Believe in me by Dan Fogelberg and more on hope

Sunday, September 29, 2013

Here is a beautiful song I would like to share with you today and it is called "Believe in Me" by Dan Fogelberg. I hope you take the time to listen to it and read the words.

If I could ever say it right
And reach your hostage heart
Despite the doubts you harbor
Then you might
Come to believe in me.

The life I lead is not the kind
That gives a woman peace of mind
I only hope someday youíll find
That you can believe in me.

Those other loves that
Came before
Mean nothing to me anymore
But you can never be quite sure
And will not believe in me.

Too many hearts have been broken
Failing to trust what they feel
But trust isnít something
Thatís spoken
And loveís never wrong
When itís real.

If I could only do one thing
Then I would try to write and sing
A song that ends your questioning
And makes you believe in me.

Too many hearts have been broken
Failing to trust what they feel
But trust isnít something
Thatís spoken
And loveís never wrong
When itís real.

If I could only do one thing
Then I would try to write and sing
A song that ends your questioning
And makes you believe in me
Oh, you can believe in me.


I cried very hard today, listening to the music, listening to the words. Tears are very healing, really. emoticon

Life is full of all kinds of trials, problems and tribulations. Life is also full of inspiration, courage, love, and hope. I read a lot of blogs every week, amazing stories of people who are going through so much but keep on going. Their spirits soar and help me along to fly too.



My friendships here have been incredible and I dare ANYONE, anywhere, to say that they are not real!!! They are REAL and POWERFUL, the kind that change people's lives forever, the kind that save lives too. That power is then taken by us to our world, to share and hopefully inspire others.



Music soothes my soul when I feel lost and I just wanted to share with you one of many songs that inspire me and lift me. Thanks for your friendship, caring words, Goodies, encouragement, tears and hope. Thanks for reading my blog and if there is a song(s) that inspire you too when you struggle, let me know! I will read your responses and check them out.

And in parting...



LOVE, CHELSEA

    nice blog Chelsea. I love Dan Fogelberg, wish I could have seen him in concert right before he passed. I saw him the one time, years ago it was so good. This beautiful song would bring tears to only the kindest of people just like you.

    I love you dear girlfriend...my fleshy friends poo poo at my wonderful sparkling friendships often.

I tell them that I've met several of my spark friends in person and they are absolutely the REAL deal...sometimes more so.. than some of the people I've known for over 25 years.

That's kind of sad now isn't it to connect on a higher level to people on line than people you see and have known forever...but it's true!

I have always thought that the internet communicates on a higher lever through the ethers of the sacred and that many times our relationships developed in that manner are even stronger.

Just because we talk to each other via a keyboard and a screen doesn't mean that a person on the other end isn't any more real than someone sitting across you at a table in person.

I have been so blessed to have so many REAL connections through Sparkpeople.

In the four years that I've been here just a very few have felt a little hinky~ and I can tell immediately...I just call them out and disconnect...we all have a sixth sense about things...in person, or not.

You my friend are the REAL deal and I love that I was lucky enough to meet you! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thank you Chelsea! I love Dan Fogelberg, and there are so many songwriters and singers that truly bring healing to the soul. I absolutely love music and have to listen to something everyday. I love the older music, because I feel the messages are much more profound and real, than a lot of music today. But there are still are good ones present day. One of the artists, Josh Groban, singing To Where You Are, about the loss of a loved one, really helped me after my father's death. His music really reaches me, especially when he first started out. Many hugs, my friend. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon And thank YOU so much for your support! emoticon

    Chelsea! Reading your post gave me goosebumps.
I find music healing, too, and have been known to shed some tears listening to a song.

That is one of my favorite pictures of Jesus. When I need comfort, I look at that picture.


Thank you for sharing and for your encouragement and friendship. emoticon

    This guy was one hell of a songwriter and Chelsea this is one of his best ones. He is not that well known over here in the UK which is a shame as his melodies are always simplistic and beautiful.

There is an Art Garfunkel-ish purity to his voice and Dan Fogelberg is a talent that many other singer songwriters could still learn an awful lot from even now several years after his death.

Thanks for sharing this one.

Cheers

    Such a beautiful song...Dan Fogelberg was one of the best songwriters...sad we lost him to cancer in 2007! He had a way of singing that tugs at your heart strings and brings out the emotions. Thanks for sharing it with us!
You are such a sweetie...so glad to have met you here at SP! I feel like you...life changing! Glad to be here and have met all my spf's! I put on a blog awhile back this song as a tribute to my friends- I love this song! And Richard Marx is another great songwriter singer:

    I am so sorry you are going through the things you are. I hope that things resolve themselves and you have a better outcome.
Relationships certainly are real! No question about that!
I hope this week brings you happiness and some peace with all that is going on. If you need me you can call me!

    Thank you so much, Chelsea for the beautiful song and the beautiful, heart-felt blog. You are an amazing woman! I hadn't heard a Fogelberg song since my college days. . . a very long time ago! Listening to his music today brought back such wonderful memories - things I hadn't thought about in decades. Those lyrics. . . "failing to trust what they feel, but trust isn't something, that's spoken, and love's never wrong, when it's real". . . well. . .they are just so emotion filled! A little hard not to cry. Thank you my very "real" and "beautiful" friend for sharing a piece of your heart and soul with all of us today. emoticon

    Beautiful song and lyrics.

I once had a "toxic" friend that tried to tell me that my online friendships weren't "real"; when I look back on some of the comments she made at the time, I realize now that she was probably just jealous. It's because of my friendships here that I have still stayed here at Spark, even after reaching my goal weight.
