This song is also actually called "Make Believe" and originally appeared on The Early November demo album, "The 5 Song EP"....
Is it enough,
To believe that you are real?
Sometimes it gets tough,
Believing in myself.

Well is it just me?
It could be that I'm always wrong...
I hear it in my head,
Twisting and lies,
Till we're sure I'm wrong.
But I forget,
How you broke my heart,
Or how you find yourself,
Untimely falling for someone else, dear.
And every time,
Something like this happens,
You always make it seem,
Like I did something wrong to you...

Well guess what?
I can't do this anymore.
So next time,
You're thinking about telling me,
What I do wrong,
Think about,
All I let myself,

Why can't you,
Have me,
And be happy,
At the same time?

    General Commentthere are a couple of wrong lies i think:
    -twisting and lies 'till were sure I'm wrong
    -Or how you find yourself so without me falling for someone else dear
    -like I did something wrong to you

    This song is one of the most straight forward songs that ace has ever done. He goes past all the teenage drama bullshit and gets to the real feelings rather than the cliche ones, that what makes him such an amazing writer.

    "Why can't you have me and be happy at the same time" One of the best lines I have ever heard.
