"Believe" as written by Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler....
I don't ever want to believe
I don't ever want to believe yeah
That when we die
We all leave

Your innocence is not forgotten
I hope you know that where you are I wish you well
I hope you sleep in a perfect memory
You know it's hard I tried
I could never say goodbye

I don't ever wanna believe
I don't ever wanna believe yeah
That when we die
We all leave
I don't ever wanna let go
I hope that you see yeah
That there's a part of you that's left inside of me

Yesterday just took me hostage
Yesterday locked me away from any truth
And now tomorrow's here without you
I know it's hard I've tried
I could never say goodbye

I don't ever wanna believe
I don't ever wanna believe yeah
That when we die
We all leave
I don't ever wanna let go
I hope that you see yeah
That there's a part of you that's left inside of me

I try to push you away
But you never push back
You know I'll never forget you
I never thought I'd say that
You made a mess out of me

I don't ever wanna believe
I don't ever wanna believe yeah
That when we die
That we all leave

I don't ever wanna believe
I don't ever wanna believe yeah
That when we die
That we all leave

I don't ever wanna let go
I hope that you see yeah

That there?s a part of you that?s left inside of me [Repeat: x4]

    General CommentAlthough this could be taken literally to be some what of a eulogy to a dead friend or love, I feel like it also could be towards the death of love itself, or a relationship.
    "Your innocence is not forgotten
    I hope you know that where you are
    I wish you well
    I hope you sleep in the perfect memory"
    Something to the point of I hope you don't forget the way we were, and that the writer of the song still holds the other person in high regards.

    Or it could literally just be about someone who died.

    General CommentAt a November 2008 concert in NY, Tyson told the audience a story of how three-and-a-half years ago he had a CD with two songs; one of them being the now infamous hit "Move Along," which he gave to two guys from their record label to listen to. He played it for them and one said, “You did it, kid. This is the song.”

    Sometime after, this same friend from the label passed away. Ritter said for the new album, he was striving to write something special, something more than just pop music for his friend. Closing the night with “Believe,” Ritter said he really believed his friend was listening “up there.”

    General CommentI believe this song is about those days where you think about death and come to the conclusion that everything just turns black for eternity and everyone forgets about you. It kind of reminds me of "Easy/Lucky/Free" by Bright Eyes.
