"Make me a believer" as written by and Luther/adderley Vandross....
Fill me in, turn me inside out
Sometimes I feel like just letting go and screaming out loud

Fill me up, sometimes it's so messed up
I feel like giving up but it's not far now

But it feels so far away,
Can't you pull me up and

Make me a believer, let you down
For the first time comes undone
If you let me, so don't put me down
And don't let this feeling slip away

Let me in, these walls are closing in
Sick of these holds I'm in
Stuck outside and looking back in

Close me up, these hands have had enough
I feel like giving up, but it's not far now

Away, I'm sorry, I'm sorry
And tonight ignore me, ignore me,
You know I, I'm sorry, so sorry,
And I'm sorry

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who is going through a hard time in life. All their troubles are finally piling up on them and they want to believe in God. Maybe they've seen others who are happy despite their problems and want this feeling to but just has so much trouble actually believing.

    General CommentIt sounds to me like he's writing from the point of view of someone who feels they've let God down. He feels guilty and is struggling to change.

    Cool song.

    General CommentWell yea, he feels he let somebody down and is begging now for forgiveness. Maybe it's God who was let down by this man, but maybe it's just his friend or a relative, who knows?

    General CommentTHE MEANING OF THE SONG IS OBVIOUS! IT IS ABOUT SOMEONE WHO IS ASKING GOD FOR FORGIVENESS AND THEY WANT TO BE MADE A BELIEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ( sorry about the caps i get frustrated when people are confused about the meaning of a song when the meaning is written all over the name of it)
