"If You Believe" as written by Guy Roche and Shelly Peiken....
I close my eyes
And even when I'm sleeping
I'm alright
'Cause you are in my life

Once upon a time
I only imagined this
And now you're mine

Wished for you so hard
Pray that you'd find me
Maybe you're here today
Here to remind me

If you believe that dreams come true
There's one that's waiting here for you
'Cause I believed when I saw you

That when you want something enough
Then it can't escape your love
There is nothin' in the world that cannot be
If you believe

Everybody said that
That I was a fool to think
That we'd connect
But I couldn't get my heart out of my head

And they just didn't see
No, they just couldn't know
The feeling that you get
The places that you go

If you believe that dreams come true
There's one that's waiting there for you
'Cause I believed when I saw you

That when you want something enough
Then it can't escape your love
There is nothin' in the world that cannot be
If you believe

Never wished for material things
Never needed wind in my wings
I never wished for anything but you, you, you

I can't explain it
Someone just told me
Go where your heart is
You'll never be lonely

If you believe that dreams come true
There's one that's waiting there for you
'Cause I believed when I saw you

That when you want someone enough
Then they can't escape your love
There is nothin' in the world that cannot be
If you believe, believe believe believe

    General CommentThis song is really pretty, I think it is about a guy she saw something good in, and liked him a lot but other people never thought it would work out, but then "if you believe" and "go where your heart is you'll never be lonely" It's like having faith, in this case faith that things will work out between the 2.

    General CommentThis song was on the A Walk To Remember soundtrack, though it was not in the movie. Love the movie, love the soundtrack, love the song. This song is so beautiful, it gives me chills. It's in a genre all on its own, I can't even call this pop. It sounds kind of magical, haha. I would never have known about it if it wasn't for the movie, seeing as I've never even heard of this Rachael Lampa before. Even to this day, I still don't know who she is. She has an angelic voice, though. And she's got great control of her vocals.

    But yeah, this song is basically about believing in a seemingly impossible relationship. Having faith in it even when everyone else wants to drag you down, and laughs at your efforts. Maybe they didn't think she had a chance with the guy? Because he's "way out of her league", or that he was just so wrong for her. And so they thought she was a dreamer, a fool. Nonetheless, she stuck to what she believed in, which in this case, was LOVE. Something about unconditional love and all that jazz. Love will save the day!

    BTW: Is it not "Maybe you're here today"? as opposed to "here to say"?

    And what does she mean "You were in my life"? Is he not in her life anymore? Or did she say "You are in my life"?
