Lyrics

You told me he takes you places unknown
It hit me in the gut like you were throwing a stone
Well you’re older know and you have grown so wise
If you’ve learned one thing, it’s the art of compromise

It could have been a fool like me
Dragging your baggage around
Waiting all day for the sun to go down
It could have been a fool like me
Slipping through the shadows up town
It could have been a fool, could have been a fool like me

You told me I was important to you
I believed your words, but I don’t know what’s true
Yes I’m bolder now, but sometimes a man gets dense
In the presence of a woman with uncommon sense

(Chorus)

A fool like me and the lessons I’ve learned
Too close to the flame and you’re gonna get burned
Is it better than cold and alone?

I would have danced to every trigger you pulled
A jester for your pleasure in all the kingdoms you ruled
But there’s only so many fancy dances to dance
If I’ve learned one thing, it’s the art of avoiding romance

(Chorus).
