  • I can read your mind
    And I know your story
    I see what you're going through, yeah
    It's an uphill climb
    And I'm feeling sorry
    But I know it will come to you, yeah
    Don't surrender
    Cause you can win
    In this thing called love
    When you want it the most
    There's no easy way out
    When you're ready to go
    And your heart's left in doubt
    Don't give up on your faith
    Love comes to those who believe it
    And that's the way it is
    When you question me
    For a simple answer
    I don't know what to say, no
    But it's plain to see
    If you stick together
    You're gonna find the way, yeah
    So don't surrender
    Cause you can win
    In this thing called love
    When you want it the most
    There's no easy way out
    When you're ready to go
    And your heart's left in doubt
    Don't give up on your faith
    Love comes to those who believe it
    And that's the way it is
    That's the way it is
    When life is empty
    With no tomorrow
    And loneliness starts to call
    Baby don't worry
    Forget your sorrow
    Cause love's gonna conquer it all, all
    When you want it the most
    There's no easy way out
    When you're ready to go
    And your heart's left in doubt
    Don't give up on your faith
    Love comes to those who believe it
    (And that's the way it is
    When you want it the most
    There's no easy way out
    When you're ready to go
    And your hearts left to doubt)
    Don't give up on your faith
    Love comes to those who believe it
    And that's the way it is
    That's the way it is
    That's the way it is
    Don't give up on your faith
    Love comes to those who believe it
    And that's the way it is Writer/s: ANDREAS MICHAEL CARLSSON, KRISTIAN CARL MARCUS LUNDIN, MARTIN KARL SANDBERG

  • Tricia from Rockville Centre, NyTHis song always seems to find me when I am down about failed relationships and trying to comprehend which its so hard to find someone normal when everyone around me is happy with someone! Its all about keep your chin up and going about your business and letting it happen when you least expect it! Yes the 4 letter word..LOVE!
