Song Lyrics - I Believed In You

Source

I went outside and there you were
Wanting to be my problem again
I thought we both knew better
We can’t even be good friends

You remember when I believed in you
And you miss that feeling
I don’t know what to tell you
It won't be my time that you'll be stealing

I believed in you
I believed in you
But that was long ago
And I can’t go back
I don’t believe in you no more

There was a moment
When I had to have you
You told me I was so alive
And back then it was true

I'll never believe in love
You proved that to me
And I won’t go back
It won’t work for you
And it won’t work for me

I believed in you
I believed in you
But that was long ago
And I can’t go back
I don’t believe in you no more

I'll never be so lonely
To bring back a problem
I’d rather be alone
Than go back
Back to where I've already been

I believed in you
I believed in you
But that was long ago
And I can’t go back
I don’t believe in you no more

@Binaya - I apologize for the delay in acknowledging your comment. I appreciate your praise.

@ubanichijioke - Thank you for your comment. I have a friend who was pushing away her ex... she liked the song.

@PenmePretty - Thank you. It is something that we all go through at least once I would think. Do we go back or move forward?

@Berga - I wish I had a melody. I'm very lazy to write the music. I know some piano and guitar but it seems so foreign compared to writing lyrics.

@Erin - Yeah... me too... long ago.. I chose to move forward...

I moved forward. We barely survive (not live) on nothing.I am alone now, but better alone than lonely with someone.

Worst loneliness in the world. :-)If we don't believe...dark path...

@PenMePretty - I agree with that... to be lonely but stuck is like living without hope. At least if you are alone there is a chance to meet someone new...
