About I Believe in You (You Believe in Me)

"I Believe in You (You Believe in Me)" is a song written and produced by Don Davis and recorded by Johnnie Taylor. Davis had originally begun writing the song in 1965. When he found himself two songs short while working to complete Taylor's Taylored in Silk LP, Davis chose "I Believe in You (You Believe in Me) as one of the songs that would fill out the album. The basic track was cut at Muscle Shoals Sound in Alabama with members of its famed rhythm section: bassist David Hood, drummer Roger Hawkins, guitarist Jimmy Johnson, keyboardist Barry Beckett, and Davis later overdubbed strings at United Sound Recording Studio, the recording studio in Detroit that Davis had bought in 1971. Released as a single in the summer of 1973, "I Believe in You (You Believe in Me)" became one of the biggest hits of Taylor's career, holding the #1 spot on Billboard's Hot Soul Singles Chart for two weeks and reaching the number eleven position on the Billboard Pop Singles chart. The single was also certified gold by the RIAA for sales of one million copies.

I feel sorry, I feel sorry
I feel sorry, I feel sorry

I feel for sorry
For any man out there
When he can't look around
And say this is my woman
My woman alone

I feel sorry, yeah
For any woman out there
Who can't say I got somebody
That I can call my very own

I feel sorry, I feel sorry
I feel sorry, I feel sorry

One thing I can say about
The people of the world today
They see you with a good thing
They want to take it away

But I believe in you
You believe in me too, yeah
Even your best friend will come
Around making sly remarks
Trying to put you down
I believe in you
You believe in me too

Listen, honey
People talking
Trying to pull us apart
Sticking pins and needles
In both of our hearts
I love you no matter
Don't care about
The stormy weather

I heard your mother say
Loving me didn't make no sense
But when she put me down
You stood up in my defense

I believe in you
Anytime you against
Your own mother
It makes me know
You believe in me, yeah
Here's another thing

We had our hard times
And almost didn't make it
We always worked it
Never tried to fake it

But I believe in you
You believe in me too
Here's anything about it

People talking
Trying to pull us apart
Always ticking pins and
Needles in both of our hearts
Our love together
Don't care about
The stormy weather

I believe in you
You believe in me too, yeah

I believe
That's why every time
We get a chance
I tell you, honey
How much I love you
Love you, love you
Love you, love you

And most of all
How much I trust you
The reason why I trust you, baby
Is because of one thing
I can lean on you, yeah, baby
And you can lean on me too
One more time I'm gonna say

I believe in you
Honey, please
Let me believe in you
I know a lot of folk out there
Wish they had somebody
They could believe in

I believe, I believe in you
You believe in me too
Anytime you against
Your own mother
It makes me know

You believe in me
I believe in you
And you've shown me enough
To know you believe in me too
