Mr. and Mrs. Make-Believe

Mr. and Mrs. Make-Believe

Lori Lieberman, Jet D’eau Music, BMI

All our friends wish they could find
A love as true as yours and mine
They see us smiling all the time
Sometimes I think they must be blind

Cause after everybody leaves
There’s no one left but you and me
We fall by inches and degrees
Into our cold and loveless sea

Mr. and Mrs. Make-Believe
Living in a world of fantasy
How’d we ever get to be
Mr. and Mrs. Make-Believe

Everybody wants to hear
How love’s survived for all these years
And though we smile and act sincere
Inside, we hide a well of tears

Cause when the evening starts to fade
We can’t keep up this masquerade
With every touch, you pull away
We’re actors in a different play

Mr. and Mrs. Make-Believe
Living in a world of fantasy
T.V.’s late night tragedy
Mr. and Mrs. Make-Believe

We know
We should let each other go
And walk this broken path alone
And just give up on this show
And yes
It would be so hard I guess
To face the truth and just confess
We’ve been trapped in loneliness

All our friends wish they could find
A love as true as yours and mine
But they don’t see the tears we cry
And they hear the empty lies

Cause every evening it’s the same
Two puppets here to entertain
Up on the stage our claim to fame
Anything to hide our shame

Mr. and Mrs. Make-Believe
Living in a world of fantasy
How’d we ever get to be
Mr. and Mrs. Make-Believe
