Believe In Me

( Album: "Electricity", Canada - 1987 )

How many silent dreams reach into heaven and fall away
In your eyes I see a promise that won't fade
I've been searching so long for someone true, a love that's real
In your heart I've found a vision I can feel
Is this moment here to stay, it takes my breath away

Believe in me

You open up my mind, now you know what I'm about
This kind of love's not blind, it breaks through walls of doubt
And the light that's in your eyes shines for me
This time it's all I need

ChorusBelieve in me, reach out with your heart
No power in the world will keep us apart
Believe in me and love will remain
Believe in your heart, love stays the same

In every lonely face there's a space, an open door
You speak to me in ways I've never felt before
When I'm a thousand miles away you'll still here me say

ChorusBelieve in me, reach out with your heart
No power in the world will keep us apart
O no, no. . .

Reach out with your heart
No power in the world will keep us apart

Believe in me and love will remain
Believe in your heart, love stays the same

Believe in me, reach out with your heart
No power in the world will keep us apart
Believe in me. . .

Paul Janz (born in 1951 in Three Hills, Alberta, Canada and raised in Basel, Switzerland) is a Canadian singer/songwriter and Christian rock musician best known for the hits Every Little Tear, Close My Eyes, Stand, I Won't Cry and many others.

He began his music career in the 70s with his brothers in a band called Deliverance, who are best remembered for the hit "Leaving LA" released in 1979. In 1984, he launched his solo career, which culminated in four projects with a string of chart-topping hits from each album. The success of his projects led to the nomination of the much-coveted Canadian Juno Awards (the equivalent of the Grammy Awards). Despite achieving great success in Canada, the recording label's restructuring of its roster of artists, such as Janz, led to the ending of A & R promotion in the American market.

Janz's last and final recording project, Trust, which was recorded under the Attic Records label, continued on in the same ground-breaking tradition with Janz's trademark lyrical compositions and driving melodic rhythms. Since that time, Janz hasn't released any new material. Presently at King's College, London, he formerly taught philosophy at Trinity Western University in Langley, British Columbia and has recently written a book entitled God, the Mind's Desire: Reference, Reason and Christian Thinking published by Cambridge University Press.

In 2004, Paul's first album High Strung was re-released on CD for the first time by Escape Music in the UK.
