close your eyes
until the sunlight dies
in your head a thousand stars
through the darkness you can see love light
and if they steal your light
your heart is still in mine

i want to believe in you and i heard you
your song, you sing, a truth is no other
i want to believe in you, dear

of someday...

there's a life i hide
but i try to disguise
and i could take you a million miles away

i want to believe in you and i heard you
your song, you sing, a truth is no other
i want to believe in you, dear

on sunday i made amends
of all my mistakes
may godspeed be with you

and i...
i want to believe in you and i heard you
your song, you sing, a truth is no other
i want to believe in you and i heard you
your song, you sing, a truth is no other
i want to believe in you and i heard you
your song, you sing, a truth, a lover
i want to believe in you and i heard you
your song, you sing, a truth, is no other
i want to believe in you, dear
of someday...

on sunday i make amends
for all my mistakes
may godspeed be with you

    General CommentI think this song is sung by someone who hasn't met "the one" yet and wants to believe that that person is out there somewhere. So he sings this love song to someone he doesn't even know but feels in his heart that they will find each other... someday...

    General Comment"there's a life i hide
    but i try to disguise"
    reminds me of a gay person trying to hide their sexuality.

    General Commenti think its just about a man who has not been able to fully love this woman. he could take her a million miles away but for some reason is not that person because of the life he hides.

    General Commenti love the SPs and this is an underrated track...the music around "may godspeed be with you" is really moving. Its all about hope which is a bit unusual for them, but theyve done it so well maybe they should have done some more?

    General CommentI just have to say this: Corgan is sooooo talented.
    This song is soo well written, very very moving.
    Although I see the hope theme in it, there's also an underlying feling of regret, maybe for not being able to give a loved one the attention they deserved.
    Beautiful song.

    General Commentum, Corgan didn't actually write this one. James Iha did. it's still a great song though. anyways, that's what i think...

    General CommentIt's a beautiful moving song....
    when i read joeprog comment I would say that the song is by James Iha...
    The same way as Take Me Down...
    Another great song... :)

    General CommentJames Iha proves he's a great songwriter yet again with this song.

    To me the line
    "there's a life i hide
    but try to disguise"
    is about not being who you really are for the person you're after, but being what you think they'd want instead. It's like he's coming to a realization that it won't work especially in the part where he sings...
    "I want to believe in you and I heard you
    your song you sing a truth is no other
    I want to believe in you, dear...
    of someday
    on sunday i make amends
    for all my mistakes
    may godspeed be with you"

    down to the "godspeed be with you" part it sort of sounds like he's bidding his love farewell.

    but all of this is just my humble opinion. Beautiful song.

    General CommentI agree with Jewelly Bug. By the line "theres a life i hide..." sounds like he is in pain but he is trying to believe that he will soon meet that someone and it will go away.
