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

When my hand was in your hand my heart was pure
And 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

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

Now I recall the time at the cafe
The thunderstorm outside
Words you could never say
They hold the loudest tones
They say you're right
But it's ink on a page
Just ink on a page

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

Tick-tock the time
Distant look grows in your eyes
And fools never ask
Afraid what lurks in your eyes
I always knew, somehow always knew
I always knew the truth

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

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