"I Believe In You" as written by and Daniel Roland Lanois....
From where I was standing
It was hard to see, hard to see
But what has always been
Will forever be, forever be

And now you're running down my spine
Like a waterfall, like a waterfall
I want to write your name
On every wall, on every wall

But I believe in you
But I believe in you
But I believe in you
Yes, I do
I believe in you

Up and down the river
In a little boat, a little boat
All I need is you and a castle
All made of hope, all made of hope

I can walk through the doors of time
Scale any wall and cross any line
I can send any thought to the end of the finger
And burn any knot with a kiss

But I believe in you
But I believe in you
But I believe in you
Yes, I do
And I believe in you

From the bottom of the room
To the top of the leaf, the top of the leaf
I can drink maple water
Any time I believe, any time I believe

I was frozen, I was going
In a blade of grass
I'm running out of honey
I'm living in the past

But I believe in you
'Cause I believe in you
I believe in you
Yes, I do
I believe in you
Yes, I do
I believe in you
'Cause I believe in you
I believe in, I believe in, I believe in you, yeah
I believe in you
Yeah, I believe in you

    My InterpretationWhen you're truly devoted to someone, it brings out all the positive vibrations and power to make a change in your life. But it isn't enough. We need a feedback from the person we are devoted to. We need a green light or any sign that our participation is welcome.

    In the song, at first, she is willing to let everyone know how true her love is, how special that person is for her.

    All that she asks is a hope. Something that'll hold her onto that feeling (devotion) she feels inside.
    In one specific moment she's in denial, she tries to convince herself that she still believes in him...THEN it comes to this:

    " I was frozen, I was going
    in a blade of grass
    I'm running out of honey
    I'm living in the past"

    She's realizes that her will to love this person isn't enough, but just for a moment. She's running out of honey (it can be translated: not enough time/hope/strength/love...etc), but she's still going, she's not giving up on him, even though she knows that things can't change much, because "she's living in the past hanging on the blade of grass" (heart on a sleave - would do anything for love)

    It's a fight. For him, against herself. She's losing a fight, but not giving up on it. Spunky! :)
