Patty Loveless – Richest Fool Alive lyrics

There's just no way of goin' back to change what's come and gone
But if I could go back in time I'd undo what you've done
I wouldn't look into your eyes and go completely blind
Or listen to your pretty words and leave my heart behind
If heartache were treasures and pain could be sold
If dreams were made of silver and promises of gold
Teardrops were diamonds measured in lies
I'd have a broken heart worth millions and be the richest fool alive
[ fiddle ]
Next time I listen to my friends take their advice to heart
And avoid all of this misery I could've ended from the start
But fools in love don't listen they don't know right from wrong
They see just what they wanna see and miss it when it's gone
If heartaches were treasure...
I'd have a broken heart worth millions and be the richest fool alive
