April Fool – a new lyric

Posted: April 16, 2020

APRIL FOOL

You had me

I had you

A long long time ago

Going deep

Into the things

We knew we did not know

We found our way

By candlelight

We found our way by chance

We found the place

Where loneliness

Crossed swords with circumstance

So please tell me 

Who proved to be

The exception to the rule

Tell me who was

The April fool

We were young

We were old

Depending on the day

Chalking up

So many debts

We could not repay

We found our way

By accident

We found our way by luck

We found the place

Where hope and faith

Were sitting thunderstruck

So please tell me

Who proved to be

The exception to the rule

Tell me who was

The April fool

All the days

All the nights

The endless give and take

Things we said

And things we did

Just for old time’s sake

We found our way

Despite it all

We found our way by touch

Ending up here

Where damaged hearts

Don’t qualify for much

So please tell me

Who proved to be

The exception to the rule

Tell me who was

The April fool
