You Better Believe

You Better Believe

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)
"

Just some lyrics I wrote

"

  

 

It was a simple run to the quick stop

For some cigarettes and beer

When a man appeared from out of the dark

Looking like he needed handout.

I tried to pretend I didn’t see him

Cause my mood was in a hard place

And somehow he must have seen

Inside my soul when he said.

 

You better believe

No one can do it for you

You better believe

So fate will never kill you

You better believe

Or no one will ever know you

You better believe

Then faith will never fail you

 

Kneeling before the woman I love

With a ring and nervous hand

Asking her to be my beautiful bride

As a tear ran down her face.

She looked me in the eye with pain

And said, “I don’t think I’d be a good wife.”

Not knowing what to do all I could say

Were the words that saved me.

 

You better believe

No one can do it for you

You better believe

So fate will never kill you

You better believe

Or no one will ever know you

You better believe

Then faith will never fail you

 

A few years later on the street

She was looking so happy baby in hand

Greeting me with a warm smile

Telling me I saved her life.

As I walked away I gave thanks

To that angel with a dirty face

For the two lives he graced

With those lines I’ll always remember

 

You better believe

No one can do it for you

You better believe

So fate will never kill you

You better believe

Or no one will ever know you

You better believe

Then faith will never fail you

Dale, this is absolutely FANTASTIC. I love it. It contains a powerful message. We have to believe not only in ourselves but in God, or we are nothing. believing in ourselves gives us strength and courage and self confidence.

Great rhythm flow and the chorus is powerful.
Love it, Love it, Love it.

check spelling on line 21 second word. look (looked)

It was a great pleasure & uplifting !
Wise, powerful message. We have to believe in ourselves, believe that we can pull through life in order to do it at all. The lyrics itself is so melodic it's almost hypnotic, I don't know what it can do when put to tune! This is wisdom I will carry with me forever!

Amazing! The words flow so beautiful and I can hear this being sung. I'm a sucker for story telling lyrics.

It is a rhythmic chant . A street chaplain couldn't have told it better. The truest of these is the one that stays with the people. Not on the throne with the robes.

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool
