People see us everywhere
They all think you really care
But myself I can't deceive
Oh, I know it's only make believe

My one and only prayer
Is that some day you'll care
My hopes, my dreams come true
My one and only you

No one will ever know
How much I love you so
My only prayer will be some day
You'll care for me but it's only make believe

My hopes, my dreams come true
My life I give for you
My heart or wedding ring
My all my everything

My heart I can't control
You lure my very soul
My plans, my hopes, my schemes
You are my everything but it's only make believe

My one and only prayer
Is that some day you'll care
My hopes, my dreams come true
My one and only you

No one will ever know how much I love you so
My only prayer will be some day
You'll care for me but it's only make believe
