Lyrics

Believe

Ohhhh
Believe...

Don't be sad
Cause it can't be that bad
There's nothing to fear
Your broken heart will mend
And new love will come to you, shining through

Look, look at the stars
And you've got to visualize
There's someone to heal your heart
I know it's really true
I know they are waiting
Baby, waiting only, only for you
Just have faith, keep your head up
And won't you go for it

Believe in your dreams
Cause you can make them come true
Just let yourself go
You've got to believe
That happy times will come, just wait and see

Please just remember
When you're feeling down and blue
There is some who, wishing for
Someone just like you

Believe in your dreams
The world is waiting for you
It's all up to you
You've got to believe
It will be okay, another day

Believe in your dreams
Life is not what it seems
Just try to believe
Just make up your mind
Love will take you there, take you there
