=== Faith (1987) ===
This time I think that my lover  Understands me  If we have faith in each other  Then we can be  Strong, baby  I will be your father figure  Put your tiny hand in mine  I will be your preacher teacher  Anything you have in mind  I will be your father figure  I have had enough of crime  I will be the one who loves you … Til the end of time.
Father FigureI've had enough of danger  And people on the streets  I'm looking out for angels  Just trying to find some peace Now I think it's time  That you let me know  So if you love me  Say you love me  But if you don't just let me go...
One More Try


=== Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 (1990) ===
I guess somewhere along the way  He must have let us all out to play  Turned his back, and all God's children  Crept out the back door
Did you cling to the things they sold you?  Did you cover your eyes when they told you  That he can't come back, 'cause he has no children  To come back for
Praying for Time
