Kenny Rogers – The Fool Inl Me lyrics

The fool in me.

Well, I wonder, wonder, wonder just why it is
That I sit around here and I cry
Is it just because I'm too weak to take the loss?
I walk away knowing that I really care down deep inside.

Or is it just the fool in me ( is it just the fool in me )
Keeps me hanging on
When I should have been gone?
Is it just the fool in me ( is it just the fool in me )
That won't let me live without you?
Oh honey, I think it's just the fool in me, darling
I think it's just the fool in me,
Keeps me hanging on
I can't seem to help myself. ( at all ).

And I have promised, I have promised
I made promises to myself
I would stay no longer
But every time I say "I've had enough"
I start to step but my shoes get stuck
And all I seem to do is stand and say
"I want you, girl",
Maybe it's the fool in me ( maybe it's the fool in me )
Keeps me hanging on ....

And I love, I love you, I love you, I love you
Ah, look how close I came!,
Ah, tell myself just don't do it again
Ah, just when I feel I'm on my way
All I ever seem to do is stay.
