BarlowGirl I Believe In Love Lyrics

Last updated: 06/23/2009 11:00:00 AM

How long will my prayers seem unanswered?
Is there still faith in me to reach the end?
I'm feeling doubt I'm losing faith
But giving up would cost me everything
So I'll stand in the pain and silence
And I'll speak to the dark night

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining
I believe in love even when I don't feel it
And I believe in God even when He is silent
And I, I believe

Though I can't see my story's ending
That doesn't mean the dark night has no end
It's only here that I find faith
And learn to trust the One who writes my days
So I'll stand in the pain and silence
And I'll speak to the dark night

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining
I believe in love even when I don't feel it
And I believe in God even when He is silent
And I, I believe
No dark can consume Light
No death greater than this life
We are not forgotten
Hope is found when we say
Even when He is silent

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining
I believe in love even when I don't feel it
And I believe in God even when He is silent
And I, I believe

I believe History | Reviewer: mm | 6/23/09

In response to historical note by Z, on words inscribed by a Jewish person on a basement wall during WWII, I have also seen reference to the lines inscribed on a German concentration camp prison wall, viewed by members of US unit of 45th Infantry Division when they liberated the camp a few days before the end of WWII. Several years later, one of the soldiers saw the words inscribed on a plaque in a shop.
"I believe in the sun, even when it is not shining: I believe in love, even when I do not feel it. I believe in God, even when He is silent." Either report, or perhaps both are true, offer hope.



The History | Reviewer: Z | 2/12/08

These lines have deep meaning:
"I believe in the sun even when it's not shining
I believe in love even when I don't feel it
And I believe in God even when He is silent
And I, I believe."

These were the words inscribed on a wall by a Jew trapped in his/her own basement during the Holocaust. We actually sing a song called "Inscription of Hope" in my school choir. It has almost exactly the same lyrics as those lines. I just thought it would be cool for people to know. Thanks for listenin'!
