Believe!

“Believe” by Trans-Siberian Orchestra
(lyrics follow)

So after all these one night stands
You’ve ended up with heart in hand
A child alone
On your own
Retreating

Regretful for the things you’re not
And all the things you haven’t got
Without a home
A heart of stone lies bleeding

And for all the roads you followed
And for all you did not find
And for all the dreams you had to leave behind

I am the way
I am the light
I am the dark inside the night

I hear your hopes
I feel your dreams
And in the dark I hear your screams

Don’t turn away
Just take my hand
And when you make your final stand

I’ll be right there
I’ll never leave
And all I ask of you is
Believe

Your childhood eyes were so intense
While bartering your innocence
For bits of string
The grown-up wings you needed

But when you had to add them up
You found that they were not enough
To get you in
And pay for sins
Repeated

And for all the years you borrowed
And for all the tears you hide
And for all the fears you had to keep inside

I am the way
I am the light
I am the dark inside the night

I hear your hopes
I feel your dreams
And in the dark I hear your screams

Don’t turn away
Just take my hand
And when you make your final stand

I’ll be right there
I’ll never leave
And all I ask of you is
Believe

I never wanted to know
Never wanted to see
I wasted my time
‘Til time wasted me

I never wanted to go
Always wanted to stay
‘Cause the person I am
Are the parts that I play

So I plot and I plan
Hope and I scheme
To the lure of a night
Filled with unfinished dreams

And I’m holding on tight
To a world gone astray
If they charge me for years
I can’t pay
Yeah

I am the way
I am the light
I am the dark inside the night

I hear your hopes
I feel your dreams
And in the dark I hear your screams

Don’t turn away
Just take my hand
And when you make your final stand

I’ll be right there
I’ll never leave
And all I ask of you is

Believe!

  1. That is the first time I’ve heard that song. When you posted yesterday I couldn’t get through it. The chorus had me envisioning the little girl, the one we all long to connect with, the one whose childhood was shattered. But today I found a moment to sit quietly and listen to it. Thank you, really thank you, because for the first time in a long time I could see she is happy, she is ok. And her message was very much the chorus of this song – I’ll be right here, I’ll never leave, and all I ask of you is believe – in me and our connection.

    1. Wow! That is an incredible insight! Your making me cry. I listened to this song last night over and over again and ended up with my soul weeping in my husbands arms for at least a half an hour. With the chorus, I often think of a friend being there, something we all long for. I never thought about it as being there for the little girl inside of me. This is what she longs for from me! Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts! I am glad it touched you as well!

      1. I’m laughing because I cried too! It’s interesting because I never think of friends as being there. I have great friends, but none who get what we’ve been through/are going through. I had a meditation recently where the people who showed up were all the survivors who blog. My goal for 2016 is to connect more with my soul, more often. And when I picture my soul I picture that little girl. She’s on a swing in a tree and when I listened to this song that is where I saw her. She even sang a little.

        1. I just now discovered your comment in my trash folder!!!! I don’t know how that happened!

          So I am sorry I did not reply sooner! I am glad this song spoke to you as well. Your imagery is beautiful! I found a rare friend who wants to understand and is very supportive. You are right, usually it is hard to find this kind of support from someone who has not gone through the same thing. But there are some rare jewels out there. I wish the same for you!
