About the Song....
"The sentiment came from thinking about the lady I was with for four years, when I thought I was going to settle down and marry. I've always loved the idea of being with someone for a long time and loving them and vice-versa and knowing them intimately and having that partner in life. I've always wanted that. It was written one afternoon at home while in the process of writing another song. It's probably the quickest song I've ever written, because it was so simple, straightforward, yet emotional. I always try and write complicated songs, I don't try, I feel the need to, because what drives me up the wall is hearing the same three chords in a song that are in every song played over the last thirty years. There's got to be a better way to write songs than playing the same three frigging chords that even lean on the same melodies. That's been one of my major frustrations. But once in a while it's nice to go back to those chords. Because sometimes with the complicated stuff you get so deep and bogged down with the technical aspect, it's necessary to just go, 'oh fuck it', plunk on the piano or the guitar and bring those three chords back. With a little twist. I've always got to find some little twist."  - Julian Lennon on Faithful

The Lyrics


If you could say to me that you'd undoubtedly be faithful to me,
then I would say to you that I'd undoubtedly be faithful to you.
After all this time
I am here to say that I would sign upon the dotted line.
Can't you read my mind
that's all I've ever wanted from you.

If we could share our lives, without the compromise
I'd be faithful to you
If we could gravitate, learn to communicate
I'd be so faithful to you.
After all this time (after all this time)
I am here to say that I would sign upon the dotted line.
Can't you read my mind
that's all I've ever wanted from you.

There's never been a day when I could say
that I was falling out of love with you (falling out of love).
And I would kiss the stars and hug the moon
for you to see that I'm in love with you.
How could you be so blind
After all this time (after all this time)
I am here to say that I would sign upon the dotted line.
Don't you feel it's time (don't you feel it's time)
we should settle down, caress the love we have and live as one.
Can't you read my mind
that's all I've ever wanted from you.
That's all I've ever wanted.

If you could say to me that you'd undoubtedly be faithful to me,
then I would say to you that I'd undoubtedly be faithful.
