Fool Who Knows

Well a love won't last the night
If it's built on sand
But when it's built on rock
Ain't nothin' that it can't withstand
I guess you know by now how this story goes
A very true story, take it from a fool who knows.

I was high as a bird in the sky
In the month of May
With a true fine love all mine

Forever and one day
Now my eyes overflowin' with the memories such as those
They're tear-stained memories, take it from a fool who knows.

Now my tears are fallin' and I hel the pain
Here comes all that hurt again
But while my heart keeps beating
I'll keep repeating
The same mistakes that I made before
The ones that made me walk the floor
I got a sack full of those
Take it from a fool who knows.

Well my tongue's gettin' tired
I been gettin' wired
While my heart keeps beating
I keep on repeating
The same mistakes that I made before
The ones that made love walk out the door
I got a sack full of those
That I'll keep diggin' into
A lonesome road with a cold wind blowin'
The path I chose, take it from a fool who knows.
