she believes in me lyrics – roger whittaker

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 waits… while she waits for me!
