Cat Power - I Believe In You Lyrics

They ask me how I feel
And if my love is real
And how I seem to think that I know I'm gonna make it through.
They look at me and frown,
They drove me from this town,
They don't want me around
'Cause I believe.

They show me to the door,
They said don't come back no more
We don't like the way you think you do.
So I walked out on my own
One thousand miles from home
But I don't feel alone
'Cause I believe.

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

Please don't let me drift too far,
Keep me safe and same where you are
So I can always be renewed.
And what you've given me here today
Is worth everything I could pay
And no matter what everyone will say
'Cause I believe
I believe, I believe,
I believe, I believe in you.

I believe in you when we've had no time together.
I believe in you when white turns to black,
I believe in you even though we'll all be outnumbered.
Oh, the earth will be shakin'
And friends will be forsaken
Please, we can't go back.

Cat Power I Believe In You Comments
  1. William Lynd

    Wow - this song is no longer Bob Dylan's! This version is killer

  2. jackredelfs

    Yet another Cat Power song I never get tired of. Incredible! There's something addictive about her voice. She might not be a technically perfect singer, but she sings like every note is her last and she's pouring out every last ounce of heart, sweat and soul. What an artist.

  3. metal guru61

    On this mouthwatering cover song, Cat Power infuses Bob Dylan's vintage juice with a funky flavor of Keith Richards' greasy brew.

  4. xusemoi

    oh yeah...

  5. laramenke

  6. Victoria Ahumada

  7. Ariel Alb

  8. Gabriel Allen-Jones

    best cover of this song.

  9. Sal Sardini

    @13moira I know, it is Charlyn Marie Marshall. Cat Power is her stage name. It is common for artists to have stage names, no?

  10. Diphda Richards

    @magnostic Wouldn't exactly say she's Unappreciated. And Cat's not her name...


    Yeah, she still sells out theaters, so she's got a healthy fanbase. And thank goodness. If anyone deserves to succeed, it's this fine musician.

  11. Kai Niedermeyer

    Thank you Charlyn Marie! Thank you for time well spent... just bought your CD!

  12. Kai Niedermeyer

    Geee, powerful

  13. Sal Sardini

    I prefer this over bob's. :-)

    Cat, you are the most unappreciated talent in rock music :D
