Kitty Wells – Making Believe Lyrics

Makin’ believe
That you still love me
It’s leaving me
Alone and so blue
But I’ll always dream
Still I’ll never own you
Makin’ 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
Makin’ believe, I’ll spend my li-ifetime
Lo-oving you, making believe

Making believe
That I never lost you
But my happy hours
I find are so few
My plans for the future
Will never come true-ue
Makin’ believe
What else can I 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 li-ifetime
Lo-oving you, making belie-ie-ieve
