Emmylou Harris Lyrics - Making Believe lyrics

 

Making believe 

That you still love me 

It's leaving me alone and so blue 

Still I'll always dream

But I'll never own you 

Making believe 

It's all I can do 

Can't hold you close 

When you're not with me 

You're somebody's love

You'll never be mine 

Making believe I'll spend my lifetime 

Loving you and making believe

Making believe 

I never lost you 

But my happy hours 

Are far and so few 

My plans for the future 

Will never come true 

Making believe 

What else can I do

Making believe 

I'll spend my lifetime 

Loving you and making believe
