Reason to Believe

Tim Hardin   album

 

 

Bruce Springsteen isn’t the only one to write a song with that title.

Tim Hardin wrote this one in about 1965:

Reason to Believe
                                             by  Tim Hardin

If I listen 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
But 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 think 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
But still I’d look to find a reason to believe
(Instrumental)
If I listen long enough to you
I’d find a way to believe it’s all true
Knowing that you lied, straight-faced
While I cried
Still I’d look to find a reason to believe.

Rod Stewart recorded it, but the recording I like best is by Ian & Sylvia:
Ian and Sylvia
To answer the original question,  I have many reasons to believe.
Here’s one:  a Daylily named “Reason to Believe”   !
the name of this daylily is reason to believe
I believe that God is present and active in my life and in the world.
To me, the evidence in favor of this belief outweighs all the evidence to the contrary.
