"Who Are We Fooling?" as written by Brooke Fraser and Matt Hayles....
So we're back here again
Tiptoeing 'round the edge of the end
Wondering who will be last to admit
That we're finally over
Turned 21 on the day that we met
Terrible shoes, implausible dress
It's funny how sad the funny things get as you grow older

Better or worse but what else can we do
When better or worse I am tethered to you
If it's not either of us tell me who are we fooling

I learnt the art of biting my tongue
I tired of trying to guess what was wrong
Both agreed on where we should go, but not how to get there
We tried and tried to loosen the knots
Thinking once we're untangled we'll be better off
But it's these failures and faults that hold us together

Better or worse but what else can we do
When better or worse I am tethered to you
If it's not either of us tell me who are we fooling

This beautiful tangle that's bruising us blue
Is the beautiful knot that we just can't undo
Together we're one but apart tell me who are we fooling

'Cause real love is hard love
It's all we have
It's a break neck
Train wreck
It's all we have
So we're back here again
Turning away from the edge of the end
Arm in arm

Better or worse but what else can we do
When better or worse I am tethered to you
If it's not either of us tell me who are we fooling

This beautiful tangle that's bruising us blue
Is the beautiful knot that we just can't undo
If it's not either of us tell me who are we fooling
Together we're one but apart tell me who are we fooling

    My InterpretationThis song is very uplifting to me. I agree with the other user; it appears to be about a couple who are about to get a divorce because of all the issues they have but end up deciding against it because they realize that although love is hard, it's all they have. Happy, gorgeous song. :)
