It’s Only Make Believe—Conway Twitty

Tom Breihan over at Stereogum has been running a column about all the Number One songs on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart since its inception in 1958. (It’s great—you should check it out.) I decided to use each song as a writing prompt.

 

“My one and only prayer

is that some day you’ll care.”

 

But what if the absence of God

is also God?

 

Two roads converged on a word,

and I—I mustered only a sigh,

And wished I could still tell the difference.
