Cat Power – I Believe In You lyrics

They ask me how I feel and if my love is real
And how I see the things that I know
I'm gonna make it through

They looked at me and frowned
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 my home
But I don't feel alone 'cause I believe, I do

I believe in you even through all the 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
And when the night is disappearing
This feeling will still be here in my heart, my heart

Please don't let me drift too far
Keep me safe the same way you are
So I will always be renewed

And what you've given me here today
Is worth everything I could pay
No matter what everyone, they, 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're only outnumbered

I'll be, oh, [Incomprehensible] earth would be shaken
And friends will be forsaken
But please, we can't go back
