A Special Images & Words ~ Believe

What a Fabulous idea Joel to take such a beautiful and inspiring song and choose to use photos submitted by the Images & Words Group for your intended video.

I have one photo here but I will go through my other photos and make an album especially for you to choose additional photos of mine from.

I truly look forward to the finished project becoming a favourite not only for the group but for friends and family alike.

Believe.

So after all those one night stands
You've ended up with heart in hand
A child alone
On your own
Retreating

Regretful for the things you're not
And all the things you haven't got
Without a home
A heart of stone lies bleeding

And for all the roads you followed
And for all you did not find
And for all the dreams you had to leave behind

I am the way
I am the light
I am the dark inside the night

I hear your hopes
I feel your dreams
And in the dark I hear your screams

Don't turn away
Just take my hand
And when you make your final stand

I'll be right there
I'll never leave
And all I ask of you
Believe

Your childhood eyes were so intense
While bartering your innocence
For bits of string
The grown-up wings you needed

But when you had to add them up
You found that they were not enough
To get you in
And pay for sins
Repeated

And for all the years you borrowed
And for all the tears you hide
And for all the fears you had to keep inside

I am the way
I am the light
I am the dark inside the night

I hear your hopes
I feel your dreams
And in the dark I hear your screams

Don't turn away
Just take my hand
And when you make your final stand

I'll be right there
I'll never leave
And all I ask of you
Believe

I never wanted to know
Never wanted to see
I wasted my time
'Til time wasted me

I never wanted to go
Always wanted to stay
'Cause the person I am
Are the parts that I play

So I plot and I plan
Hope and I scheme
To the lure of a night
Filled with unfinished dreams

And I'm holding on tight
To a world gone astray
As they charge me for years
I can't pay
Yeah

I am the way
I am the light
I am the dark inside the night

I hear your hopes
I feel your dreams
And in the dark I hear your screams

Don't turn away
Just take my hand
And when you make your final stand

I'll be right there
I'll never leave
And all I ask of you

Believe

  10. Lovely photo! I was thinking about using the same words from the song but they get repeated a lot so there's plenty of opportunity for many photos. Or I might use another verse? I dunno? But your photo is very beautiful and perfect with the words :-)
