MUSIC FROM "The Elder" (1981)

I - Gene Simmons, Bob Ezrin

I was so frightened
I almost ran away
I didn't know that I could do
Anything I needed to

And then a bolt of lightning
Hit me on my head
Then I began to see
I just needed to believe in me

[Chorus]
Now I, I believe in me
And I, I believe in something more
Than you can understand
Yes, I believe in me
O-ooh and I believe in me
Ooh yes I believe in something more
Than you can understand
Yes, I believe in me

Listen!
They said I didn't stand a chance
I wouldn't win no way
But I've got news for you
There's nothing I can't do

Ain't no pretending
Ain't no make believe
But I've got to be the one
I gotta do what must be done

[Chorus]
And I (I) believe in me
Whoa-o and I (I) believe in something more
Than you can understand
Yes, I believe in me

Well you know that I (I) believe in me
Ooh yes and I (I) believe in something more
Than you can understand
Yes, I believe in me
I believe in me
Yes, I believe in me
Yeah!

[Break]

I don't need no money
I don't need no fame... No!
I just need to believe in me
And I know most definitely

Don't need to get wasted
It only holds me down
I just need a will of my own
And the balls to stand alone

[Chorus]
Cause I (I) believe in me
Whoa-o and I (I) believe in something more
Than you (something more) can understand (something more)
Yes, I believe in me
Whoa-a, and I believe in me (you feel it too, don't you?)

Well you know that I (I) believe in me
Ooh yes and I (I) believe in something more (C'mon)
Than you can understand
Yes, I believe in me (do you really?)
I believe in me (do ya, do ya)
Yes, I believe in me (I wanna rock and roll all nite)
Yes, I believe in me!

Spoken Outro:
Elder: Morpheus, you have been summoned here to offer your judgement of the boy. Do you still deem him worthy of the fellowship?

Morpheus: I certainly do my Lord. As a matter of fact, I, I think you're going to like this one. He's got the light in his eyes. And, the look of a champion. A real champion.
