I Believe In Love

Album: Despite Our Differences (2006)
  • When we tried to rework all of this
    Each to her rendition
    Painted ourselves in a corner
    Lost for ideas blindly fishing
    For a compliment or kindness
    Just to bring us into view
    But you could not interpret me and I could not interpret you

    I remember that cold morning when the trees were black with birds
    I tried to make out some connection
    We were at a loss for words
    After all that we've been through
    I could not see giving up
    Despite the picture of our coffee growing colder in the cups

    I want to say that underneath it all you are my friend
    And the way that I fell for you I'll never fall that way again
    I still believe despite our differences that what we have's enough
    And I believe in you and I believe in love

    So we went rolling on down through the years
    Taking time off we could steal
    Until the thief of things unreconciled
    Stuck it's stick into the wheel
    Now we're tumbling in a freefall
    No one's gonna go unscathed
    But it's not because you held back and its not how I behaved

    I want to say that underneath it all you are my friend
    And the way that I fell for you I'll never fall that way again
    I still believe despite our differences that what we have's enough
    I believe in you and I believe in love

    There are avenues and supplements and books stacked on the shelf
    Labyrinths of recovery in search of our best self
    But most of what will happen now is way out of our hands
    So just let it go and see where it lands

    I want to say that underneath it all you are my friend
    And the way that I fell for you I'll never fall that way again
    I still believe despite our differences that what we have's enough
    I believe in you and I believe in love
    I believe in you and I believe in love
