I was the fool who trusted,
I was the fool who dared,
When I got close, you betrayed me,
Long before I was born.

I once loved songs about fools,
Until I knew I was one,
You should have been a safe haven,
It should have been you all along.

If I couldn’t trust you then the question would be,
Who can I trust at all?
For mothers were made for children to trust,
Because God gave them that call.

Song of a Fool

I was the fool who trusted,
I was the fool who dared,
When I got close, you betrayed me,
Long before I was born.

I once loved songs about fools,
Until I knew I was one,
You should have been a safe haven,
It should have been you all along.

If I couldn’t trust you then the question would be,
Who can I trust at all?
For mothers were made for children to trust,
Because God gave them that call.
