Fool For Love
Words and Music: Fred Alley and Karen Mal
 
I tasted salt on my lover's lips
Always came back thirsty
Looking back I don't know why
I ever let him hurt me
I looked into the setting sun
Never saw tomorrow
I let a thief into my heart
Left me only sorrow

I was a fool, a fool for love
I let him take what he wanted
And it still was not enough
I was a fool for love

I threw my bucket down the well
It never hit the bottom
I chased visions in a whiskey jar
But I never caught them
I hopped a train for glory bound
It never left the station
Never let a lover's heart
Be your final destination

But I was a fool, a fool for love
I believed he'd come back for me
If I waited long enough
I was a fool for love

I could have been a circus clown
But I missed my calling
I took a leap of faith one time
Here I am still falling

Just a fool, a fool for love
I know I've been grieving for
Something that never was
And I'm still a fool for love
