CHRIS HILLMAN lyrics - Playing The Fool

CHRIS HILLMAN
"Playing The Fool"

I can see that you've been thinkin' twice
I know you ain't too sure at all
'bout this love we thought was yours and mine
Might be ripe for a fall

Packin' your bags, are you ready to leave
Don't deny it, can't you see
That I'm beggin' you please
Down on my knees
Breakin' my heart, tearin' me apart

'cause I'm playin' the fool for you
Gambled and lost, payin' the cost
I'm playin' the fool for you
No reason to cry, no reason to alibi

Nothin' ventured, nothin' lost
It's nobody's game to play
I rolled for speed
And I rode and got tossed
Just as much more to say

Smilin' faces don't tell no lies
We know in our hearts somethings die
Now I'm beggin' you please
I'm down on my knees
Breakin' my heart, tearin' me apart

'cause I'm playin' the fool for you
Gambled and lost, I'm payin' the cost
I'm playin' the fool for you
No reason to cry, no reason to alibi

Oh now I'm playin' the fool for you
I gambled and lost, I'm payin' the cost
I'm playin' the fool for you
No reason to cry, no reason to alibi
