"She Believes In Me" as written by and Steve Gibb....
While she lays sleeping, I stay out late at night and play my songs
And sometimes all the nights can be so long
And it's good when I finally make it home, all alone
While she lays dreaming, I try to get undressed without the light
And quietly she says "how was your night?"
And I come to her and say, "it was all right," and I hold her tight

And she believes in me, I'll never know just what she sees in me
I told her someday, if she was my girl, I could change the world
With my little songs, I was wrong
But she has faith in me, and so I go on trying faithfully
And who knows, maybe, on some special night, if my song is right
I will find a way, find a way

While she lays waiting, I stumble to the kitchen for a bite
Then I see my old guitar in the night
Just waiting for me like a secret friend, and there's no end
While she lays crying, I fumble with a melody or two
And I'm torn between the things that I should do
And she says to wake her up when I am through
God, her love is true

And she believes in me, I'll never know just what she sees in me
I told her someday if she was my girl, I could change the world
With my little songs, I was wrong
But she has faith in me, and so I go on trying faithfully
And who knows maybe on some special night, if my song is right
I will find a way

While she lays, while she waits for me

    General CommentThe first verse refers to when he is a youthful and idealistic musician. He spends long nights performing but his gf/wife still stands by him.

    The Chorus is him talking in the present tense, looking back at his life. And how he promised his signigicant-other the world when he made it big and realizing that it hasn\'t happened yet.

    The next stanza is him when he is older. He sees his \"old guitar\" i.e. his first guitar he used to perform with.
    I think the line \"I\'m torn between the things that I should do\", means his heart is in being a muscian, but the reality is that he needs a real job to make a better life for his wife.

    The second chorus is almost identical to the first except in the first he says \"I will find a way, find a way...\" meaning he is still a dreamer. The second chorus says \"I will find a way, while she waits... while she waits for me\", seems a little less convincing and he seems resigned to his fate of being a starving artist.
