    "I Believe In You"

    Jesus: Now that you found yourself
    losing your mind
    Are you here again?
    Finding that what you once
    thought was real
    Is gone, and changing?

    Now that you made yourself
    love me
    Do you think
    I can change it in a day?

    Man: How can I place you above me?
    Am I lying to you when I say
    That I believe in you
    I believe in you.

    Coming to you at night
    I see my questions
    I feel my doubts
    Wishing that maybe
    in a year or two
    We could laugh
    and let it all out

    Jesus: Now that you made
    yourself love me
    Do you think
    I can change it in a day?

    Man: How can I place you above me?
    Am I lying to you when I say
    That I believe in you
    I believe in you.

    This a shockingly honest and mature song to be written by a 25 year old man. This is the antithesis of the "selfless" (and many times dishonest) love song. Neil tells his current partner that he comes first to himself, that there's no way he can "put you above me". Rarely is a love song written by a man THIS brutally honest. Human beings like to believe in the "dream" of a relationship as oppose to honest relations between two people. And this song isn't necessarily speaking about love in general, but about HIS love - Neil prized his music above all, and I get the impression Susan (Acevedo) wasn't necessarily happy playing runner up. With benefit of hindsight, we know Neil is ruthless in his quest for honest music, and he's hurt many, many people, leaving "destruction" in his wake, in his own words. On one hand it's great to see how well Neil knew himself that young, insofar as his self- interest. On the other, I think asking himself if he is lying to her when he says he believes in her is terrifying. He's not sure he can ever love, period.

    One of the most powerful and beautiful empathetic songs by the great Neil Young that came out in the 1970 era of the times that was on ''After The Goldrush'' album to deepen our faith and hope for a brother or a sister that are in the south as much or more as they are in the north, during an era when some of us were actually losing our minds to our belief systems that seemed doubtful at times to what is real on the overall that is changing. This always questions us back to the individual [the Protaganist] or to the close friend that even if he/she loses his/her mind in God[Jesus] with the struggle of doubt to be made to love, he still finds a way to believe and still put him or her above himself in this song ''I believe in you'' with the words ''Ah...Ah...Ah... .Ah...Ah...Ah... Ibelieve in you'' is the sound created when God's energies of unconditional love and unceasing light dance together.
