I Believe In All Those Days

Friends, Romans, Countrymen -

As you are about to see/hear, this is my first song ever. As I am quite new to this, and a girl, I would love all feedback that is constructive/gentle. I know I pause a lot, srry. I'll post the lyrics below because I think it's a little hard to hear/understand at times. Well, here goes nothing!

VERSIONS

Before when you would smile
I swear the sun was always shining
But now all you can find
Is one more reason to be crying

I know that word can give a fright
Sneak in your room and grab you tight
But I believe in all those days
Before you went and changed

Cuz when i'd see those eyes
That's how I knew things would be alright
Yeah when i'd see those eyes
I'd never seen a thing so bright

And I know it stands for something
When your face comes into view
Cuz now your heart is in a different place
And I see a different version of you



So now let's cut to October
Where we'll pray for a few warm days
And we can contemplate what happened
To those things we swore would never change

I guess we just had different thoughts
On who we were, or why we fought
I'd die for one more taste 
Of how things were before I left that place

Cuz when i'd see those eyes
I thought, hey maybe we'll be alright
Yeah If I could just see those eyes
I think i'd shed a tear at the sight

And I know it stands for something
When your face comes into view
Cuz now your heart is in a different place
And I see a different version of you


And maybe i'm over thinking it
We both know that's my pony trick
But I can't stop pondering those notes, that air
And why I can't bring myself to abandon this ship


I don't say this cuz I hate you
You know these words aren't out of spite
As a matter of fact I still believe in you
Even more than I did that very first night

And what I wish more than anything
More than I thought I ever could
Is to know if you meant it when you said those words
When you spoke that phrase "For Good"

Cuz remembering those times
I hope our things will turn out right
Yeah remembering those times
I think I could shrug off one more slight

I know it would stand for something
If your euphoric face came into view
Then i'd know your heart was in that good old place
I'd see my favorite version of you


And I know you'll stand for something
When you meet Him in that glowing hue
I just hope you'll accept the version He sees
Because He wants what's best for you

Yeah I hope you'll accept the version He sees 
Cuz He knows what's best for you

Yeah I hope you'll accept the version He sees
Cuz He just knows what's best for you
