  • They ask me how I feel
    And if my love is real
    And how I know I'll make it through
    And 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 show me to the door
    They say don't come back no more
    'Cause I don't be like they'd like me to
    And I, I walk out on my own
    A thousand miles from home
    But 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 is disappearing
    Oh, this feeling is still here in my heart

    Don't let me drift too far
    Keep me where you are
    Where I will always be renewed
    And that which you've given me today
    Is worth more than I could pay
    And no matter what they say
    I believe in you

    I believe in you when wintertime turns to summer
    I believe in you when white turn to black
    I believe in you even though I be outnumbered
    Oh, though the earth may shake me
    Oh, though my friends forsake me
    Oh, even that couldn'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 Writer/s: BOB DYLAN
