The Fool

She looked so beautiful there in the morning
a dreaming angel sleeping in my bed
I could not leave for work until I kissed her
and stroked the golden hair upon her head
we'd been through so much since we'd been together
I learned from her and she had learned from me
but there was one thing that she kept a secret
and that was that she planned to set me free

and it looks like there'll be no need to buy you roses
red is for the color of my heart, all torn apart
and if love is only true when it's easy
it looks like I played the fool right from the start

in every bar I've been since then you'll find them
pieces of my shattered, broken heart
I'm putting down a trail so I will remember
the reasons why she said we had to part
she told me that our love was always changing
she could not be my lover anymore
but she had said so many times how she loved me
and now I'm just trying to figure out what for

and it looks like there'll be no need to buy you roses
red is for the color of my heart all torn apart
and if love is only true when it's easy
it looks like I played the fool right from the start
it looks like I played the fool right from the start
