If only you believe like I believe, baby
We'd get by
If only you believe in miracles, baby
So would i
If only you believe like I believe, baby
We'd get by
If only you believe in miracles, baby
So would i.

I might have to move heaven and earth to prove
It to you, baby
So we're makin' love and you feel the power
And I feel the power
Then there's really nothing that we can't do
If we wanted to, baby
We could exist on the stars
It'd be so easy
All we gotta do
Is get a little faith in you
Oh, I've been (to) so many places
I've seen some things
I know, love is the answer
Keeps holding this world together
Ain't nothing better
Ain't nothing better
And all the answers to our prayers
Hell , it's the same everywheres, baby
Nothing ever breaks up the heart
Only tears give you away
Then you're right where I found ya
With my arms around ya
Oh baby, baby, baby, love is a magic word, yeah
Few ever find in a lifetime
But from that very first look in your eyes
I knew you and I had but one heart
Only our bodies were apart
That was so easy, so easy
I had a taste of the real world
When I went down on you, girl.

If only you believe like I believe, baby
We'd get by
If only you believe in miracles, baby
So would i
If only you believe like I believe, baby
We'd get by
If only you believe in miracles, baby
So would i.

I can hear windmills and rainbows
Whenever you're talkin' to me
I feel like swirling and dancin'
Whenever you're walking with me
You ripple like a river when I touch you
When I pluck your body like a string
When I start dancin' inside ya
Oh baby, you make me wanna sing
Yeah, baby, baby, baby, baby
Oh yeah, all right
Baby, we're sure doin' it tonight
Everytime you come by, let me try
Pretty, please sugar on it
That's how I like it
I can't even believe it, with you
It's like having every dream I ever wanted
Come true
I picked up your vibes
You know it opened my eyes
But I'm still dreamin' yeah
And you're right where I found ya
With my arms around ya.

Refrain (2x)

    This was Marty Balin's first real huge success and really displayed his vocals while allowing Grace Slick to step into the background a bit. Marty assumed the role of lead singer for the band and led them through a series of hits in the late 70's and 80's.

    This rather descriptive(graphic?) love song describes the elation that hormones produce early in a relationship. Everything else disappears, you become invincible, and magic is very real.

    Its really a beautiful sensual love long from a man to woman - hes singing about how they feel when they make love. But for some reason she doubts things and he is saying to her " if only youd believe like i believe ".. I hope she did believe. The man i love is finding it hard to believe in miracles. I sent him this song - i want him to believe.

    This could quite possibly be one of the most powerful combination of words evr put together. It has been my favorite song of all time since it first came out. Marty should be making albums every year; what a voice!
