Dr. Dog – Fool's Life lyrics

If I told you all my secrets they'd be lies
If I die a happy man, it's 'cuz I finally learned to die
I've lived a fool's life, I've lived a fool's life
Now I'm dying

Wanted you to turn and walk back in
Oh, they have come here by mistake
But I'll take what I can take
I've lived a fool's life, I've lived a fool's life, baby
And now I'm dying

Would you say dark has sunlight?
(Sun in dark and light)
Have I ever done anything right?
I ought to kill me
(I haven't got the right)
And do you mind if we come along?
(I wouldn't mind at all)
Would you please sing that song you just sung?

Oh life is just some living with an end
I would've done so many things
You would've done if you were me
I've lived a fool's life, I've lived a fool's life, baby
And now I'm dying

I'm dying!
I'm dying!
I'm dying!
I'm dead!
