I believe that the stars keep shining all through the night
I believe if we just keep trying it'll be all right
I believe that some day we're gonna find our way
And I believe, in a beautiful day

I believe in lovers walking side by side
I believe that someday we'll be satisfied
I believe the angels listen, God hears us pray
And I believe, in a beautiful day

Yeah I believe, it's gonna work out okay

But not for me
And not for you

I believe I believe I believe I believe
I believe I believe I believe I believe

Ooo
Ooo

I believe there's an answer waiting when the day is done
I believe if you just keep searching you'll find someone
I believe that you and I just lost our way
And I believe, in a beautiful day

I still believe, in a beautiful day

But not for me
And not for you

I know you tried
I tried too

Sometimes all our dreams just don't come true

I believe I believe I believe I believe
I believe I believe I believe I believe

Ohhh Ohhh Ohh
Ohhh Beautiful day
Oooh Oooh Oooh
Oooh Oooh Ooh

    Song MeaningThis is a song originally by Chris Isaak, but if you compare Isaak's to the version by Melissa Hollick (melissahollick.com/videos/), Melissa Hollick's version win's hands down. Especially if you listen to it at the ending of the videogame Wolfenstein: New Order (it's the ending song after the protagonist "dies").

    My point is that song meanings are shaped by your experiences, whether actual or virtual. So, when the song comes at the end of a movie or a video game, the emotions you feel are the result of your virtual experience -- a result of you living vicariously through the character'.

    But even if the experiences are virtual, the emotions are no less real or moving than if they were based on an actual experience.

    Anyway, in this case, the song takes on meaning based on your experiences in the video game Wolfenstein: New Order. Specifically, it's about the unrequited love between William Joseph "B.J." Blazkowicz and Anya Oliwa.

    For me, the specific meaning is tied to that one scene where Anya and her resistance fighters are separated from BJ in the elevator by a tiny crack, and she says through the crack:

    "We'll get you out of there. We'll go somewhere. I believe there are still places on this earth where people can go and live happy"

    and BJ replies with:

    "I believe so too, but not for me and for you."

    (Elevator separates them).
