“I’m A Believer” Lyrics

I thought love was only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else but not for me
Now love was out to get me (Di di-di, di-di)
That’s the way it seemed (Di di-di, di-di)
Disappointment haunted all my dreams

Then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I’m in love (Ooh, whoa)
I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried

I thought love was more or less a givin’ thing
Seems the more I gave, the less I got
Ah, what’s the use in tryin’? (Di di-di, di-di)
All you get is pain (Di di-di, di-di)
When I needed sunshine, I got rain

Then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I’m in love (Ooh, whoa)
I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried, ah

Davy: One time!
Micky: One time!

[break]

Love was out to get me (Di di-di, di-di)
That’s the way it seemed (Di di-di, di-di)
Disappointment haunted all my dreams

Then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I’m in love (Ooh, whoa)
I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried

Yes, I saw her face (I’m a believer)
Now I’m a believer (I’m a believer)
Not a trace (I’m a believer)
Of doubt in my mind (I’m a believer)
Well, I’m a believer, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I’m a believer (I’m a believer)
Well, I’m a believer, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I’m a believer (I’m a believer)
Then I saw her face-ah
I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried, tried, tried, tried, tried
Thank you, Detroit!
