SHE BELIEVES IN ME

While she lays sleeping

I stay out late at night and play my songs.

And sometimes, all the nights can be so long.

And its good, when I finally make it home.

All alone while she lays dreaming.

I try to get undressed without the light.

Then, quietly, she says, how was your night?

And I come to her and say, it was alright

And then I hold her tight.

 

And she believes in me

Ill never know just what she sees in me

I told her, someday, if she was my girl

I could change the world with my little songs

I was wrong

But she has faith in me

And so I go on trying faith for me

And who knows, maybe, on some special night

If my song is right, I will find the way find the way.  

 

While she lays waiting

I stumble to the kitchen for a bite

Then I see my old guitar in the night

Just waiting for me like a secret friend

And theres no end while she lays crying

I fumble with the melody or tune

Then, I torn between the things that I should do

Then she says to wake her up when Im through.

God in love, its true

 

And she believes in me

Ill never know just what she sees in me

I told her, someday, if she was my girl

I could change the world with my little songs

I was wrong

But she has faith in me

And so I go on trying faith for me

And who knows, maybe, on some special night

If my song is right, I will find the way

While she waits for me - while she waits for me.

While she waits for me - while she waits for me.
