i believe in you lyrics – cat power

(originally by bob dylan)

they ask me how i feel
and if my love is real
and how i seem to think that i know i’m gonna make it through.
they look at me and frown,
they drove me from this town,
they don’t want me around
’cause i believe.

they show me to the door,
they said don’t come back no more
we don’t like the way you think you do.
so i walked out on my own
one thousand miles from home
but i don’t feel alone
’cause i believe.

i believe in you even through the all tears and laughter,
i believe in you even though we’re apart.
i believe in you even on the morning after.
oh, when the dawn is nearing
when the night is disappearing
this feeling will still be here in my heart.

please don’t let me drift too far,
keep me safe and same where you are
so i can always be renewed.
and what you’ve given me here today
is worth everything i could pay
and no matter what everyone will say
’cause i believe
i believe, i believe,
i believe, i believe in you.

i believe in you when we’ve had no time together.
i believe in you when white turns to black,
i believe in you even though we’ll all be outnumbered.
oh, the earth will be shakin’
and friends will be forsaken
please, we can’t go back.
