Lyrics
I'm a fool but I love you so
With a love that burned into my very soul
Don't take my heart
Don't break my heart

The painted fool I'm your harlequin
I'm the court, jester with the silly grin
Don't take my heart
Don't break my heart

You fire my engine and you get me high
Then you cut my lifeline and you leave me dry
Don't take my heart
Don't break my heart

You sail your ship to the city streets
And you fall in love and flirt with everybody that you meet'a
Don't take my heart
Don't break my heart

Let the fool, live
Let the fool, live
Let the fool, live
Let the fool
Let the fool
Let that fool... live
Let him live

In a gun shop bloody on a midnight flight
In your tower block in the still of the night
Don't take my heart
Don't break my heart

A lie upon lie
A lie upon you
In the midnight city
See the sun come through
Don't take my heart
Don't break my heart

Let the fool, live
Let the fool live (let him live)
Let the fool, live
Let the fool
Let the fool, live
