The Monkees - I’m a believer
Tekst en muziek: Neil Diamond
(1967)







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 my dreams



Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind
I’m in love, I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried



I thought love was more or less a given thing
Seems the more I gave, the less I got
What’s the use in tryin’
All you get is pain
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, I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried



Love was out to get me
Now that’s the way it seemed
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, I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried



Yes, I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind
And I’m a believer, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
And I’m a believer, yeah
And I’m a believer, yeah
