LYRICS BELOW. Some years back, I got the idea for this song from seeing a poster saying 'I want to believe' in Mulder's office (from the X-files). I thought it was a great concept of someone who was sitting on the fence, and wanted to believe, but maybe had to be convinced. Anyway I had the title for several years before I wrote the song. This is what I came up with.

All alone in the world that I live in
Life was shallow when you left me
Thought that something seemed to be missing
Things weren't perfect, including me

I want to believe that love is forever
I want to believe in everyone
I want to believe that there is a reason
I want to believe that you are the one

I struggle with things that I see all around me
All the people with their hopes and dreams
Some will make it and some will go under
I'm trying to work out what it all means
(repeat chorus)
Hope you don't mind but I need to know
Want to understand where I might go
All I know, is what I see
I want to go much further and believe
I'm one of millions living here on the planet
Looking for some reason or rhyme
Wanting someone to come into my life
I am hoping that it might be time
(repeat chorus twice)
