You Must Believe in Spring

Beneath the deepest snows
The secret of a rose
Is merely that it knows
You must believe in spring

When lonely feelings chill
The meadows of your mind
Just think if winter comes
Can spring be far behind?

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

The frozen mountains 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 its way
Just as a 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

(Alan Bergman, Marilyn Bergman, Jacques Demy, Michel Legrand, 1967)
