Fools Like Us

key of [C]

A certain summer morning
A window opened wide
When without a warning
A sparrow flew inside
Beating heart and wing
Against a pane of glass
Needlessly suffering
Surrendering at last

And if you’re feeling badly
Go on if you must
But know that love will gladly
Suffer fools like us

You and I had argued
Late into the night
For reasons only God knew
But come the morning light
Close the open window
Open wide these doors
Love is but a sparrow
That we set free once more

So if you’re feeling badly
Go on if you must
But know that love will gladly
Suffer fools like us

Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (Mighty Sound 2005)

I used to hitch-hike around Europe with only one cassette. On one side was ‘Doc and Merle Pickin’ the Blues,” and on the other was Pink Floyd. I called it ‘Doc Side of the Moon.’
