Music (10/05) Words (9/04, 10/05)

A feeling
a song, a kiss
the simple touch of a hand
a crazy notion
non-existant

Believe
oh, believe
ah, believe
believe

This can't be happening
not now, not like this
that stare
drowning, no escape
no desire to

Believe
oh, believe
I believe
believe

This doesn't make sense
back to that feeling
faster, stronger
can't control it
no desire to

Believe
oh, believe
she believes
believe

She loved me
in an instant
and as long as I ask her
she'll love me forever

Oh, I Believe
I believe
she believes
do you believe?

Background:
Music: Specifically written in 6/4 time because I wanted a song in 6. Cool progressions, sorta linear, kinda short. Worked on it for awhile with no words in mind.
Lyrics: 99.9% written by my baby in poem form a year prior to it becoming song; some very, very slight alterations by myself to complete in song form. Added to the tune after it was mostly done musically.
