Beware the danger it lurks for those who get swept away
The dreamers get punished most by truth
They say it's all in a little ways
One reveals their love's gone away,
Love's gone away

When my hand was in your hand
My heart was pure
Now I see a different man
Rewriting memories
The dogs run down the beach
And all I'm left with
Is sand in my shoes,
Sand in my shoes

Fools like me
We love blindly
And the cracks don't count
It's gotta break in front of me

Now I recall that time at the caf©,
The thunderstorm outside
Words you could never say,
They hold the loudest tones
You say you'll write
But it's ink on a page,
Just ink on a page

Fools like me
Oh we love blindly
And the cracks don't count
It's gotta break in front of me

Tic toc the time
Distant look grows in your eye
But fools never ask
Afraid of what lurks in your mind
I always knew, somehow, always knew
I always knew the truth

Fools like me
Oh we never see
Cause the cracks don't count
It's gotta break in front of me
And it's breakin',
It's breakin',
It's breakin'
It's gotta break for me to see

At least I can say
I was not afraid
I loved you all the way
I'd pick the fool any day

    I think this song has many different meaning depending on how a particular person perceives it. I think she love this man who betrayed, abandoned, and changed the way he felt about her. In the beginning, she didn't see the warning signs (she was a fool.And she loved blindly), but later on in their relationship she felt like there was something wrong.Instead of confronting the problem she totally ignored it.

    this has got to be one of the songs that can make me feel really sad. Two things came into my mind when I first heard this song:
    1. Denial
    2. Hard Truth ~ "it's gotta break in front of me"
