Fool's Gold

In the style of

Lee Greenwood

Lyrics

if i only knew then
what i know now
you wouldn't be
sayin' goodbye

but i let you down
i was never around
when you needed me
there by your side

i took a perfect love
and gave you
a perfect heartache
i took a band of gold
and made a
twenty-four-carat
mistake

and turned it into
fool's gold
and i was the fool
'cause i let you go
ooh fool's gold
yes i was a fool
'cause i didn't know

too many times
i just didn't try
and now all i hear is
you sayin' goodbye
starin' at an
empty hand
full of fool's gold

if i spent the time
just holdin' you tight
and sharin'
my feelings
with you

then you'd
understand what's
inside of this man
and you'd know
what i'm
goin' through

i know that
i was wrong
now that it's too late
i took a band of gold
and made a
twenty-four-carat
mistake

and turned it into
fool's gold
and i was the fool
'cause i let you go
fool's gold
yes i was the fool
'cause i didn't know

too many times
i just didn't try
and now all i hear is
you sayin' goodbye
starin' at
an empty hand
full of fool's gold
