"I Believe in Your Sweet Love" is a song recorded by Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler for her fourth studio album, Goodbye to the Island (1981). It was written by Ronnie Scott and Steve Wolfe, and produced by Scott, Wolfe and Hugh Murphy. The song was released as the album's lead single in November 1979. The lyrics depict Tyler offering someone a romantic relationship.

The song was a hit in Canada, where it reached number 27 on the RPM Adult Contemporary chart. Record Mirror nominated it as a single of the week upon its release.

Background[edit]

Tyler's success was in decline after she failed to match the success of her 1978 single "It's a Heartache" with subsequent releases. Diamond Cut (1979) only reached number 145 in the United States,[3] and its most successful singles "Too Good to Last" and "My Guns Are Loaded" only saw regional success in mainland Europe.[citation needed]

Tyler released two singles in late 1979: "Sitting on the Edge of the Ocean", which saw her win the World Popular Song Festival in Japan; and "I Believe in Your Sweet Love".

"I Believe in Your Sweet Love" was also released on Tyler's album Lost in France: The Early Years (2005).[4]
