Wow, trust seems like the "impossible dream" sometimes. It means making yourself vulnerable, risking being hurt, betrayed, used or abused. Can any of us really afford that? But what's the alternative? Numbing myself with drugs, alcohol, and sex? I've been that route and don't want to go back there.

So trust is all thats left....but how?

Well, I won't back down
No I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down.
