"The Power to Believe I: A Cappella" as written by and Pat Mastelotto Adrian Belew....
She carries me through days of apathy,
She watches over me.

She saved my life, in a manner of speaking,
When she gave me back
The power to believe.

    General Commentany idea on who wrote it, Belew or Fripp?
    or who she is? or if it is a metaphor for something, like Man's will, rather than a female individual? is she faith? (not religious, just throwing ideas around). is she a woman, one so inspiring that gave him back the power to believe? any thoughts?

    it's dead simple, yes, but I love the way the song opens the album.
    and i can't believe there are no comments!

    Song FactThe lyrics and theme for this King Crimson song and album were inspired by Adrian's solo album OpZopTooWah and the song All Her Love Is Mine. See the lyrics below and note that the proper word in The Power To Believe post above is "washes" not "watches".

    All Her Love Is Mine

    She carries me
    Through days of apathy
    When I am a desert
    She washes over me
    And it gives me peace
    To know she accepts me
    Even in my folly

    If the spotlight falls from my face
    Or when I lose my grace
    Oh well...

    All her love is mine
    Until the end of time
    Even if the sun won't shine
    Or the money runs dry
    All her love is mine
    Until the end of time,
    Whatever happens then

    She saved my life
    In a manner of speaking
    When she gave me back
    The power to believe
    The rest of lifes' changes
    I might dread to weather
    Except that I know
    She and I will go together

    All her love is mine
    Until the end of time
    Even if the sun won't shine
    Or the money runs dry
    All her love is mine
    Until the end of time,
    Whatever happens then

    General CommentI think that "She" is the belief of a higher being like a God depending on your faith.
