Fool's Gold

Written By: Luke Wesley

I saw you, Across the room, and it was obvious to me for you to be
A part of me, well we'll see, and as we proceed through the evening we see
The right hair, the nostril flair, and all the quirky goofy things you never hear
That black skirt, the way you flirt, and all the perfect sexy things I never hear

So times gone, gone again, passed away by little limes and cocktail straws
Two days, three weeks, four months of a honeymoon that never sees
The spilt salt, the black cats, a trip under a ladder that broke my back
But late at night, at lights out, I can hear your breathing and that's all I need

All prospectors try to reach
With their hands what their heart can't keep
But fool's gold has always shown
That you just can't trust somebody in love

It starts slow, one night, a comment under my breath that could pass as slight
The next week, jealousy, give me a break it's not like we're married
It caught speed, I'm not clean, and you could list a million things about me
You talk, ya see, like all are keen, my list is done my pencil's down and waiting

All prospectors try to reach
With their hands what their heart can't keep
But fool's gold has always shown
That you just can't trust somebody in love

It's too late, we only chafe, in this prison we worked so hard to make
The new fights, the old wounds, so everything is lifted to a new key
That dirty skirt, the way you flirt, and all the things you ever said that really hurt
My long hair, my nostril flair, and all the awful things that ran you off from here

It's fool's gold
It's fool's gold, yeah

It's fool's gold, I propose, that keeps me from coming back for more (x4)
