A natural fool, another race, holding court right in my face
With a spacey, toothy grin, sayin' ain't nobody in
Just a pure and natural waste, have you seen her anyplace?
This is only for your ear
I'm supposed to keep her here
Unlucky little hapless bright
She'd be lost out in the night
Don't even know enough to fear
And suddenly she'll just appear
Like a catch, a snag, a hitch
Leave you standing in a ditch
I keep saying to myself it's over, that's the end
But it's so long , she's like a friend
Like an old familiar itch , and as a fool, she's really rich
Although I'm unaware now and then, I know she's there
Living, gazing through my eyes
The fool in me I realize
The part of me that helps me be
The part of me that's really me

A heart that's true, there are such things
A dream for two, there are such things
Someone to whisper Darling you're my guiding star
Not caring what you own but just what you are

A peaceful sky, there are such things
A rainbow high where heaven sings
So have a little faith and trust in what tomorrow brings
You'll reach a star because there are such things

So have a little faith and trust in what tomorrow brings
You'll reach a star because there are such things
