#
I'm reminded of the streets of my hometown
 C2G/BD7sus4GC/G
How they're much like this concrete that's warm beneath my feet  

And how I'm all wrapped up in my mother's face
With a touch of my father just up around the eyes
And the sound of my brother's laugh
But more wrapped up in what binds our ever distant lives

 GGmaj7C2
 But if I must go
 Em7Em9Am7G/BC2
 Things I trust will be better off without me
 GGmaj7C2
But I don't want to know
 Em7Em9Am7G/BC2
 Life is better off   a   mystery

 C2D7sus4GC/GG
So keep 'em coming these lines on the road          
 C2D7sus4EmG
And keep me responsible be it a light or heavy load      
 C2D7sus4GC/GG
And keep me guessing with these blessings in disguise         
 C2D7sus4GC/G
And I'll walk with grace my feet and faith my eyes   

Hometown weather is on TV
And I imagine the lives of the people living there
And I'm curious if they imagine me
Cause they just wanna leave; I wish that I could stay

But I get turned around
And I mistake my happiness for blessing
But I'm blessed as the poor
Still I judge success by how I'm dressing

 C2D7sus4GC/GG
So keep 'em coming these lines on the road         
 C2D7sus4EmG
And keep me responsible be it a light or heavy load       
 C2D7sus4GC/GG
And keep me guessing with these blessings in disguise         
 C2D7sus4F2C2GC/GG
And I'll walk with grace my feet and faith my eyes                
 F2C2D
La-la-la's            

So I'll sing a song of my hometown
I'll breathe the air and walk the streets
Maybe find a place to sit and read
And the ants are welcome company

Repeat chorus
 C2D7sus4GC/GG
I'll walk with grace my feet and faith my eyes.      
 C2D7sus4F2C2GC/GG
And I'll walk with grace my feet and faith my eyes...
