Lyrics
April fools, April fools
April fools, April fools
April fools, April fools
April fools, April fools

In an April dream, once you came to me
You smiled, I looked into your eyes
And I knew I'd be loving you and
Then you touched my hand
And I knew April dreams could come true

Are we just April fools
Who can't see all the danger around?
Are we just April fools?
I don't care, true love has found us now

April fool, true love's found us now
April fool, true love's found us now

Little did we know, where the road would lead
Here we are a million miles away
From the past, travelin' so fast and
There is no turning back
If our sweet April dream doesn't last

Are we just April fools
Who can't see all the danger around us?
Are we're just April fools?
I don't care, true love has found us now

April fool, true love's found us now
April fool, true love's found us now
April fool, true love's found us now
April fool, true love's found us now

Little did we know where the road would lead
Here we are a million miles away
From the past, travelin' so fast
And there's no turning back
If our sweet April dream doesn't last

Are we just April fools
Who can't see all the danger around us?
Are we're just April fools?
I don't care, true love has found us now

April fool, true love's found us now
April fool, true love's found us now
April fool, true love's found us now
April fool, true love's found us now

April fools, April fools
April fools, April fools
April fools, April fools
April fools, April fools

April fool, true love's found us now
April fool, true love's found us now
April fool, true love's found us now
April fool, true love's found us now
