Lyrics

Fool Me Once

Hello my dear, how have you been

I know it’s been a while

You say you’re well, but I can tell

That there’s something in your smile


That wasn’t there so long ago

When sunlight filled your eyes

Now darkness is all that remains

Behind a bright disguise


I hope that you’re happy with this mess that you’ve made

And the body count along the way

You’re so good at pretending you may even fool yourself

But I won’t be fooled again


I don’t see why you feel the need

To remind me everyday

That in the end I had a choice

And I chose to walk away


Well it took years and too many tears

To find the strength to say

That a life of truth in solitude

Beat your mind fucks any day


I hope that you’re happy with this mess that you’ve made

And the body count along the way

You’re so good at pretending you may even fool yourself

But I won’t be fooled again


The best laid plans of mice and men often go askew

Which is how I ended up that day with no clue what to do

Neither poet nor pro do I claim to be, still I hate to sound cliche

But despite the scrapes and scars sustained I’m still alive today


If I knew then what I know now

Would I let it go so long

Or would I have cut ties and left the lies

And started moving on


When I looked around upon the ground

At the shards of glass on the floor

That’s when I should have known that I’d never find

Any comfort in those arms anymore


I hope that you’re happy with this mess that you’ve made

And the body count along the way

You’re so good at pretending you may even fool yourself

But I won’t be fooled

No I won’t be fooled

No I’ll never be fooled again
