Norbert Leo Butz lyrics : "If I Didn't Believe In You"

*spoken*Okay, stop
Cathy, stop!

Listen to me!

"There are people

And they are publishing my book
And there's a party that they're throwing
And while you've made it very clear that you're not going

I will be going
And that's done

But what's it really about?
Is it really about a party, Cathy?
Can we please for a minute stop blaming

And say what you feel?
Is it just that you're disappointed
To be touring again for the summer?

Did you think this would all be much easier
Than it's turned out to be?
Well, then talk to me, Cathy

Talk to me

If I didn't believe in you

We'd never have gotten this far
If I didn't believe in you
And all of the ten thousand women you are

If I didn't think you could do
Anything you ever wanted to
If I wasn't certain that you'd come through somehow

THe fact of the matter is, Cathy
I wouldn't be standing here now

If I didn't believe in you
We wouldn't be having this fight
If I didn't believe in you

I'd walk out the door and say,
"Cathy, you're right"
But I never could let that go

Knowing the things about you I know
Things, when I met you four years ago, I knew
It never took much convincing

To make me believe in you

Don't we get to be happy, Cathy?

At some point down the line
Don't we get to relax?
Without some new tsuris

To push me yet further from you?
If I'm cheering on your side, Cathy
Why can't you support mine?

Why do I have to feel
I've committed some felony
Doing what I always swore I would do?

I don't want you to hurt
I don't want you to sink

But you know what I think?
I think you'll be fine!
Just hang on and you'll see-

But don't make me wait till you do
To be happy with you
Will you listen to me?

No one can give you courage
No one can thicken your skin
I will not fail so you can be comfortable, Cathy

I will not lose because you can't win

If I didn't believe in you

Then here's where the travelogue ends
If I didn't believe in you
I couldn't have stood before all of our friends

And said, "This is the life I choose-
This is the thing I can't bear to lose
Trip us or trap us, but we refuse to fall"

That's what I thought we agreed on, Cathy
If I hadn't believed in you
I wouldn't have loved you at all"

*spoken* Now why don't you put your dress on and we'll go, okay?

Can we just do that please?
