  G                             D
I believe the heart's a theatre
             G                  D
And that the actors on its stage
            G                           D/F#
Are playing dreams but they're imposters
                              Em9 Em7   A11 A7
And that the devil pays their wage

I believe the passion of that drama
That we're certain is for real
Is a diversion for our senses
While the director comes to steal

CHORUS
         G                                 D
And ever since I was a little kid I didn't want to run away
       G                                     D
But it scared me half to death to think that I might have to stay
           G                             Gadd9 G
I've had a hundred scarecrow certainties
                         D/F#    Em11
Built a wooden drawbridge for my brain
         G   D/F# Em11
But they all burn up
       G        D/F#  Em11       A11    G    D  G  D
When I see Your face against the window pane

I believe that in the passionate
There's a part that is divine
I've seen the cosmos in a woman's smile
Tasted eternity in wine

But I don't just believe in sentiment
Or the miracles of everyday
I believe that there are lepers healed
I believe the dead are raised

BRIDGE
G                          D/F#           Em11  A11 A7
Jesus was a lover, He had a fire in His eyes
That could burn away excuses, cremate your alibis
He had a gaze that would expose to you all the subtle lies
That your soul permits your heart to tell concerning all that it denies
