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)

Writing and singing does give me some kind of release from the demons of my past, it is a therapy of sorts, but to be honest, my marriage played a more important role in the acceptance of myself than performance has ever done.
