"Believe In Dreams" as written by Sameer Bhattacharya, James Culpepper, Jared Hartmann, Lacey Nicole Sturm and Kirkpatrick Seals....
I know
Days will come and go
But maybe I'll grow old
But I will die

For now
Is it worth it to be sad
If it's harder to be glad
To be alive

But the trouble I have caused
I wonder
Where do I belong
Is it here

Believe in dreams
You love so much
Let the passion of your heart
Make them real
And tell
All the ones you love
Everything about the love you feel

Laugh about the past
And secretly
Wish we could go back
And save the child

As I look around this room
Seeing worried eyes I know
It's time we cannot buy
Was this worth the time to write
Was this worth the time to write

Believe in dreams
I believe in dreams
I believe in dreams
I believe in you

Believe in dreams
You love so much
Let the passion of your heart
Make them real
And tell
All the ones you love
Anything and everything you feel

Believe in dreams
Believe in dreams

    General Commentthis song is giving advice. There may be things to regret, there are times when things are hard in life, there are times when you are the pain is someone's life, but go ahead and believe in your dreams. that is what will take you places. Dont take time for granted..if you love someone, TELL THEM. now. you may not get another chance.

    also, all of you who say that the "save the child" lyrics are about an aborted baby or whatnot...no...i do believe you are wrong. You must think about the theme surrounding the whole band..GOD. live for God. The lyric means, We secretly wish we could go back and save jesus from being crucified. even though this is a major theme of christianity, when we really stop and think about how much pain Jesus went through when he was crucified, we want to go back and save the child of God.

    General CommentTo me this song is about a relationship that went bad. The girl was pregnant but when she knew they weren;t together anymore she had an abortion. "Wish we could go back, And Save a child" She wishes the relationship would have never fallen apart just so she could have kept her kid. The whole song is about dreaming what it would be like if they were still together.
    Well thats what i think.,..Come on prove me wrong people

    General CommentIt seems to me like it is about a child that died and they wish they could go back and save them. Perhaps it is a real child or she is speaking of herself and what she has become. Also to And tell "all the ones you love, Anything and everything you feel" its like tell them before they die or you die.

    General CommentThis song was written by one of the guys in the band...Jared maybe? I can't remember.

    But anyway, I think it's maybe a message he wanted to send to Lacey about her life.

    General CommentI think that it's saying believe in yourself, believe in your dreams, don't waste your life living in the past...even though i wish i could go back and save the child that i was, tell her it would all be ok, i can't buy time...so I will move forward.

    General CommentBeautiful song. It's pretty self-explanatory. But, anyway, it's saying that you should believe in your dreams because, one day, you're going to be older and wish that you could have done it. So, do it now. Believe in yourself and you'll go far.

    "Secretly,
    Wish we could go back,
    And save the child..."

    ^I think that's about Lacey or someone else wishing she could go back and save herself somehow or just reassure her younger self. But, unfortunately, she can't.

    General CommentI think this song is just telling people to live for their dreams and to not waste the time you have with your loved ones. It is about wanting to go back and change the child you were, even though you know you can't. Even though you may have caused trouble in the past, you can be a better person now.

    General Commentsave the child....i take it as someone grew up too fast, and lost the innocence of their mind or otherwise. life gets uglier the more i see of it, but children dont seem to notice the ugly until its shoved down their throat

    General CommentI know, the days will come and go,
    But baby I’ll grow old, but I will die.
    For now, is it worth it to be sad, if it’s harder to be glad to be alive?
    For the trouble I have caused
    I wonder,
    Where do I belong?

    Is it here?

    (I think she's confessed and wondering if she really belongs anywhere after all the pain she's put people through.)

    I laugh about the past-
    Secretly,
    (She finds what she did when she was younger funny, yet she doesn't want people to know it. She could be afraid of what they might say, or do.)

    Wish we could go back,
    And save the child
    (I guess maybe Lacey is saying that she wishs she could go back in time and save herself as a child, to try to keep herself from doing drugs, and becoming someone better)

    As I look around this room,
    See the worried eyes I know
    It’s time I cannot buy
    Was this worth the time to rise?
    Was this worth the time to rise?

    (I'm not really sure about this one, but I think she finds it kinda pointless to be telling people about herself cause of what might be to come.)
