Come to me now
And lay your hands over me
Even if it's a lie
Say it will be alright

And I shall believe
I'm broken in two
And I know you're on to me
That I only come home

When I'm so all alone
But I do believe

That not everything is gonna be the way
You think it ought to be
It seems like every time I try to make it right
It all comes down on me

Please say honestly you won't give up on me
And I shall believe
And I shall believe

Open the door
And show me your face tonight
I know it's true
No one heals me like you
And you hold the key

Never again
Would I turn away from you
I'm so heavy tonight
But your love is alright
And I do believe

That not everything is gonna be the way
You think it ought to be
It seems like every time I try to make it right
It all comes down on me

Please say honestly you won't give up on me
And I shall believe
I shall believe
And I shall believe

that not everything is gonna be the way
You think it ought to be
It seems like every time I try to make it right
It all comes down on me

Please say honestly you won't give up on me
And I shall believe
I shall believe
I shall believe
I shall believe
I shall believe
And I shall believe

Please say honestly you won't give up on me
And I shall believe
I shall believe
I shall believe
I shall believe
I shall believe
I shall believe
I shall believe
I shall believe
I shall believe
I shall believe
I shall believe
I shall believe
I shall believe
I shall believe
I shall believe

    General Comment:Any person can relate to this lyric:

    "Please say honestly
    You won't give up on me"

    I for one. And this song was given to me by a dear friend of mine, and it always reminds me of her.

    Beautiful song.

    General Comment:the first time I heard this song was when my teacher played it for us in my 7th grade religion class. so the first time I heard it, I was listening from a religious perspective.

    this is a beautiful song, one of her finest. it's about finding hope and having someone to help you through a rough point in your life. it really means a lot to me.

    General Comment:I love this song! I heard it at the end of the Roswell episode "The End of the World" and thought it was very beautiful and very sad.

    General Comment:I hear these words...."even if it's a lie, say it will be alright and i shall believe" knowing it's over, but clinging to what you can't let go. desperately searching for anything of comfort. looking to false security for a moment of warmth. at least this is what i understand the song to mean...

    General Comment:It's impossible for me to pick a favorite Sheryl tune, but this one is definitely up there. I feel such a strong connection to it. I think it's essentially about finding something in your life to put a little faith in, whether it's another person, an idea, or whatever. The yearning in Sheryl's voice is amazing.

    General Comment:You guys are so right about that Roswell moment. I didn't even watch Roswell more than 3 times, but I watched this episode-- and I was seriously so moved. I had heard the song before, but it was just the saddest thing. Those WB shows have a way of picking excellent music. Now when I hear this song, I will think sadly about those poor Roswell kids.
