“Make Believe” by The Arrows (Lyrics, Comments, and Band Info)

Lyrics

Who is this coming out the wilderness?
Leaning on the arm of her beloved
Oh and how she leans
How she clings

And who is He?
Always down on bended knee
“Trust Me! Oh you have to trust Me”
Oh how he pleads
Now she sings that, “I’ll wait for you
I’ll wait here like a lovesick fool
My whole life’s with you
So what else am I gonna do?
But as long as you get your gold from me
I’ll be waiting

But I tried
I really shouldn’t get so uptight
It’s just that I,
I sort of lose my confidence
It doesn’t make sense
Cause I
Oh, I know you better than this
So wide awake
I make believe
That what we dream
Will soon be seen
Will soon be seen

‘Cuz I’ll wait for you
I’ll wait here like a lovesick fool
My whole life’s with you
So what else am I gonna do?
But as long as you get your gold from me,
I’ll be waiting”

Commentary (YouTube)

“I think this seems like the love story between a man who goes off to war and leaves the woman he loves behind. It’s sweet and lovely.”
-jflamen1

“Could be but is not, its a lovesong between her and God.. very nice”
-jessi81107

“This song is driving me crazy. I love it, but can’t figure out the lyric, “But as long as you get your gold from me”. Any thoughts?”
-johnforkner

“‘As long as you get your gold from me…I’ll be waiting…’
I’m almost positive it’s in reference to Proverbs 17:3, Proverbs 27:21, & Isaiah 48:10 which all speak about being refined.
The best verse that I think answers this is 1 Peter 1:7 (read 1 Peter 1:1-7 in context): so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
-ogeez5itzgabz
