Newsies Original Broadway Cast - Something To Believe In Lyrics




[Katherine:]
Till the moment I found you
I thought I knew what love was
Now I'm learning what is true
That love will do what it does
The world finds ways to sting you
And then one day decides to bring you

Something to believe in
For even a night
One night may be forever
But that's all right
That's all right
And if you're gone tomorrow
What was ours still will be
I have something to believe in
Now that I know you believed in me

[Jack:]
We was never meant to meet
And then we meet
Who knows why
One more stranger on the street
Just someone sweet passing by
An angel come to save me
Who didn't even know she gave me

Something to believe in
For even a day
One day may be forever
But that's okay
That's okay
And if I'm gone tomorrow
What was ours still will be
I have something to believe in
Now that I know you believed in me

[Both:]
Do you know what I believe in
Look into my eyes and see

[Jack:]
If things were different

[Katherine:]
If you weren't going to Santa Fe

[Jack:]
And if you weren't an heiress
And if your father wasn't after my head

[Katherine:]
You're not really scared of my father

[Jack:]
No, but I'm pretty scared of you

[Katherine:]
Don't be

[Jack:]
And if I'm gone tomorrow

[Katherine:]
What was ours still will be

[Both:]
I have something to believe in
Now that I know you believed in me

[Jack:]
I have something to believe in

[Both:]
Now that I know you believed in me

    KATHERINE
    Till the moment I found you,
    I thought I knew what
    love was
    now I'm learning what is true
    that love will do what it does
    the world finds ways to sting you
    and then one day
    decides to bring you
    something to believe in
    for even a night
    one night may be forever
    but that's all right, 
    that's all right
    and if your gone tomorrow
    what was ours
    still will be
    I have something to believe in
    now that I know you believed in me

    JACK (With his accent)
    We was never meant to meet
    and then we meet,
    who know's why
    one more stranger on the street
    just someone sweet passin by
    and angel comed to save me
    who didn't even know she'd gave me
    something to believe in
    for even
    a day
    one day me be forever
    but that's ok,
    that's ok
    and if I'm gone tomorrow
    what was ours
    still will be
    I have something to believe in
    now that I know you believed in me

    JACK AND KATHERINE
    Do you know what I believed in
    look into my eyes and see

    JACK (Monologue)
    If things were different.

    KATHERINE (Monologue)
    Wa- If you weren't going to Santa Fe.

    JACK
    Huh And if you weren't a heiress.
    And if your father wan't after my head.

    Your not really scared of my father.

  33. Psychotic Trash

    his v O I CE is so beautiful

  34. Isabel Ayala

    Time to memorize the lyrics so my Newsies obsessed crush will sing it with me

  35. MrGabeanator

    theatre talk brought me here

  36. Gunnar Shoemake

    Jeremy hits that A4 twice now geezbuz XD

    RockinRaabe

    It's so great! I will be auditioning for him in about a week so that's going to be fun. I'm a tenor borderline countertenor so I think I'm safe LOL. But the A4 definitely steals my heart. :)

    Gunnar Shoemake

    RockinRaabe good luck dude!! I’ve got the curse of the baritone myself... if I shred my vocal chords I can get up there but it’s really pitchy lol. Best of luck dude!

    I hope our school does newsies

    RockinRaabe

    Aww thanks man! Literally so many schools are doing it since the rights were just released lol. And if you can even get close as a baritone that's insanely impressive! :)

  37. Jacob Ren

    I want to sing this song with my (future hopefully) girlfriend someday <3
    I have something to believe in now that I know you believed in meeee

    Mia

    U got one yet?

  38. Emma ParkMiller

    My sister is such a Katherine, but she couldn’t audition for the show (our local theater company is doing it) cause last year was her last year and she’s now in college

  39. Hadley Lord

    Who else thought of only us? Dear Evan Hansen. Stay alive. Hamilton

    Manuel Orozco

    Hadley Lord I have yet to see Hamilton but Dear Evan Hansen is beautiful

    Hadley Lord

    Manuel Orozco both are truly amazing!

    Manuel Orozco

    It'll probably be a while before I see Hamilton because of how much money the producers want in return.

    Manuel Orozco

    By the way I do prefer Newsies over DEH

  40. Macy Campbell

    I’ve been blasting this song and watching art videos for 2 hours in the middle of the night....


    *Is anyone else pissed that Disney is taking all of their content off of Netflix?*

  41. opblack

    I feel like I'm one of the only dudes that listen to these songs

    Macy Campbell

    We all came here for a different reason.


    Some came for a Kara

    Some came for a Jeremy

    *We are disappointed with the people around us and listen to this as an attempt to have something to believe in with the people we know*

  42. Amanda Farmer

    THE LAST NOTE JEREMY SINGS IS THE SAME NOTE IN THE END OF SANTA FE THE REPRISE (IT'S LIKE KATHERINE GIVES HIM WHAT HE WANTED SANTA FE TO GIVE HIM; A SENSE OF BELONGING AND HAPPINESS)

    RockinRaabe

    You just got me so shook LOL :-)

  43. savingrace

    confirmed: im singing this with my husband/wife at my wedding

  44. my chemical disco

    This reminds me of my first kiss. We are sorta related, but not by blood, and we live five hours away from each other. This song makes me think of him all the time.

  45. Princess Art

    Jack: this song was actually for me and Davey but he ended up getting sick so we had to improvise-

  46. Bailey Pickens

    OTP 😍😍😍😍😍😶

  47. Becky Jo Cumming

    we was never ment to meet... and then we meet! I LOVE JACK

  48. Its Red Sky

    aingea v

    Queen Mimi this is the cutest shit omg

  51. Sophia Roth

    The only thing I can think when I hear this song is: NANANANA NANANA NANANANANA CATHY YOU DESERVE TO BE HAPPY. (Last Five Years reference)

  52. grace diane.

    2:41 his vocals got me sobbing

    Inés de Erausquin

    Mega Fetus that bit always gets me too! There's a remarkable quality to his high notes, a sweetness mixed with power that just grabs your heartstrings and goes YANK... lol. The end of Santa Fe kills me every time too.

    grace diane.

    Inés de Erausquin i know right! he has such a beautiful voice and stage presence

    Inés de Erausquin

    @grace diane. indeed. Of course, Alan Menken's fabulous writing and orchestration has a lot to do with it too ;) -- but Jeremy's performance is what makes it.

  53. Jaxon Storm

    That scoff at 2:26 is me when somebody tells me that they're Jack Kelly when clearly I'm Jack

    Sporty Demons

    I'm jack minus the talent and talking ability.

  54. Sarah Porter

    Oof my heart

  58. Mackenzie Brown

    I’m late to this play, but I have to say that this play has replaced the spot of Rent. This is an amazing play. I’ve seen it more than I can count and each time I watch it I cry. I feel everything they feel. ❤️❤️😢😢

  59. Redwolfpup

    me and my friend watching newsies
    Me: I want a Jack Kelly
    Him: I'm gonna go find me a Jack Kelly
    Me: when you find him, I'm stealing him
    Him: NO MY JACK KELLY

  60. MrGabeanator

    MrGabeanator

    @Manuel Orozco great now they both have to be redeemed

    Manuel Orozco

    MrGabeanator Amen

    Manuel Orozco

    MrGabeanator I hope so. But i read a snippet of Mandy Moore's recording script that Cassandra goes back to normal at the near end of next season and they part ways as friends again.

    MrGabeanator

    @Manuel Orozco they're parting aw man I was just getting used to cass btw how&where the hell did you find Mandy Moores recording script

  74. Scarlett Herondale

    I've never watched Newsies but this song is one of my favorite broadway songs ever. 😆

    Manuel Orozco

    If you have Netflix, watch the Newsies filmed performance. It's heartwarming and energetic in a rare Broadway package

  75. sydney g

    Where can I buy a Jack Kelly?

    Todd Walker

    if only walmart had one

    Phil Lavoie

    Your local Walmart. They’re on sale usually in March-April.

    kaisetic

    Where can I buy a Mike Faist? That's the real question

    walnutthe1

    Walgreens

    walnutthe1

    @kaisetic Omfg yes i want them both

  76. SparklyBroadway

    Hey, Kid from Nola (you know who you are)

    If you ever see this, text me. I like you a lot.

    aingea v

    SparklyBroadway this is the cutest shit i’ve ever seen

  77. Steph Piano

    Jeremy singing that note at 2:42 is EVERYTHING

    Sea Emperess

    Steph Piano I believe his name is jack not Jeremy

    Chris Rabassa

    In real life, his name is Jeremy Jordan. I highly recommend you look him up, he sings some amazing songs. My personal favorites are I've Told You Now and Run Away With Me.

  78. Ash

    I keep combining the ending of this with the ending of Santa Fe... oops

    Emily Ramirez

    Ash me too

  79. Molly Byers

    i can't listen to this song without thinking about the video of ben and lavon doing riffs to it

    Sami Popcornpup

    Molly Byers SAME. Lavon screaming as soon as Ben opens his mouth is highly relatable.

    Emily Ramirez

    Molly Byers yes same

  80. Zarito

    I have this in loop. Every. Day.

  81. Marjolaine De Simone

    So cheesy but so good

    You...you... how dare you disrespect Jack Kelly

    Braden Wolf

    I love that line

    Kenneth Milota

    @el keith Don't care

    Mairi Gabel

    I don't think that's fair! I think it's the best part of the song. If you can't say anything nice about one of the best songs in the musical, or even in the world, keep your opinions to yourself, than you very much.

    Michael Mell

    *WHAT A ME*

  95. Elle Fromm

    You got me Jack Kelly, and everyone saw it coming

    Yasmin Romero

    Elle Fromm "I never even saw it coming" is the correct line

    Jack The King

    I think they were making a joke because everyone saw it coming except Kath and Jack

  96. Chel_24

    this song makes me want to have a boyfriend. especially one that can sing, but I can't even sing so....

    Fandom Music Videos :3

    Okay, this is literally the best description of my life I've ever seen on the internet

    Connor Klein

    You mean “gay” guys right 😂

    Aubrey 19

    The guy I have a crush on can sing so...

    Ricky

    Same but uno reverse card the genders.
    Actually,I can sing a bit if I do it for like a week or 2. I can hit some damned high notes too.

  97. Sami Popcornpup

    I want a Jack Kelly. Can I have a Jack Kelly?

    misscanadarain

    Manuel katherine's looks or her personality?

    Todd Walker

    Don't we all

    Adriana Eason

    I have a jack Kelly, he’s honestly the sweetest guy I’ve ever met and I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve him

  98. Dani The Singer

    This is the best musical ever😍😍

    Manuel Orozco

    I just saw the Fathom Events presentation last weekend. I loved it one of my favorite musicals

    Angelina Dallas

    I watched that musical in Herricks Community Center and I loved it! For the musicals that I saw, Newsies is way better than Frozen.

  99. Dawn Tisdale

    SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN:

    Katherine:
    Till the moment I found you
    I thought I knew what love was
    Now I'm learning what is true
    That love will do what it does
    The world finds ways to sting you
    And then one day decides to bring you
    Something to believe in
    For even a night
    One night may be forever
    But that's all right
    That's all right
    And if you're gone tomorrow
    What was ours still will be
    I have something to believe in
    Now that I know you believed in me

    Jack:
    We was never meant to meet
    And then we meet
    Who knows why
    One more stranger on the street
    Just someone sweet passing by
    An angel come to save me
    Who didn't even know she gave me
    Something to believe in
    For even a day
    One day may be forever
    But that's okay
    That's okay
    And if I'm gone tomorrow
    What was ours still will be
    I have something to believe in
    Now that I know you believed in me

    Jack & Katherine:
    Do you know what I believe in
    Look into my eyes and see

    Jack:
    If things were different

    Katherine:
    If you weren't going to Santa Fe

    Jack:
    And if you weren't an heiress
    And if your father wasn't after my head

    Katherine:
    You're not really scared of my father

    Jack:
    No, but I'm pretty scared of you

    Katherine:
    Don't be

    Jack:
    And if I'm gone tomorrow

    Katherine:
    What was ours still will be

    Jack & Katherine:
    I have something to believe in
    now that I know you believed in me

    Jack:
    I have something to believe in

    Jack & Katherine:
    Now that I know you believed in me

    Ali Parry

    Jack:
    And if you weren't an heiress
    If your father wasn't after my head

    Katherine:
    You're not really scared of my father

    Jack:
    No
    But I am pretty scared of you

    Katherine:
    Don't be
