Blessid Union Of Souls I Believe Lyrics

Last updated: 11/19/2013 11:11:19 PM

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 theres families on the street
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 says she's never been so happy, but Lisa lives in fear
That one day Daddy's gonna find out that she's in love
With a Nigger from the streets
Oh how he would lose it then, but she's still here with me
Cuz she believes that love will see it through
One day he'll understand
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 a way
Love will find the way
Love will find the way
Love will find the way

Facts | Reviewer: Gill | 11/4/12

According to the "I Believe Story" from Blessid Union of Souls's compilation album Almost Acoustic (Volume 1), the song was written by vocalist Eliot Sloan in the early morning when he imagined the main piano sample which would be used in the song and then played it.
I always tell people, and it's the truth, 'I Believe' was written in the middle of the night at about three in the morning. I always used to live in downtown Cincinnati, a really cool spiral staircase up to my bedroom, which kind of ended up as my studio. I kept a piano there that my mother got me when I was nine. In the middle of the night I was hearing the melody and I thought, 'this is pretty.' I just had to get up and play it.
Eliot Sloan stated in an interview with The Celebrity Cafe that he wrote the song about his relationship with "Lisa", a girl he once dated. Lisa's father allegedly threatened to cut off her college tuition if she continued to see Eliot. They said good-bye and went their separate ways. He said that he still very much missed her, and placed a message in the liner notes of Home: "Lisa, give me a call sometime just to say hello, my number is still the same."


Now let it go cultists.

Real Love | Reviewer: Jonathan | 10/19/11

@Ellen Cherry Charles...yes, actually. They are Christians, and the meaning of the song has been declared by Eliot Sloan himself as referring to God when it talks about love. Love is the answer, and God is Love. It's not that others can't understand love, only that love means something different for Christians from others. The biblical definition of love is totally selfless. It's not a feeling. It's an attitude which leads to action. It forgives, remembers no wrongs, endures, etc. It's defined in 1 corinthians. The greeks had different words for the types of love. Biblical, Christian love is what's known as agape love. What most people think of is eros, which can certainly be a part of agape, but agape is much more than that.

Still Crazy After all these Years | Reviewer: Tom | 6/20/11

Like any other great artwork, we still talk about this song as if it was just released.The Keyboards playing sounds Devine as from whence it came.Sloan has certainly been in a place where "GOD IS LOVE" has been taught,and this song seem to be reverbarations of that teaching.LOVE WILL FIND A WAY(GOD IS THE WAY!!!)

Craigo | Reviewer: Craigo | 5/30/11

I believe Sloan was hopeful, but knew blacks will not be accepted in this age. I believe it's because they insist on being wierd and whites are in denial. Sloan even says "No F**king Way" at the end of the song.

excellent | Reviewer: Elbert @phil... | 9/24/10

Guys, I really like the essence of the song. Hope to have another songs from your band. Though some words are not emphasized well co'z you are Italian but if we get the message, it is very good. Thank you very much

No boundaries! | Reviewer: glowballz | 4/24/10

The 1st time i heard the song is when i was in highschool. wow! what good lyrics and music and video. that's it til i've found myself got caught in the same situation (just like Sloan and Lisa inside the lyrics) one more time i heard it on my cellphone's radio station plays that song, it was really cries me a river "('T_T')"

To be fair... | Reviewer: Anna | 1/1/08

With all respect (and I mean that), when talking about writing the song "I Believe", Sloan (the lead singer/songwriter for the band) talks about "I give glory to God for dropping it in my lap, and saying here, sing this". So bible study guy's question has an answer.
And though it was probably asked tongue in cheek, yes, love is a perogative for Christians, that is, followers of Jesus. There are religious people out there who call themselves Christians but don't follow Jesus, or know him at all for that matter. Forget all that religous, shallow, judgemental stuff that's been shoved down all our throats forever--check the guy, Jesus, out sometime. He never hurt, judged, condemned or hated anyone. He was a person like you and me who got that it wasn't about religion but being in a relationship with God, and had a broken heart for the people no one else seemed to care about. And the only people he ever spoke against were hypocrites, and I bet you can think of a few very famous so-called Christians who are hypocrites. So you got something in common with him, right off the bat.

Hope that didn't stir anything nasty up, just wanting to set the record straight. Happy New Year

Is this group Christian? | Reviewer: Ellen Cherry Charles | 12/6/07

I am amazed at how David Williams showed no understanding at all of the deep meaning of the song. What does Christianity have to do with Love? Is Love a prerogative of Christians? The song is against discrimination, and there you are discriminating on a religious basis!!!!

Amazing! | Reviewer: David Williams | 9/5/07

This song is not only amazing, but the really amazing thing about it is, that just 24 hours after hearing it for the first time on the radio yesterday evening, it was a perfect topic of discussion at my bible study/house group meeting. I wonder if the band is Christian? Probably easy enough to find out, but I haven't looked yet. I wouldn't be surprised if they are though.

AMAZINGLY DEEP!!! | Reviewer: Niceguy | 10/22/05

This song is filled with soo much LOVE!!! People have to start to realize that this is not the world we want to live in and that we need to open our eyes and realize it!! Be the change you want to see!! Niceguy
