"I Don't Believe In Love" as written by Geoffery W Tate and Christopher Degarmo....
I awoke on impact
Under surveillance from the camera eye
Searching high and low
The criminal mind found at the scene of the crime
Handcuffed and blind, I didn't do it
She said she loved me
I guess I never knew
But do we ever, ever really know?
She said she'd meet me on the other side
But I knew right then, I'd never find her

I don't believe in love
I never have, I never will
I don't believe in love
It's never worth the pain that you feel

No more nightmares, I've seen them all
From the day I was born
They've haunted my every move
Every open hand's there to push and shove
No time for love it doesn't matter
She made a difference
I guess she had a way
Of making every night seem bright as day
Now I walk in shadows, never see the light
She must have lied 'cause she never said goodbye

I don't believe in love
I never have, I never will
I don't believe in love
I'll just pretend she never was real
I don't believe in love
I need to forget her face, I see it still
I don't believe in love
It's never worth the pain that you feel

No chance for contact
There's no raison d'etre
My only hope is one day I'll forget
The pain of knowing what can never be
With or without love it's all the same to me

I don't believe in love
I never have, I never will
I don't believe in love
I'll just pretend she never was real
I don't believe in love
I never have, I never will
I don't believe in love
It's never worth the pain that you feel, feel
The pain that you feel, feel

    General CommentThe female character in the story, Mary, just died. Nikky believes it was suicide I think, though the songs themselves never actually say how she was killed. But Nikky goes into a depression, I mean alot of us can relate to this type of thing. We've all been in love and lost someone, maybe not through death but just a bad break up.

    General CommentNo comments on this song? Geoff Tate's vocals shake my soul when I hear it. Although it's part of a larger story, on it's own this song tells its own story. It's about the character being let down by everyone in his life that he cared about.

    General CommentNo it wasn't. She was brainwashed by Dr. X to kill herself.

    MemoryMy father, mother and sister hate this song; it was always on repeat whenever I got dumped by a girlfriend. And after about hearing it 20 times per hour the got really fed up with it :D

    MemoryThis song has totally influenced how I feel about the concept of linear, monogamous, soul-mate, romantic love in the mainstream sense.

    "I'll just pretend she never was real" was what I did when my best friend of 9 years broke up with me. Because friend-breakups are just as bad as relationship-breakups, sometimes.
