JULIANA THEORY - Do You Believe Me?

When you tried to build me up with the wrong words
All it did was kill me
And when you said you trusted in all that I feel
I never quite believed you
And when you tried to help me out
By telling me how we should be
I disagreed

So hold me up
And you should see
You’re not supposed to be my enemy
I know your side
I understand
But you can let me feel
It’s safe in my hands
You’re every word is full of doubt
I’ve never had a way ‘til now to let it out
If this is how it’s gotta be
It will never be easy

You can make this very easy
If you can show me you believe me
You could kill me
You can kill me
Or you can make this very easy

So let me breathe
Just let me be
I’d show you more
Than you could ever hope to see
Intentions are the same I find
Bad, even if they are I still need room to shine
So give it time and give it space
This isn’t just a slap across your face
If this is how it’s gotta be
I will never speak freely

You can make this very easy
If you can show me you believe me
You could kill me
You can kill me
Or you can make this very easy

Wont you believe in me?

    General Commenti hated 4/5 on the newest JT ep.. and i was so disappointed with the new stuff they were coming out with because the 2 previous albums (understand this is a dream and emotion is dead) are fucking incredible.. but i love this song. i hope the rest of their new full length is this good. i reeeeeeeally hope.

    General CommentI live in Canada but My friends and i are huge fans and we went down to the states to see a show and we heard a lot of the stuff off of love it actually sounds awesome, the album comes out oct. 22nd. i heard the new songs though thru the street team on their website and you can download bad quality versions of all of them. They are an awesome band! Where i live ina big city no one knows of them, are they big where all of you are from?

    General CommentOne of the nonreal people I know analyzed this song, and I'm not going to be able to do it half as well as he did, so I'll just post a few thoughts.

    It seems to be aimed at someone the singer has known for a long, long time--most like since childhood: "I've never had a way till now to let it out" seems to imply an old relationship in which the singer is accustomed to be under the influence of the person he's singing to, and has finally found a way to express how he really feels.

    Some people just don't know how much they hurt us. Or they don't care. Either way, they're too busy trying to smash us into the mold they think we should fit into (most often a copy of their own selves) to see us as an actual *person*.

    This is my new favorite Juliana Theory song. ^_^ It used to be Into the Dark, until I found this one.
