album _New York_
(Lou Reed, 1989)

written by Lou Reed
===================


        You can't depend on your family
        you can't depend on your friends
        You can't depend on a beginning
        you can't depend on an end

        You can't depend on intelligence
        ooohhh, you can't depend on God
        You can only depend on one thing
        you need a busload of faith to get by, watch, baby

        Busload of faith to get by
        busload of faith to get by
        Busload of faith to get by
        you need a busload of faith to get by

        You can depend on the worst always happening
        you can depend on a murderer's drive
        You can bet that if he rapes somebody
        there'll be no trouble having a child

        You can bet that if she aborts it
        pro-lifers will attack her with rage
        You can depend on the worst always happening
        you need a busload of faith to get by, yeah

        Busload of faith to get by
        busload of faith to get by
        Busload of faith to get by, baby
        busload of faith to get by

        You can't depend on the goodly hearted
        the goodly hearted made lamp-shades and soap
        You can't depend on the Sacrament
        no Father, no Holy Ghost

        You can't depend on any churches
        unless there's real estate you want to buy
        You can't depend on a lot of things
        you need a busload of faith to get by, woh

        Busload of faith to get by
        busload of faith to get by
        Busload of faith to get by
        busload of faith to get by

        You can't depend on no miracle
        you can't depend on the air
        You can't depend on a wise man
        you can't find 'em because they're not there

        You can depend on cruelty
        crudity of thought and sound
        You can depend on the worst always happening
        you need a busload of faith to get by, ha

        Busload of faith to get by
        busload of faith to get by
        Busload of faith to get by
        busload of faith to get by
