It took me a few years
To notice something wasn’t right
Only certain people ever got to see the light
Why won’t I fight?
Speak soft and slowly
Don’t let them see the things you want
Only certain people ever get to see your show
why won’t I fight?
Please don’t make a fool out of me
Please don’t make a fool out of me
It’s been a while, I’m out for the count
hands and knees, I’ll feel my way out
So please don’t make a fool out of me
A fool out of me
Glory don’t suit us
But we will find the highest hill
Scream out what they don’t realize
What if we stay
and no one was in our way
Please don’t make a fool out of me
Please don’t make a fool out of me
It’s been a while, I’m out for the count
hands and knees, I’ll feel my way out
So please don’t make a fool out of me
A fool out of me
 

About A Fool:

The song is sort of about the moment after you 'ship' an idea out to the world and you're just thinking about how horribly it could all turn out and praying things wont be the worst case scenario. It's about being vulnerable (or being scared about being vulnerable). It's a very gentle song compared to the rest of the EP, somewhere between melancholy and hopeful. It's my favorite song to play on my acoustic guitar from the EP.
