Song Lyric Sunday – I Believe by Blessid Union of Souls

If you didn’t see my theme post yesterday and you’d like to play along, you can find the post here.

I have to admit that this week I picked the theme based on the song I had already chosen.  I’m hoping in weeks to come to actually pick the theme and then pick my song lyric submission; although, I can’t always guarantee it.  Sometimes I hear a song and I’m so inspired, I just have to post it.

I have to thank Jaxon, once again, for inspiring this one.  I used to listen to this band all the time, but they’ve fallen into that abyss of “bands I used to listen to”.  He played this song while we were driving in the car yesterday, and it gave me chills and made me cry, just like it always used to.

The message is something that is universal and we need to hear it today, just as much as we needed to hear it then.  I have so much respect for them that they had the courage to write the lyrics and perform the song.  I hope it touches you as much as it touches me.  “Cause I believe that love is the answer.  I believe that love will find the way.”

“Please love find the way.”

I believe by Blessid Union of Souls
Written by Eliot Sloan (lead singer)
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Walk blindly to the light and reach out for his hand
Don’t ask any questions and don’t try to understand
Open up your mind and then open up your heart
And you will see that you and me aren’t very far apart’Cause I believe that love is the answer
I believe that love will find the way

Violence is spread worldwide and there are families on the street
And we sell drugs to children now oh why can’t we just see
That all we do is eliminate our future with the things we do today
Money is our incentive now so that makes it okay

But I believe that love is the answer
I believe that love will find the way
I believe that love is the answer
I believe that love will find the way

I’ve been seeing Lisa now for a little over a year
She said she’s never been so happy but Lisa lives in fear
That one day daddy’s gonna find out she’s in love
With a nigger from the streets
Oh how he would lose it then but she’s still here with me
‘Cause she believes that love will see it through
And one day he’ll understand
And he’ll see me as a person not just a black man

‘Cause I believe that love is the answer
I believe that love will find the way
I believe I believe I believe I believe that love is the answer
I believe that love will find the way
Love will find the way
Love will find the way
Love will find the way
Please love find the way
Please love find the way
