"Make Believe" as written by and Benny/shilkret,jack ...
Pack up all your things; I'll help; you'll leave today
We said we'd do it, and today's the day
Don't care how we tried; it's gone a thousand times
We'll make it through this, there's no other way

If I'm the first and I'm the only, promise me I'll never be lonely
But only for as long as we believe

We placed all our faith in sex
And we broke it all, and now there's nothing left
Of my little world of make-believe

Messed up everything, all set to wash away
And, now, I'm through living as a criminal
No time for sentiment, just time to pay the rent
But maybe I'm not ready to grow up today

If I'm the first and I'm the only, promise me I'll never be lonely
But only for as long as we believe

We placed all our faith in sex
And we broke it all, and now there's nothing left
Of my little world of make-believe

I'm not ready to be thirty-two
And can't I just stay a while inside with you?
Far from the compromise and shifty eyes and dirt
I'm not ready to be thirty-two
But I can't stay forever young with you
Slam the door on my mixed-up ways
I can't live my life like I'm in sixth grade
In my little world of make-believe

Guess that's everything; I'll watch you drive away
Here's all your pictures, and here's most of mine
But I loved you more than this; I lived for your sweet kiss
You watched me grind away, and I watched you fade away

We placed all our faith in sex
And we broke it all, and now there's nothing left
Of my little world of make-believe
My little world of make-believe

Let me come back to my world of make-believe
(My little world of make-believe)
My little world of make-believe
(Never go back to my world of make-believe)
Let me come back to my world of make-believe
(My little world of make-believe)
My little world of make-believe
(Never go back)
