The Fool

For far too long I’ve made a mess

Of everything I’ve had

Turned love into loneliness

Joy to despair, good to bad

 

I thought I finally had the chance

To be happy, content

But you left, no backward glance

So my world went silent

 

I’m tired of always playing the fool

Fed up with being the clown

So now I’m taking back control

I’m turning things around

 

For two long weeks I bore the pain

Until it turned me numb

Somehow I need to feel again

Someday my time will come

 

I will not sit here and wallow

In self-pity and cry

I won’t drown myself in sorrow

Life moves on, so will I

 

I’m tired of always playing the fool

Fed up with being the clown

So now I’m taking back control

I’m turning things around

 

I know when I do wrong

I know when I have fucked things up

And now I know that all along

You and me, weren’t meant to be

 

I acted like a fool

To think we could ever work

I acted like a fucking tool

You did too, you know it’s true

 

I’m tired of always playing the fool

Fed up with being the clown

So now I’m taking back control

I’m turning things around
