# Would You Believe Me

Written by:

Would you believe me if I told you,
For four long years you kept the wolf from my door;
For four long years you kept my feet upon the floor
And now you're crying.
Would you believe me if I told you,
That my mind had changed me,
That I rearranged me
And now you're crying.

And it's a long, long way,
It's such a long, long way.
So many turnings, so many turnings.

Would you believe me if I told you,
That I'm sorry for the logic in the lies,
That I've found by complete surprise,
The truth.
Would you believe me if I told you,
That I didn't want to lose you,
That's why I had to bruise you,

And it's a long, long way,
It's such a long, long way.
So many turnings, so many turnings.

Would you believe me if I told you,
When I said that I could marry you,
I surely didn't mean to carry you
To here.
Would you believe me if I told you,
That at twenty years young and all,
You simply have got no control
Of the time.

And it's a long, long way,
Such a long, long way.
So many turnings, so many turnings.

Would you believe me if I told you,
For four long years you kept the wolf from my door,
For four long years you kept my feet upon the floor
And now you're crying.
