Lyrics
Fooltown
©2006 Doug Kidder

Was a place where I thought I’d be
Living life with some certainty
But I’ll be alright
Yeah I’ll be alright

Did you say that you couldn’t stay
Did you say there would come a day
But you don’t know when
No you don’t know when

Prechorus
Someday never came my way and I just don’t understand
Why you said messing with my head that you’d take another stand (1st time around) (2 time around) a final stand
Why you said messing with my head that you found another man (last chorus at end)

CHORUS
Fooltown that’s where I live
Fooltown that’s where I give
Fooltown that’s what I do
Fooltown I’m a fool for you
Fooltown that’s all I know (last chorus)
Fooltown lord I got to go (last chorus)
Fooltown

If you see me on the street
Shouldn’t bother shouldn’t greet
Yeah I’ll be alright
You know I’ll be alright

Remember when we were best of friends
Now we meet and it’s all pretend
And I don’t know why
No I don’t know why

CHORUS

Is it strange when you rearrange
Your life's so fast can you make it last
Don’t know why
Don’t know why

Do you see when you look at me
A different life without misery
You’ll be alright
Yeah you’ll be alright

CHORUS x2
