Songtekst van de dag #1: I Believe In You

De komende tijd zal er een nieuwe dagelijkse serie op deze blog verschijnen. Dit kunnen teksten van Dylan zijn, maar ook van andere artiesten. Vaak is het voor mij al goed als een nummer een goede tekst heeft, de rest is bijzaak. Soms zal er een analyse van de tekst bijzitten, soms spreekt de tekst voor zich. Deze dag zal dat 'I Believe In You' zijn, deze tekst sluit feilloos aan bij hoe ik soms over mijn geloof in God denk.

They ask me how I feel
And if my love is real
And how I know I'll make it through
And they, they look at me and frown
They'd like to drive me from this town
They don't want me around
'Cause I believe in you.

They show me to the door
They say don't come back no more
'Cause I don't be like they'd like me to
And I, I walk out on my own
A thousand miles from home
But I don't feel alone
'Cause I believe in you.

I believe in you even through the tears and the laughter
I believe in you even though we be apart
I believe in you even on the morning after
Oh, when the dawn is nearing
Oh, when the night is disappearing
Oh, this feeling is still here in my heart.

Don't let me drift too far
Keep me where you are
Where I will always be renewed
And that which you've given me today
Is worth more than I could pay
And no matter what they say
I believe in you.

I believe in you when winter turn to summer
I believe in you when white turn to black
I believe in you even though I be outnumbered
Oh, though the earth may shake me
Oh, though my friends forsake me
Oh, even that couldn't make me go back.

Don't let me change my heart
Keep me set apart
From all the plans they do pursue
And I, I don't mind the pain
Don't mind the driving rain
I know I will sustain
'Cause I believe in you.
