"Everybody Plays The Fool" as written by and R. Clark K. Williams....
Okay, so your heart is broken
You sit around mopin'
Cryin' and cryin'
You say you're even thinkin' about dyin'
Well, before you do anything rash, dig this

Everybody plays the fool sometime
There's no exception to the rule
Listen, baby, it may be factual, may be cruel
I ain't lyin', everybody plays the fool
Falling in love is such an easy thing to do
And there's no guarantee that the one you love
Is gonna love you
Oh-oh-oh, lovin' eyes they cannot see
A certain person could never be
Love runs deeper than any ocean
You can cloud your mind with emotion
Everybody plays the fool, sometime
There's no exception to the rule
Listen, baby, it may be factual, may be cruel
I want to tell ya that
Everybody plays the fool

How can you help it when the music starts to play
And your ability to reason is swept away
Oh-oh-oh, heaven on earth is all you see
You're out of touch with reality
And now you cry but when you do
Next time around someone cries for you

Everybody plays the fool, sometime
They use your heart like a tool
Listen, baby, they never tell you so in school
I want to say it again
Everybody plays the fool
Listen to me, baby

Everybody plays the fool, sometime
(No exception) no exception to the rule
It may be factual, may be cruel, sometime
But everybody plays the fool
Listen, listen, baby
Everybody plays the fool, sometime
They use your heart like a tool

    General CommentI agree so much. It is so sad, but true but everybody plays the fool. You may fall in love with someone and they might not feel the same as you do. You can't force someone to care if they don't. You just have to move on and know that there is somebody who does care. It may not be the person you fell so deeply for. But, you may find that the other person you thought you were so in love with wasn't right for you in the first place.
    The same person who rejected you has been or will be eventually rejected by someone else the way they rejected you. It is just reality. The Law Of Karma and The Wheel of Fortune basically relate to this song. In life everyone has their ups and downs. Sometimes you lose and sometimes you win.

    General Commentthis song is so true. the line
    "And now you cry but when you do
    Next time around someone cries for you"
    goddamn that is a good lyric. its messed up how it works out like that, but it does.
    and also the line "there's no guarantee that the one you love Is gonna love you"

    this song helped me get through some hard times, and it actually made me feel better. i realized that Shit happens, and it happens to the best of us sometimes.
    But EVERYBODY plays the fool.
