"All I Believe In" as written by Romeo William Stodart, Amadou Bagayoko and Mariam Doumbia....
I may never ever find an answer
I may never ever find a cure
I may never risk another lover
Oh, believe me.


I may never ever walk on water
I may never ever walk away
I may never get the chance to tell you
Oh, believe me.


Oh my heart, I want you to be strong, I need you to be all I believe in
Oh my heart, I want you to be strong, I need you to be all I believe in


I may never wait to see tomorrow
I may never live to seize today
I may never ever ask forgiveness
Oh, believe me.



I may never ever rise above you
I may stumble as I lose my way
I may never find the words to tell you
Oh, believe me.


Oh my heart, I want you to be strong, I need you to be all I believe in
Oh my heart, I want you to be strong, I need you to be all I believe in


[Tribal Singing: Verse 2x Chorus 4x]


I may never ever find an answer
I may never ever find a cure
I may never risk another lover
Oh, believe me.


[Tribal Singing: Verse 1x Chorus 2x]



Oh my heart, I want you to be strong, I need you to be all I believe in
Oh my heart, I want you to be strong, I need you to be all I believe in

    General Commentthe only song i heard during twilight new moon that had me saying who is that? i did a lot of searching to find this song. i like the flow of melody. it just sounds so pretty and i like the tribal parts too. wish the site had the tribal lyrics or someone could provide a translation.

    i think the song is about a person acknowledging his or her imperfections,or flaws and wanting someone they love to fill in all the gaps, love them them despite those flaws.be a savior in a way. and in that regard it fits in the story of new moon perfectly. in the scene where this song is played bella comes to jacob with bikes that are as damaged as her heart and in the process of fixing her bikes he helps her mend some of the damage caused by edward leaving.

    General CommentFYI, the "tribal" bits are sung by African singers called Amadou and Mariam. A while back, Romero went to Africa to collaborate with some musicians there (think it was part of a project whose name escapes me) and I think this is the result :)

    I bloody love TMN, they make beautiful music.

    My InterpretationI don't see this song as being about asking another person to make them whole.

    I felt it was more like a song to themselves acknowledging that there's a lot of ways that the speaker is imperfect - every verse depicts a situation where the speaker may not be successful or depicts a shortcoming.

    From there, I feel the speaker is acknowledging that these imperfections may have led someone to leave them or they have simply become so extremely disappointed by the world they have nearly nothing left "to believe in".

    Still, the chorus is more optimistic as I interpreted it to be more of a hopeful note or request to the speaker's inner self or inner strength - "Oh my heart, I want you to be strong, I need you to be all I believe in". This I took as the speaker admitting "yes, everything is disappointing right now" but there is one thing left that hasn't fallen apart and that's him/herself.
