What A Fool Believes (Remastered Album Version) Lyrics

By The Doobie Brothers
Take from The Ultimate Collection (Non-iTunes Version) (with Album Only Tracks) Album


he came from somewhere back in her long ago
the sentimental fool don't see
tryin' hard to recreate
what had yet to be created once in her life
she musters a smile
for his nostalgic tale

never coming near what he wanted to say
only to realize
it never really was
she had a place in his life
he never made her think twice

as she rises to her apology
anybody else would surely know
he's watching her go
but what a fool believes he sees
no wise man has the power to reason away

what seems to be
is always better than nothing
and nothing at all keeps sending him

somewhere back in her long ago
where he can still believe there's a place in her life
someday, somewhere, she will return
she had a place in his life
he never made her think twice

as she rises to her apology
anybody else would surely know
he's watching her go
but what a fool believes he sees
no wise man has the power to reason away
what seems to be
is always better than nothing
there's nothing at all
but what a fool believes he sees
