"Affirmation" is a song by Savage Garden, released as the fourth single from their second studio album of the same name.
The lyrics are a series of statements each starting with "I believe", for instance: "I believe in Karma, what you give is what you get returned" and "I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned". Darren Hayes has a teaching degree in early education and may have been strongly influenced in structuring the song lyrics in such a manner by John Dewey's seminal text on education "My Pedagogic Creed" which also starts a new statement with "I believe" .
