Lyrics

I thought love was
only true in fairy tales.
Meant for someone else
but not for me.
Love was out to get me.
That's the way it seems.
Disappointment haunted
all my dreams.

And then I saw her face.
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I'm in love
I'm a believer
I couldn't leave her
If I tried

I thought love was
More or less a given thing
But the more I gave the less
I got, oh yeah
What's the use in trying
All you get is pain
When I wanted sunshine
I got rain

And then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I'm in love
I'm a believer
I couldn't leave her
If I tried

What's the use in trying
All you get is pain
When I wanted sunshine
I got rain

And then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I'm in love
I'm a believer
I couldn't leave her
If I tried

Then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
Now I'm a believer
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Now I'm a believer
And then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I'm a believer


Reprise Version

Come on y'all

Then I saw her face (ha ha)
Now I'm a believer (listen)
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I'm in love (ooh ahh)
I'm a believer
I couldn't leave her if I tried

Then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer (hey)
Not a trace (uh yeah)
Of doubt in my mind (one more time)
I'm in love I'm a believer (come on)

I believe I believe I believe I believe
I believe I believe I believe I believe I believe hey
(I'm a believer) Y'all sing it with me

I believe (I'm a believer) I believe (people in the back)
I believe (I'm a believer) I believe (see)

I believe I believe
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ah ha
Oh that's fun oh oh
I can't breathe I can't breathe
