I never feel a thing, is it real
When I'm away from you?
Out of your embrace, the world becomes
A temporary parking place
A bubble for a minute, you smile
And the bubble has a rainbow in it

Say it's only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me

Say it's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me

Without your love
It's a honky tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played
In a penny arcade

It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed, if you believed

Say, it's only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you only took the time to believe in me

Without your love
It's a honky tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played
In a penny arcade

It's a Barnum and Bailey
Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me

Without your love
It's a honky tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played
In a penny arcade

It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me

Wouldn't be make believe
Wouldn't be make believe
If you only took the time to believe in me
Only, if you only took the time to believe in me

But it wouldn't be make believe
Make believe, make believe, make believe
Make believe, make believe, make believe
'Cause you make believe, make believe
Make believe, make believe
