“I’m a Believer” Lyrics

I thought love was only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else but not for me
Love was out to get me
That’s the way it seemed
Disappointment haunted all of my dreams

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

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

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

[break]

Ah, love was out to get me (Do, da, da)
Now, that’s the way it seemed (Do, da, da)
Disappointment haunted all of my dreams

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

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

(I’m a believer) I’m a believer
(I’m a believer) Honey, if I tried
(I’m a believer) I’m a believer
