"Believe" as written by and Aaron/mushok Lewis....
I sit alone and watch the clock,
Trying to collect my thoughts,
All I think about is you.
And so I cry myself to sleep,
And hope the devil I don't meet.
In the dreams that I live through.

Believe in me, I know you've waited for so long,
Believe in me, sometimes the weak become the strong,
Believe in me, this life's not always what it seems,
Believe in me, 'cause I was made for chasing dreams.

All the smiles you've had to fake,
And all the shit you've had to take.
Just to lead us here again.
I never have the things to say,
To make it all just go away,
To make it all just disappear.

Believe in me, I know you've waited for so long,
Believe in me, sometimes the weak become the strong,
Believe in me, this life's not always what it seems,
Believe in me, 'cause I was made for chasing dreams.

It's my life,
It's my choice,
Hear my words,
Hear my voice,
And just believe.

I sit alone and watch the clock,
Trying to collect my thoughts,
And all I think about is you.

If you believe in me, life's not always what it seems
Believe in me, cause I was made for chasing dreams.

Believe in me, I know you've waited for so long,
Believe in me, sometimes the weak become the strong,
Believe in me, this life's not always what it seems,
Believe in me, 'cause I was made for chasing dreams.

    General CommentThis song is a continuation of Staind's growth not just musically, but as people. Aaron Lewis has come a LONG way since their first album "Tormented," and I just love how this shows how far he's come. He's gone from writing "I can't see through this, I can't do this anymore" (Home, Dysfunction) to "Believe in me, because I was made for chasing dreams."

    I love how Staind has always dealth with touch times in life without succumbing to them. While contemporary bads like Senses Fail and My Chemical Romance speak lovingly of things like giving in, committing suicide, etc, Staind has always been about finding a way to rise above the misery to make it to see a better day, no matter how much it hurts.

    I love Staind and have so much respect for Aaron Lewis. I hope he keeps writing songs for a long time to come.

    General CommentThis is the best song ever.
    Staind is the best band ever.


    This song is pretty much self-explainatory.

    General CommentThe first verse speaks to me because I don't like going to sleep sometimes because of the fear of where my mind will take me in my dreams. I feel like I'm going through this right now with a girl. Essentially I like her, but she's been hurt in the past and isn't willing to give it a chance. I just want to tell her to believe in me because I'm not those other guys, and to give me a chance.

    General Commenti love this song i think its talking about two people who are in love but one isnt ready and ended the relationship but still wants the other to believeve in him/her that he/she will come around to it. because it seems like hes talkign about two people who have already gone through a lot and one seemed to dissapoint the other..idno i may be way off but this is my interpretation.

    My InterpretationI sent this song to a very dear friend of mine before he died of cancer. The reason I sent this song was that I wanted him to believe in me, that I'd always be his friend, that I'd be there for him, no matter what. The lyrics spoke to me in a very powerful way. When I found out he was dying, he was all I could think about, and I did cry myself to sleep many nights. The line "I never had the things to say/To make it all just go away/To make it all just disappear" was what I personally interpreted as, I just wanted to make his cancer go away, but I couldn't. But even so, I wanted to BELIEVE, and I wanted him to BELIEVE that maybe it would go into remission, and the line "Sometimes the weak become the strong" was to encourage him, because maybe, just MAYBE, he'd somehow come out of it - the weak becoming the strong. And the line, "I was made for chasing dreams" spoke to me too, because it really was just a dream I was chasing that he'd be all right.

    General CommentEven after all these years, Aaron is still an amazng lyricist. That said, I think this is another one of Aaron's esplanitory songs which he's all to famous for. I think this one is for Vanessa. He's telling her to believe in him no matter what because he loves her and cares about her and their three daughters he always will.

    General Commentwow this is a really quality song. I love the "cause I was made for chasing dreams line". Just absolutely moving. I think this song is all about how the singer wants a girl to trust and let herself fall fully in love with him. She's been through shit in the past and, as citric said, doesn't really want to give him a chance, but he's trying to convince her he can make this time different
