ONLY A FOOL BREAKS HIS OWN HEART
WRITERS NORMAN BERGEN, SHELLY COBURN

Why do I go on fooling myself;
When I know you love somebody else;
Only a fool, breaks his own heart;
I pretend I don't see;
You walking with him on the street;
Only a fool, breaks his own heart;
I have to admit, even though it hurt me so;
I can't forget. If I'm a man, I'll let you go;
There's no sense in holding on;
To an old love that's gone;
Only a fool, breaks his own heart;
I have to accept, even though it hurt me so;
I can't forget. If I'm a man, I'll let you go;
There's no sense in holding on;
To an old love that's gone;
Only a fool, breaks his own heart;
Only a fool, breaks his own heart
