lyrics

Everywhere I’ve ever been
Some called it freedom
Some called it sin
The villains and the heroes both
Chase the illusion of control
Fool’s gold
Fool’s gold

Father tells you how it’s done
Fairy tales and old re-runs
It’s a hollow feeling icy cold
When expectation takes its toll
(Fool’s gold)
Fool’s gold
(Fool’s gold)
Fool’s gold
Uh huh

Do you remember what you told me
In your singsong lullaby?
Those golden tears that you sold me
How they sparkle
But they weren’t worth a dime

Never knew what I needed
Til I had what I wanted
Don’t know if it’s real
Til you bite down on it
No money, no lies and no regrets
I turn and toss my cigarette

Fool’s gold
Fool’s gold
Fool’s gold
Fool’s gold
Fool’s gold
Fool’s gold
