Glen Hansard – Fool's Game lyrics
[Verse 1]
It’s a fool’s, fool’s game
Lover, that we have to play
Crashing into each other
No convalescing

It’s a leap of faith
Lover, that we blindly take
I’m taking it with you and no other
No hesitating

[Chorus 1]
And if our minds they go
And our bones they shatter
We’ll put it on nobody
But ourselves

[Verse 2]
It’s an old refrain
Lover, that we hear again
Urging a cautious measure
Sounding a warning

It’s a thin escape
Lover, that we hope to make
When we’re beaten, broken and battered
Beyond consoling

[Chorus 2]
And the breezes blow
And to the winds we’re scattered
And we’re fending for nobody
But ourselves


[Verse 3]
It’s a fool’s, fool’s game
When you’ve nothing but a heart to break
Better keep on breaking it, lover
Until it opens

It’s a speeding train
Beating through the pouring rain
With no way to slow or stop it
And the tracks are broken

[Chorus 3]
Like a rising wave
Through the storms we gather
And we’re falling on nobody
But ourselves


[Outro: Aida Shahghasemi]
چه دانستم که این سودا مرا زین سان کند مجنون
دلم را دوزخی سازد دو چشمم را کند جیحون
