Oh maybe I just wasn’t good enough
To blow your mind, you know I’ve tried
Them silver lines they cut like blades of glass
Not worth the blood we’ve shed for love

So give it up, start beating, hearts have gone cold
Had enough repeating, it’s all been done before
Give it up, start beating, hearts have gone cold
Hey now, when we gonna wake up?

But fools gold shines like diamonds in her eyes
Thought we had a million, but baby we got nothing
But fools gold shines like words that make us cry
We just keep on digging, find us something better
For the next time, next time
Something better, for the next time, next time

So maybe I just wasn’t strong enough
To tow the line, make true the lies
The fortune found, now it’s all locked away
We’ve lost the key, how to believe

So give it up, start beating, hearts have gone cold
Had enough repeating, it’s all been done before
Give it up, start beating, hearts have gone cold
Hey now, when we gonna wake up?

But fools gold shines like diamonds in her eyes
Thought we had a million, but baby we got nothing
But fools gold shines like words that make us cry
We just keep on digging, find us something better
For the next time, next time
Something better, for the next time, next time

Oh, baby, I just wasn’t good enough
'Cause, baby, I just wasn’t strong enough

But fools gold shines like diamonds in her eyes
Thought we had a million, but baby we got nothing
But fools gold shines like words that make us cry
We just keep on digging, find us something better

But fools gold shines like diamonds in her eyes
Thought we had a million, but baby we got nothing
But fools gold shines like words that make us cry
We just keep on digging, find us something better
For the next time, next time

Something better for the next time, next time
Something better for the next time, next time
Something better for the next time, next time

    My InterpretationIn the first verse, I believe that a person is thinking to himself that he wasn't good enough for his significant other in their relationship, but the person knows that he/she tried their hardest to keep the relationship together.

    The pre-chorus is about the speaker stating that they should both stop trying to make the relationship work because they have kept an on/off relationship for too long, and that he wonders when it will hit them that they will never work as a couple.

    The chorus then goes on about how they always end up back together with the mindset that their relationship will work now (But fools gold shines like diamonds in her eyes), and then goes on to explain how the speaker thought they had a connection but don't, and how they will continue to keep trying.

    The second verse then talks about how they both know that they don't connect but will not seek out the truth and/or had a connection at first but lost it for good (The fortune found, now it’s all locked away
    We’ve lost the key, how to believe).
