"Make Believe" as written by Ian Thornley and Dave / Genn....
We're rolling down the highway
I'm rolling down my window
Then I stick my hand out
And fly with it as it flows

If I started thinking
Instead of looking back
You wouldn't see me sinking
Before they covered up the cracks

This is what it feels like, coming down
We're all in the movie, can't turn it off or shut it down
This is what it feels like, if that's so
Then where is the director to tell us where the hell to go?

I've got this film in my head
It's scripted all that I've said
Let's make it of real before we're dead
Because we're

Close enough, we're diamonds in the rough
Today's the day we finally say
Can't turn this movie off

And if we're told, we might as well
Just blow this all to hell
It's not a film or a fantasy
We're not just make believe

This is what it feels like
This is what it feels like

So this is what it feels like
Running through my lines
I'm never the pretender
I find it's just a waste of time

This is what it feels like
When the hero dies
On to the next one
Funny how time flies

I've got this film in my head
It's scripted all that I've said
Let's make it real before we're dead
Because we're

Close enough, we're diamonds in the rough
Today's the day we finally say
Can't turn this movie off

And if we're told, we might as well
Just blow this all to hell
It's not a film or a fantasy
And we're not just make believe
It's not a film or a fantasy
We're not just make believe

As long as I play me
And as long as you play you
God, I love this scene
I gotta thank the cast and crew
Don't let the credits roll
Don't let the credits roll

Because we're close enough
We're diamonds in the rough
Today's the day we finally say
Can't turn this movie off

And if we're told, we might as well
Just blow this all to hell
It's not a film or a fantasy
And we're not just make believe

It's not a film or a fantasy
And we're not just make believe
It's not a film or a fantasy
We're not just make believe

    My OpinionThese lyrics have some significant mistakes.

    "We’re rolling down the highway
    I’m rolling down the window
    Slowly stick my hand out and fly with it as it flows
    If I started thinking, instead of looking back
    You wouldn’t see me sinking, before they covered up the cracks" Is more accurate. Probably not perfect but close enough.
