They asked me how I feel and if my love is real, and how I know I'll make it through,
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...they show me to the door, they said, "Don't come back no more," 'cause I don't feel like they'd like me to,
I...I walk out on my own, a thousand miles from home - 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's disappearing,
Oh, this feeling's still here in my heart.
Don't let me drift too far, keep me where you are and I will always be renewed,
Look what you've given me today, it's worth more than I can pay; no matter what they say I believe in you.
I believe in you when the night time turns to slumber,
I believe in you when white turns to black,
I believe in you, even though I be outnumbered,
Oh, though the odds may shake me,
Oh, though my friends forsake me,
Oh, even that can'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.
