Make Believe

Sometimes we need arms to hold us more than we need the truth.

Lyrics

[verse]
in another world
I’d know better
hands that promise
lips that lie

in another time
I’d regret it
bad news
you and i

[pre-chorus]
you want me
but not enough
someone else
is on your mind

but I want you
just enough
to forget what
I left behind

[chorus]
make believe and I’ll believe you
say I’ll be alright
don’t need no once upon a time
just stay with me tonight

tell me I’m your everything
no place you’d rather be
don’t need no happy ending
just make believe that you need me

[verse]
I’ll let you be
the prince
for this damsel
in distress

rescue me
from reality
cause life’s
made me a mess

[pre-chorus]
kiss away
all my sorrow
make it better than before

be my reason
for tomorrow
cause I can’t cry anymore

[chorus]
make believe and I’ll believe you
say I’ll be alright
don’t need no once upon a time
just stay with me tonight

tell me I’m your everything
no place you’d rather be
don’t need no happy ending
just make believe that you need me

[bridge]
lock me up in your tower
kiss me so I awake
I’ll melt under your power
you’ll be my best mistake

[chorus]
make believe and I’ll believe you
say I’ll be alright
don’t need no once upon a time
just stay with me tonight

tell me I’m your everything
no place you’d rather be
don’t need no happy ending
just make believe that you need me
