"I Believe" as written by David Hall Hodges and Christina Judith Perri....
I believe if I knew where I was going I’d lose my way
I believe that the words that he told you are not your grave
I know that we are not the weight of all our memories
I believe in the things that I am afraid to say

Hold on, hold on

I believe in the lost possibilities you can see
And I believe that the darkness reminds us where light can be
I know that your heart is still beating, beating, darling
I believe that you fell so you would land next to me

'Cause I have been where you are before
And I have felt the pain of losing who you are
And I have died so many times, but I am still alive

I believe that tomorrow is stronger than yesterday
And I believe that your head is the only thing in your way
I wish that you could see your scars turn into beauty
I believe that today it’s okay to be not okay

Hold on, hold on

'Cause I have been where you are before
And I have felt the pain of losing who you are
And I have died so many times, but I am still alive

This is not the end of me, this is the beginning
This is not the end of me, this is the beginning
This is not the end of me, this is the beginning
This is not the end of me, this is the beginning
(Hold on) This is not the end of me, this is the beginning
(Hold on) This is not the end of me, this is the beginning
(Hold on, I am still alive) this is not the end of me, this is the beginning
(Hold on, I am still alive) this is not the end of me, this is the beginning
(Hold on, I am still alive) this is not the end of me, this is the beginning
(Hold on, I am still alive) this is not the end of me, this is the beginning
(Hold on, I am still alive) this is not the end of me, this is the beginning
(Hold on, I am still alive) this is not the end of me, this is the beginning

    My InterpretationChristina Perri wrote this song for the To Write Love On Her Arms shows. It's a non-profit organization which aims to present hope for people struggling with addiction, depression, self injury, and thoughts of suicide while also investing directly into treatment and recovery.
    So this song is for the people of that organization with Christina basically saying I believe you can get through it, I know what its like, I've been there before, but I'm alive. It's not the end, its the beginning so keep holding on because things will get better.

    My InterpretationThe first thing that comes to my mind when I hear the lyrics is a person talking to her best friend who is sad because her boyfriend or someone like that has left her. The girl tells her friend that she has suffered the pain before and is trying to give her support, to give her hope. She tries to tell her that these experiences make us who we are. The song is very motivational and I find that my friends feel better when I sing it to them. Christina is such an awesome lyricist.
