"All For Believing" as written by and Missy Higgins....
Pull back the shield between us,
And I'll kiss you,
Drop your defenses and come,
Into my arms.
I'm all for believing,
(I'm all for believing)

I'm all for believing if you can reveal the true colours within.

I know you blanket your mind
So much that I am blind,
But I, I see you've painted your soul
Into your guard,
I'm all for believing,
(I'm all for believing)

I need to know just how you feel,
To comfort you;
I need to find the key let me in,
Into your heart,
To find your soul.

Pull back the shield between us,
And I'll kiss you,
Drop your defenses and come,
Into my arms.

I'm all for believing, if you can reveal, the true colours within,
And say you will be there for me to hold,
When the faith grows old and life turns cold, (I'm all for believing)

When the faith grows old, (I'm all for believing) and life turns cold.
So if you're cold I will stay, maybe fate will guide the way.
I believe in what I see and baby we were meant to be,
Just believe. Just believe. Just believe.
Trust in me.

    General CommentDo you people have a different version of this song than me or is it just that no one written this before? the version of this song that i have has a completely different ending to the one written here. i have "the sound of white" album, and the ending cuts all of this

    { I'm all for believing (faith grows old)
    I'm all for believing (life turns cold)
    Just believe
    I'm all for believing (faith grows old)
    I'm all for believing (life turns cold)
    Just believe
    I'm all for believing (faith grows old)
    And life turns cold }

    and replaces it with this:

    { so if you're cold i will stay
    baby fate will guide the way
    i believe in what i see
    and baby we were meant to be
    just believe (baby we were meant to be)
    just believe (baby we were meant to be)
    just believe (baby we were meant to be)
    trust in me }

    i love this bit its my favourite bit of the song and i think it sort of changes the feeling of the song. does anyone else have this ending? weird.

    General CommentMissy wrote this song when she was 15. It's amazing to think that a 15 yr old even has feelings of that depth, let alone to be able to articulate them so concisely.
    Also, the line in the first verse is "I know you blanket your mind, so much that i am blind/But i see you've painted your soul, into your guard"
    Cheers! :)

    General CommentI love this song :)
    My take on it: its about a person who is watching someone they love fall apart, watching them hurt, watching them feel pain; they want to help but don't know how. The person they love is pulling away from them, isolating themselves, doesn't believe he/she can be helped. 'I'm all for believing', could be taken on a 'I may not be able to help, but I might. Let me in. I'm all for believing...' level. Just a thought :)

    General Commentim sure there are more 15 year olds who have actual feelings of that depth and think about things other than shopping and boys. its not too difficult to write something like that if you feel it.

    General CommentMy interpretation of this song comes from personal experiences. All for believing, is about being withdrew, because of circumstance, no matter how much you love the person, or wanted to be with them. It's about knowing if they feel the same way about you, it's about having faith in the person, and living in hope. Hoping and believing that one day you could be together, and one day they could come in and find your soul. Even when "Faith grows old" and "Life turns cold" you still have to believe in that person. The person missy is singing about is holding back, and all she wants is for the person to let her in. She doesn't say much as to why the person won't let her in, so I interpret it as they aren't alowed to be together. That's just how I look at it in relation to my life. Any thoughts?

    General CommentYeah, i remember hearing this when i would've been about 14 odd, and just being amazed that someone a year older than i could write and make such a brilliant song! Innocent_eyes01, no doubt that there are many a teenager of that age who thinks about things as deep and has feelings as strong, but to say that writing something like this song, both lyrically and musically, when you're 15 is not hard, is up there with the most ridiculous things i've heard in a while...
