I heard the news today some mother drowned her baby boys
and then went on TV and cried real tears but it was just a ploy.
People wonder what went wrong.
The answer's in this song.

You see, it's only make believe.
It's too impossible to believe.
And I'd feel oh so blue,
If it were really true.

I heard somebody say, the war in Bosnia just won't go away.
And all those refugees, and the constant shelling day after day.
The rape and murdering. It can't be happening.

You see, it's only make believe.
It's too impossible to believe.
And I'd feel oh so blue,
If it were really true.

And now when I go home I watch the news on CNN
And I remain unfazed when another ten year old gets shot again.
It doesn't bother me.
It's just a fantasy.

You see, it's only make believe.
It's too impossible to believe.
And we'd feel oh so blue,
If it were really true.

You see, it's only make believe
I'm sure it's only make believe
I hope it's only make believe.
