Fool’s Gold

Have I ever told you the reason that I can’t be near you
Have I ever stood up and called you the way that I see you
But who can compete with that innocent part you keep playing
The look in your eyes, such wounded surprise. You’re amazing
But why don’t you save it
For when you’re on stage

Look at that fool’s gold glisten
Keep them in rapt attention
The latest sensation, a real imitation
You never lose your luster
Shine like the light you’re under
you look like the real thing
just say it with feeling and they’ll never know

There’s no denying the talent you have to convince me
You’re carefully crafted excuses roll off the tongue easy
A “must-see” performance, thrilling beginning to end
that I don’t have the time or the patience to sit through again
So, why don’t you save it
For when you’re on stage

Look at that fool’s gold glisten
Keep them in rapt attention
The latest sensation, a real imitation
You never lose your luster
Shine like the light you’re under
you look like the real thing
just say it with feeling and they’ll never know

They’ll never know
you’re nothing but fool’s gold
Nothing but fool’s gold
Nothing but fools

Look at that fool’s gold glisten
Keep them in rapt attention
The latest sensation, a real imitation
You never lose your luster
Shine like the light you’re under
you look like the real thing
just say it with feeling and they’ll never know

Now the reason we're here
Every man, every woman
Is to help each other
Stand by each other
When love walks in the room
Everybody stand up
Oh it's good, good good
Say I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you - The Pretenders

At some point in my life, I heard this song and decided (before I knew I decided) that my life purpose was to send a "message of love". Be <3
