Gotta Believe

You don’t “gotta” do anything, of course… and I’m not sure about “believing” either. I could easily write a song that says “Don’t Believe!” (Wait, I think I have…) A lot of trouble can come from believing what some authority tells you to believe.

But this song is about believing in goodness. If you choose to believe that life is basically good, and that love is everywhere, then that is most likely what you will experience. We are all given plenty of hard knocks, so it is understandable if we start expecting bad things to happen. But we are all blessed as well, in so many ways. I am slowly learning that when I focus on the blessings, I am much happier…

Gotta Believe

Gotta believe in the goodness                E7       G7
Gotta believe in love                               E7       G7
Gotta believe in the happiness               E7        G7
Streaming down from above                  E7        G7

Yeah you gotta believe          E7
D7     E7     D7     E7     D7    E7

Can you feel the goodness
Can you feel the delight
Can you feel the tenderness
Where the day meets the night

Yeah you gotta believe

Believe it if you feel it                           A7        G7
‘Cause what you feel is true                 B7        E7
If it hurts, well you can heal it              A7        G7
‘Cause you know it’s real for you         B7

Yeah you gotta believe

There’s anger on the airwaves
Lots of fear for sale
Everybody’s frantic
But love will prevail

Yeah you gotta believe

Love is the lesson
Life is the school
Hate is the exception
Love is the rule

Yeah you gotta believe

Believe it if you feel it
‘Cause what you feel is true
If it hurts, well you can heal it
‘Cause you know it’s real for you

Yeah you gotta believe
