I sit alone and watch the clock
Trying to collect my thoughts
All I think about is you

And so I cry myself to sleep
And hope the devil I don't meet
In the dreams that I live through

Believe in me
I know you've waited for so long
Believe in me
Sometimes the weak become the strong
Believe in me
This life's not always what it seems
Believe in me
Cause I was made for chasing dreams

All the smiles you've had to fake
And all the shit you've had to take
Just to lead us here again

I never have the things to say
To make it all just go away
To make it all just disappear

Believe in me
I know you've waited for so long
Believe in me
Sometimes the weak become the strong
Believe in me
This life's not always what it seems
Believe in me
Cause I was made for chasing dreams

It's my life
It's my choice
Hear my words
Hear my voice
And just believe

I sit alone and watch the clock
Trying to collect my thoughts
And all I think about is you

If you believe in me
Life's not always what it seems
Believe in me
Cause I was made for chasing dreams

Believe in me
I know you've waited for so long
Believe in me
Sometimes the weak become the strong
Believe in me
This life's not always what it seems
Believe in me
Cause I was made for chasing dreams

    It sounds like he's talking to his wife about his career. He's telling her that she doesn't need to worry about him being in a band. He's chasing his dream and she can believe in him to provide. I like this song, being a married musician myself.

    i love this song! i am guessing that it means that this guy and this girl are in a long distance relationship and they dont really get to see each other that much and the girl is starting to lose faith that she wont be able to ever get to see him. where it says "Believe in me
    I know you've waited for so long" pretty much means that he is telling her that they will be together someday.

    I never have the things to say
