"Fools" as written by Daniel James Goudie, Ryan Walter and Lauren Aquilina....
Those hardest to love need it most
I watched our bodies turn to ghosts
Such good friends, it has to end, it always does
That's the way life is
Do we take that risk?

And so it all boils down to this
We've got our aim but we might miss
We are too fragile just to guess
And I've been in this place before
Fine as we are but we want more
That's human nature at its best

What if we ruin it all?
And we love like fools
And all we have we'll lose
I don't want you to go
But I want you so
So tell me what we choose

Friends, I watched us as we changed
The feelings in my headspace rearranged
I want you more than I've wanted anyone
Isn't that dangerous?

The anticipation before the kiss
Mirrored in my shaking lips
Oh god I feel so unprepared
The two of us so out of place
My feelings written on my face
Got what I want but now I'm scared

What if we ruin it all?
And we love like fools
And all we have we'll lose
I don't want to watch you go
But I want you so
So tell me what
Tell me what we choose
What we choose

What if we ruin it all?
And we love like fools
And all we have we'll lose
I don't want to watch you go
But I want you so
So tell me what
Tell me what
Tell me what we choose

    General CommentI find this song to be about two people who are good friends and them find themselves wanting more and this person is expressing her fear that if they jump into something, it could ruin their friendship. "I don't want you to go, but I want you so". She means that she is afraid of screwing it up and losing him if it doesn't work out, but it's too hard to deny her feelings for him and pretend to just be friends.
