well I spread all the joy, spread all the joy
all over the world
and I just wind up here, year after year
no better, just worse
and I've less energy to love and to be
the person I am
and the people I see make me angry, not happy

but it's fools like me who could take all this
from a serpent's bite to a tender kiss
and it's fools like me who can't live long enough
to explain… or change… anything

can't return to the past, before I broke that glass
on the cold concrete floor
I'm so frozen and stuck, feel so down on my luck
locked door after locked door
and there's glimpses of things, impossible springs
of beauty, crystal and clear
but just as I touch, just as I learn to love
it's like it never was here

because it's fools like me who could take all this
from a serpent's bite to a tender kiss
and it's fools like me who can't live long enough
to explain

and it's fools like me who will watch their souls
drain slowly away down invisible holes
and the world lights up, then goes dark again, and again
and again

but i remember the bits, the wonderful bits
so brilliant and few
all colored with loves in candlelit bars (??)
and colored by you
and with all the fools, the millions of fools
oh, one for every star
I'll keep writing these tunes, and took over my blues
at least until it's too hard

because it's fools like me who could take all this
from a serpent's bite to a tender kiss
and it's fools like me who can't live long enough
to explain

and it's fools like me who will watch their souls
drain slowly away down invisible holes
and the world lights up, then goes dark again, and again
and again
and again
