Tony Bennett and Bill Evans’ “You Must Believe in Spring”

You Must Believe in Spring
Song performed by Tony Bennett and Bill Evans

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 it’s emptiness

Is just the time of year

 

The frozen mountain dreams

Of April’s melting streams

How crystal clear it seems

You must believe in Spring

 

You must believe in love

And trust it’s on it’s 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

 

You must believe in love

And trust it’s on it’s 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
