Believe in me for goodness sake, for goodness sake.
Believe in me for goodness sake, for goodness sake.
The trust that you take, the trust that you ache.
The love that you hate holding fear as you fate.
The movement you make, the lies that you fake...
The love that you hate. The love that you hate.
Believe. Believe is seeing, just shut your eyes.
Repeat. Nothing comes easy.

Remembering that look in your eyes, I swear I saw you.
I swear I saw you.
With my back against the wall.
I wish I knew you from before, from before.
From before.
With my back against the wall,
With my back against the wall,
With my back against the wall,
With my back against the wall,
I wish I knew you from before, let's make no mistake.
I wish I knew you from before.

When you say those words mean forever.
Make no mistake, you make no mistakes.
Somehow I feel you truly meant never,
With chances I take you were my mistake.

When you say forever, forever is too long.
When you say never, I believe you.
When you say forever, forever is too long.
When you say never, I believe you.
Believing is seeing

    General CommentSo I have a crush on a girl that's married and this song reminds me of her alot. What that in mind, here's my interpretation of the song:

    "Believe in me for goodness sake, for goodness sake.
    "Believe in me for goodness sake, for goodness sake.
    The trust that you take, the trust that you ache.
    The love that you hate holding fear as you fate."

    This passage, to me, is trying to get noticed by a woman he thinks likes him. He hates the feeling of love, especially in this case because it is unrequited.

    "The movement you make, the lies that you fake...
    The love that you hate. The love that you hate."

    This part he is talking about the woman who is teasing him in a way, but he recognizes that it's all lies. She doesn't really like him.

    "Believe. Believe is seeing, just shut your eyes.
    Repeat. Nothing comes easy."

    He still wants to believe that someday he'll be with her.

    "Remembering that look in your eyes, I swear I saw you.
    I swear I saw you.
    With my back against the wall."

    He's having a flashback here to when he thought this woman liked him because of the sings she gave him. He was in a vulnerable position then and never pursued anything with her.

    "I wish I knew you from before, from before.
    From before.
    With my back against the wall,
    With my back against the wall,
    With my back against the wall,
    With my back against the wall,
    I wish I knew you from before, let's make no mistake.
    I wish I knew you from before."

    To me, this can be interpreted two ways. He wishes he knew her from before because then he would have been the one she was with. you can also look at it as a regret from not trying in the past when he had a chance.

    "When you say those words mean forever.
    Make no mistake, you make no mistakes.
    Somehow I feel you truly meant never,
    With chances I take you were my mistake."

    Back in the present, he's trying to get with her but she is taken. He can see in her that she is content with her life and doesn't need him. She will never be with him.

    "When you say forever, forever is too long.
    When you say never, I believe you.
    When you say forever, forever is too long.
    When you say never, I believe you.
    Believing is seeing"

    He is still holding on to hope, but deep down knows she will never love him.




    So that's it. There's my over-analysis of an awesome song.
