Fool's World

from by Skye Zentz



I don’t know just how you did it
When you had me pardon you
But if you make me pardon you again
Then I’m a fool
Far from me, your love was phantom powered
Humming softly in my ear
And, if I’ll hear your song again
Then I’m a fool

And it’s a Fools World, darling,
And I’ve been fooled good
But you’re not thru, fool,
You just keep me from doing like I should
I should lose you, darling,
So you could feel the way I do,
But it’s a fools world, darling
And I can’t fool you

I tried a dozen times, I guess, for nothing
Tried to tear you from my thoughts
But you come creepin back
Whenever I forget
I leave you be, You seek me out much later
Throwin roses at my feet
I back away
But your thorns still reach me


Turn away from you
and I’ve got trouble’s of my own
But life excluding you
Makes leaving you
feel more like leaving home


Yeah, it's a fools world, darlin,
but no one's fooled you yet!
