Lyrics

I Believe in My Song

Written By: Patricia (Cromwell)Clements

You may take away the green of the leaves. You may take away the fish from the seas. You may take away the sun in the sky, but I believe in my song. If the mountain should crumble to the ocean, if the pale moon has lost its glow, if the seasons never change with the times, if the winter never comes with the snow.

(Chorus) I believe in my song. I believe in my song. I believe in my song and I'll sing it forever and ever and ever and ever and ever.

(Verse 2) You may take away the light from the darkness, take away the wet from the rain. You may take away the breath of the wind, but I believe in my song. If the mountain should crumble to the ocean, if the seasons never change with the times, if the winter never comes with the snow.

(Chorus ) I believe in my song. I believe in my song. I believe in my song and I'll sing it forever and ever and ever and ever and ever. I believe in my song. I believe in my song.
