REASON TO BELIEVE
(Tim Hardin)

If I listened long enough to you
I'd find a way to believe that it's all true
Knowing that you lied straight faced while I cried
Still I'd look to find a reason to believe.

Someone like you makes it hard to live without somebody else
Someone like you makes it easy to give never thinking of myself.

If I gave you time to change my mind
I'd find a way to leave the past behind
Knowing that you lied straight faced while I cried
Still I'd look to find a reason to believe.

[Instrumental Break]

If I listened long enough to you
I'd find a way to believe that it's all true
Knowing that you lied straight faced while I cried
Still I'd look to find a reason to believe.


Recordings:
Tim Hardin - The Tim Hardin Memorial Album
Peter Paul & Mary - Late Again
Ian & Sylvia - Lovin' Sound

I am sure there are other recordings also

Rod Stewart had a big hit, but it's a far better song done as Tim Hardin wrote it. It's a quiet song, although I'm not sure it's the best song to sing to a girl friend (take a closer look at those lyrics). I used to sing this song and I still have Tim Hardin's version(with chords). If you're still looking for it, give me a shout and I'll e-mail it to you.

...and to contrast that, Springsteen also wrote a song called "Reason to Believe." I've heard medleys of the two songs.

REASON TO BELIEVE
(Bruce Springsteen)

Seen a man standin' over a dead dog lyin' by the highway in a ditch
He's lookin' down kinda puzzled pokin' that dog with a stick
Got his car door flung open he's standin' out on Highway 31
Like if he stood there long enough that dog'd get up and run
Struck me kinda funny seem kinda funny sir to me
At the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe

Now Mary Lou loved Johnny with a love mean and true
She said "Baby I'll work for you every day and bring my money home to you"
One day he up and left her and ever since that
She waits down at the end of that dirt road for young Johnny to come back
Struck me kinda funny seemed kind of funny sir to me
How at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe

Take a baby to the river Kyle William they called him
Wash the baby in the water take away little Kyle's sin
In a whitewash shotgun shack an old man passes away
Take his body to the graveyard and over him they pray
Lord won't you tell us tell us what does it mean
Still at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe

Congregation gathers down by the riverside
Preacher stands with his Bible groom stands waitin' for his bride
Congregation gone and the sun sets behind a weepin' willow tree
Groom stands alone and watches the river rush on so effortlessly
Lord and he's wonderin' where can his baby be
Still at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe

I got started on this when I heard a recording this afternoon of the Springsteen song by Rani Arbo and Daisy Mayhem:
