about

I do believe this was simply a part of an extended song-per-week project that I never posted. I'd almost completely forgotten about it but stumbled across it looking to add to my set. I think I'm going to work on the rhythm of that second verse and rotate this one in.

lyrics

I’m only a name in a book
Some fairytale character lost in the woods
Makes you think about the things you wish
were more than imagination 

I’m a story that’s caught in your head
A shadow of doubt from beginning to end
Makes you wonder how you fell right off the edge
of a perfect ending

It was only make believe, only make believe
It’s what you get when you read between the lines
It was only make believe, only make believe
It’s what you get for reading my mind, reading my mind

I’m not an easy read
Fathoms deep in analogies, metaphors and personifications
But you’ll swoon and I’ll sigh and we can both romanticize
about the moon leading the tide into temptation 

It was only make believe, only make believe
It’s what you get when you read between the lines
It was only make believe, only make believe
It’s what you get for reading my mind, reading my mind

Words, words, sweeter than any heard
No one knows their worth or meaning
Words, words. I was singing them like a bird
But maybe you were only dreaming
Maybe, maybe

It was only make believe, only make believe
It’s what you get when you read between the lines
It was only make believe, only make believe
It’s what you get for reading my mind, reading my mind

Now the reason we're here
Every man, every woman
Is to help each other
Stand by each other
When love walks in the room
Everybody stand up
Oh it's good, good good
Say I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you - The Pretenders

At some point in my life, I heard this song and decided (before I knew I decided) that my life purpose was to send a "message of love". Be <3
