She Believes in Me

artist: Kenny Rogers 1978

While she lays sleeping
I stay out late at night and play my songs
And sometimes all the night can be so long
And it's good when I finally make it home, all alone

While she lays dreaming
I try to get undressed without the light
And quietly she says "how was your night?"
And I come to her and say
"it was all right" and I hold her tight

And she believes in me
I'll never know just what she sees in me
I told her someday if she was my girl
I could change the world With my little songs
I was wrong
But she has faith in me and so I go on trying faithfully
And who knows maybe on some special night if my song is right
I will find a way, find a way

While she lays waiting I stumble to the kitchen for a bite
Then I see my old guitar in the night
Just waiting for me like a secret friend and there's no end

While she lays crying I fumble with a melody or two
And I'm torn between the things that I should do
And she says to wake her up when I am through
God her love is true


While she waits
While she waits for me
