Lyrics

Is there anyone who ever remembers
Changing their mind from the paint on a sign?

Is there anyone who really recalls ever breaking rank at all
For something someone yelled real loud one time?

Oh, everyone believes
In how they think it ought to be
Oh, everyone believes
And they're not going easily

Belief is a beautiful armor
But makes for the heaviest sword
Like punching underwater
You never can hit who you're trying for

Some need the exhibition
And some have to know they tried
It's the chemical weapon
For the war that's raging on inside

Oh, everyone believes
From emptiness to everything
Oh, everyone believes
And no one's going quietly

CHORUS
We're never gonna win the world
We're never gonna stop the war
We're never gonna beat this
If belief is what we're fighting for

We're never gonna win the world
We're never gonna stop the war
We're never gonna beat this
If belief is what we're fighting for

Is there anyone you can remember who
Ever surrendered with their life on the line?

CHORUS
We're never gonna win the world
We're never gonna stop the war
We're never gonna beat this
If belief is what we're fighting for

We're never gonna win the world
We're never gonna stop the war
We're never gonna beat this
If belief is what we're fighting for

What puts a hundred thousand children in the sand?
Belief can, belief can
What puts the folded flag inside his mother's hand?
Belief can, belief can

    It has such a relaxing rhythm and melody. Must be on of my favourite songs from John.

    John Mayer is one of the most brilliant musicians of our time. This song is fucking amazing, and I love everything that he has put out so far, and I truly believe that I always will!

    This song is just such a great commentary on what's going on in the world... it makes you sit back and think. I love it. The lyrics are so true... and John Mayer finds the perfect way to say them. *sigh*
