it’s only make believe lyrics – glen campbell

it’s only make believe
conway twitty
written by conway twitty and jack nance

peaked at # 1 in 1958
later covered by glen campbell as a top 10 pop hit in 1970. also performed by lou
christie & lesley gore as a somewhat-obscure 1986 medley version with “since i don’t
have you”

people see us everywhere
they think you really care
but myself i can’t deceive
i know it’s only make believe.

my one and only prayer is that some day you’ll care,
my hopes, my dreams come true, my one and only you.
no one will ever know how much i love you so
my only prayer will be someday you’ll care for me
but it’s o-only make believe.

my hopes, my dreams come true, my life i’d give for you,
my heart, a wedding ring, my all, my everything.
my heart i can’t control, you rule my very soul,
my only prayer will be someday you’ll care for me
but it’s o-only make believe.

my one and only prayer, is that some day you’ll care,
my hopes, my dreams come true, my one and only you
no one will ever know how much i love you so
my prayer, my hope, and my schemes, you are my every dream
but it’s o-only make believe
