lifeblood: songs: lyrics: i believe in love


when we tried to rework all of this
each to her rendition
we 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 a stick into the wheel
and now we're tumbling in a freefall
no one's gonna go unscathed
but it's not because you held back
and it's 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 would never fall that way again)
i still believe despite our differences
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
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 would 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
i believe in you
and i believe in love
