Fool Yourself

Look out child you're bound to change,
You can't ever stay the same
Cause if you keep on singin' the same old lines
You're going to look around babe and find your friends out of town

Watch out girl the words you're sayin' don't really fit the play
Somebody else you might talk to now
Knows what you sayin' what you mean
They don't help your style...

You might say you ain't got a hold on yourself
You might say you always try your best
You might say you only need a rest
You might say you can only fool yourself
I said fool yourself
I said fool yourself

Don't believe the words you read
They're written on the street
And every time you know you play their game
They'll knock you down and take your pride away

See how bad you need to cry
But no matter how you try
It's the same old story once again
You always had number one who called you friend
I called you friend

You might say you ain't got a hold on yourself
You might say you always try your best
You might say you only need a rest
You might say you can only fool yourself
I said fool yourself
I said fool yourself
I said fool yourself

- Little Feat, 1973

Methinks there is a story here ;-)

Care to share?

There is indeed a story, as there usually is; suffice to say that even in the best situations, the truth is always preferable to delaying the potential inevitables. And in many cases, the delaying is usually worse than the truth it is meant to keep at bay.

Having said that, these lyrics are just something I wanted to share :-)
