581 – Willie Nelson – Making Believe (1966)

Escrita por Jimmy Work. Foi inicialmente gravada por Kitty Wells, em 1955 e foi regravada por inúmeros artistas como Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Wanda Jackson, Connie Francis, Ray Charles, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Skeeter Davis e a nossa escolhida, a versão de Willie Nelson.

A canção é uma balada melancolica sobre não esquecer um antigo amor. O cantor sonha que eles são ainda amantes, mesmo sabendo que ela nunca será dele novamente.

A versão que escolhemos de Willie Nelson veio no seu quarto disco de estúdio, chamado Country Favorites – Willie Nelson Style.

A letra:

I'm making believe that you still love me
And it's leaving me alone and so blue
I'll always dream but I'll never own you
I'll keep loving you and making believe
I can't hold you close darling when you're not with me
You're somebody's love now and you'll never be mine
I'll always dream but I'll never own you
I'll keep loving you and making believe

I'm making believe that you still love me
And it's leaving me alone and so blue
I'll always dream but I'll never own you
I'll keep loving you and making believe
I can't hold you close darling when you're not with me
You're somebody's love now and you'll never be mine
I'll always dream but I'll never own you
I'll keep loving you and making believe
