        C#      F#             C#
Making believe  that you still love me
             G#           C#
It's leaving me alone and so blue
                        F#             C#
Still I'll always dream but I'll never own  you
          G#                   C#
Making believe, it's all I can do               G#
Can't hold you close when you're not with me

You're somebody's love, you'll never be mine

Loving you and making believe

SOLO  in C#     then Bb

Making believe that I never lost you

But my happy hours, I find are so few
                 Eb     Ab              Eb
My plans for the future will never come true
       Bb                       Eb
Making believe, what else can I do
            Eb  Ab            Eb
Making believe, I'll spend my lifetime
       Bb               Eb
Loving you and making believe

The "A" should be a G# of course and I assume this was just a mistake because the rest of the tab is perfect. Better yet is to transpose this down 1 semitone and change what is then a G# to a G, or down 6, changing the D# to a D. It's an obvious "yikes" when you sing "It's leaving me" that the note given is a half step too high. I didn't think people should be dissuaded from taking a look at the tab, since it's such a pretty song and such an easy fix... so I gave it 5 stars. Hope that's O.K.
