Wisdom of the Great Songbook: Alan and Marilyn Bergman’s “You Must Believe In Spring”

 

When lonely feelings chill
the meadows of your mind,
Just think if winter comes,
can Spring be far behind?

Beneath the deepest snows,
the secret of a rose
is merely that it knows
You must believe in Spring!

Just as a tree is sure
its leaves will reappear;
It knows its emptiness
is just a time of year.

The frozen mountain dreams
of April’s melting streams,
how crystal clear it seems,
You must believe in Spring!

When angry voices drown
the music of the spheres
and children face a world
that’s far beyond their years.

Above the darkest sky
the far horizons lie
with all the reasons why
You must believe in Spring!

You must believe in love
and trust it’s on its way,
Just as the sleeping rose
awaits the kiss of May.

So in a world of snow,
of things that come and go,
where what you think you know,
you can’t be certain of.
You must believe in Spring and Love.

  (With music by Michel Legrand.)
