"Lovin's For Fools" as written by and Siskind....
Crazy how I feel
Living without you
Inside this house that we built.
Seems like the window's
Finally open
Letting the memories out.

Go on and love her,
Love her forever
I will not tell her
You told me too
You'll never know dear
How much I love you.
Lovin's for fools
Lovin's for fools

Maybe you'll find me
walking in the garden
Looking for something pure
Roots that are growing
deeper and deeper,
maybe you'll pull them too.

Well go on and leave here
Leave here forever
No one can make you
Do what you do
You'll never know dear
How much I love you
Lovin's for fools
Lovin's for fools

    General Commenti cannot believe that nobody has said anything about this gorgeous song yet.

    it's about a woman whose husband/boyfriend/lover has left her for another woman.
    "go on and love her, lover her forever, i will not tell her you told me, too".
    apparently he is saying the same words he said to her to this new woman. now she is waiting to see if maybe his love with this new woman won't last either "maybe you'll pull them, too".

    overall this song is so beautiful and heartwrenching that it almost makes you want to have your heart broken, too.

    General Commentthis song is so beautiful, especially bon iver's and the bowerbirds cover of it.
    to me the song is communicating the way it feels when someone you want or care about or possibly love doesnt love you back, but instead loves someone else.
    its so sad because its like the narator or character singing the words understands that they cant make the person love them, they cant force the feelings, so they've resigned themselves to accepting that they cant change anything about the situation.
    its the knowlegde that two people arent quite each others that makes this song so emotive.
