I'm a Fool for You

by Thomas K. Hunt

I'm a fool but I'm cool
This is nothing new
It's just something that I do
I'm a fool for you

I know I'm crazy by the company that I keep
day after day and week after week
I can't bring myself to turn and walk away
So here I am living your life everyday

I can't be who I want to be
Everyday you smother me
There's no kindness from you anymore
I'm the fool who can't find the door

Living for obligations
My love reflecting in the childrens eyes
Whitnessing so many firsts
Some lost to imagination that can still make me cry

I'm a fool but I'm cool
This is nothing new
It's just something that I do
I'm a fool for you

I wake up every morning with nothing but you
My mind thinks of freedom but I can't shake loose
You give me all the reasons with your abuse
I'm a fool by what I choose

You bitch and you moan
You're only happy when you're mad
It's killing me
I want to forget what we had

I've spent my life counting the days
They've turn to years and here I stay
Spitting out my own self pity
and after all these years you're not so pretty

I'm a fool but I'm cool
This is nothing new
It's just something that I do
I'm a fool for you

I'm still living my life for you
I know I'm carzy but it's what I do
I'm all in but I get no return
By now you'd think I'd learned

I know I'm crazy because of the things I do
I'm living your life and now my life is through
Here I am feeling thrown away
sitting where I sit day after day

I'm the fool that still plays your games
Some day I wonder if you'll remember my name
After all you put me through I think I'm pretty cool
You don't have to remind me I know I'm a fool

I'm a fool but I'm cool
This is nothing new
It's just something that I do
I'm a fool for you

Great lyric. I can almost hear the melody in the background. It's a guitar strumming low chords. Your lyric describes the power of relationship for good and for evil. Sometimes just escaping the net is an accomplishment of great value. Thanks Thomas.
