Phosphorescent – Heartaches Of A Fool lyrics

I started out with the dreams
And plans of a wise man
Ended up with the heartaches of a fool

As a boy I would walk through the valley
And gaze at the world all around
I made a vow that somehow
I would find fame and fortune
I found it but look at me now

I had a sweetheart who would love me forever
I didn't need her, I would reign all alone
Now look at me, I'm the king of a cold lonely castle
The queen of my heart is gone

So gather around me, you fools for a dollar
And listen to me, the lesson you'll learn
Is well there's happiness and love
Yeah, sent from heaven above
And the fires of ambition will burn

Started out with the dreams
And the plans of a wise man
Ended up with the heartaches of a fool
