I Believe in You

They ask me how I feel

And if my love is real

And how I know I'll make it through.

And they, they look at me and frown,

They'd like to drive me from this town,

They don't want me around

'Cause I believe in you.

.

They show me to the door,

They say don't come back no more

'Cause I don't be like they'd like me to,

And I walk out on my own

A thousand miles from home

But I don't feel alone

'Cause I believe in you.

.

I believe in you even through the tears and the laughter,

I believe in you even though we be apart.

I believe in you even on the morning after.

Oh, when the dawn is nearing

Oh, when the night is disappearing

Oh, this feeling is still here in my heart.

.

Don't let me drift too far,

Keep me where you are

Where I will always be renewed.

And that which you've given me today

Is worth more than I could pay

And no matter what they say

I believe in you.

.

I believe in you when winter turn to summer,

I believe in you when white turn to black,

I believe in you even though I be outnumbered.

Oh, though the earth may shake me

Oh, though my friends forsake me

Oh, even that couldn't make me go back.

.

Don't let me change my heart,

Keep me set apart

From all the plans they do pursue.

And I, I don't mind the pain

Don't mind the driving rain

I know I will sustain

'Cause I believe in you.

.
