"Believe In Me" as written by and Robert Schwartzman....
I can never win with you
I try but you don't let me through
What's the point in fighting when we're down?

I know I've been acting strange
But wait don't leave I know I'll change
We're wasting all our time together now

I don't know what to say
Every word just makes you turn away
And I don't know what to do
Every day I want to be with you
Well I've lost the battle and I'm losing the war
And I keep on asking myself what for
If you believe in fate and destiny
Then open your eyes and believe in me

I call up and apologize
But you just think its one big lie
Don't you know you're pushing me away?

We've been through so much together
You can't tell me the past will never
Mean a thing it's more than a memory

'Cause everyone I see around
Tells me that I'm such a fool
For making you my punching bag
When things really weren't that bad

I've lost you now
I've lost you now
But I don't know how to get you back
I'm not myself
I'm not myself
I've gotta get us back on track

    General Commenti love songs that i can relate to according to the lyrics, which is why i like this song.

    however, most people would use this song to relate to their love life but i relate this to my friend. i care about my friend so much but i feel that we're drifting, so,

    Well, I don't know what to say
    Every word just makes you turn away
    And I don't know what to do
    Every day I wanna be with you


    great song (:

    General CommentThis song works better when listening to "What For" as well. The pair are my favorite from the album.


    "I can never win with you
    I try, but you don't let me through
    Well, what's the point in fighting when we're done?"

    This is a relationship that has already ended, and the singer is attempting to mend it in some way.


    "Well, I don't know what to say
    Every word just makes you turn away
    And I don't know what to do
    Every day I wanna be with you
    Well, I've lost the battle and I'm losing the war
    And I keep on asking myself what for
    If you believe in fate and destiny
    Well, then open your eyes and believe in me
    Believe in me
    Believe in me"

    The singer attempts to apologize and make amends, but it only seems to be pushing their love interest further away. No matter what he does, she seems to grow more distant from him with every move he makes. The song "What For" is referred to in the chorus, letting us know that the two songs are dealing with the same relationship. This lets us know that "What For" isn't actually a song contemplating a breakup, but rather regreting it after the fact. The singer almost attempts to warn himself before he makes the mistake, despite it already having happened.

    "I call up and apologize
    But you just think it's one big lie
    Well, don't know you're pushing me away?"

    She either doesn't believe he's sincere, or is afraid of having her heart broken by him again. Meanwhile the singer is slowly losing hope after every rejection.

    "We've been through so much together
    You can't tell me the past will never mean a thing
    It's more than a memory"

    He's hoping she'll remember all of the positive times in their relationship, and relaize there is some good left between them.


    "'Cause every one I see around
    Tells me that I'm such a fool
    For making you my punching bag
    When things really weren't that bad"

    He didn't treat her well at the end of the relationship, which he regrets, because things could have easily been mended in comparison to his current standings with her. He believes breaking up with her was an overreaction to minor problems.


    "I've lost you now
    I've lost you now
    (I've lost you now)
    And I don't know how to get you back
    I'm not myself
    I'm not myself
    I gotta get us back on track"

    He's realized that she will never forgive him and there is nothing he can do to change that. The last two lines indicate he wants to move on if he can't have her.
