One Direction – Fool's Gold lyrics

[Verse 1: Niall Horan]
I'm like a crow on a wire
You're the shining distraction that makes me fly, oh

I'm like a boat on the water
You're the rays on the waves that calm my mind
Oh, every time


[Pre-Chorus: Harry Styles]
But I know in my heart, you're not a constant star

[Chorus: Harry Styles]
And yeah, I let you use me from the day that we first met
But I'm not done yet, falling for your
Fool's gold

And I knew then, you turned it on for everyone you met
But I don't regret falling for your
Fool's gold


[Verse 2: Liam Payne]
I'm the first to admit that I'm reckless
I get lost in your beauty and I can't see, two feet in front of me


[Pre-Chorus: Louis Tomlinson]
And I know in my heart, you're just a moving part

[Chorus:]
And yeah, I let you use me from the day that we first met
But I'm not done yet, falling for your
Fool's gold

And I knew then, you turned it on for everyone you met
But I don't regret falling for your
Fool's gold

[Bridge: Zayn Malik]
Yeah, I know your love's not real
That's not the way it feels
That's not the way you feel


[Chorus:]
And yes, I let you use me from the day that we first met
But I'm not done yet, falling for your
Fool's gold
And I knew then, you turned it on for everyone you met
But I don't regret falling for your
Fool's gold

    The singers in the song are telling the story of how the girl was playing them the entire relationship as you can see in the song title. Everything about her was so intoxicating that he can't let her go. The entire time she's just playing him and he knows this. But yet he can't keep himself from falling in move with her even though it not real. He's so deep in this relationship and she doesn't care about him at all. So when she leaves he feels like he loves her so much that he doesn't regret it. He was blinded by her beauty and everything she does he couldn't see that she is poison. And even though what she did was terrible beyond acceptance, he'll still love her. And even though he knew she'd had reputation of doing it he doesn't blame her. He'd love her no matter what.

    In this song if you know what the phrase fools gold means and listen to the lyrics I feel like it's about being used to benefit someone else but he knows he is beings used but she doesn't know he knows-sorry I just quoted friends. But he knows he's being used but throughout this so called relationship he keeps falling more and more in love with her and when she gets what she wanted and leaves. He can't get over her even though it wasn't a real relationship he developed real feelings for someone and he isn't ready to let go of her but she doesn't feel the same.

    The singers are saying the girls using them and they don't care because she's pretty. They saying she's just messing around with them, and he's thinking its real. She fooling them and they don't care. They don't regret it falling for her tricks. This song reminds of a couple from my school. The guy was thought it was real, and the girl who's kinda pretty was fooling around with the guy. Now he sees it and got away from her. But I think he doesn't regret. This song explains the guy's point of view for when a girl plays him.
