Lyrics: For Shame of Doing Wrong/ I Wish I Was a Fool For You

Back

It seems like a lifetime since I saw you


Lover, lover, I’ve been away too long


When I see lovers holding hands and sighing


I hang my head for shame of doing wrong




Bus wheels spinning, songbirds singing, break my heart


Take me back to old remembered days


Remind me of the times we spent together


Times before we went our separate ways



I wish I was a fool for you again

I wish I was a fool for you again


I wish I was a fool for you again




I’m sorry for the things I’ve said, the things I’ve done


I’m sorry for the restless thief I’ve been


Please don’t make me pay for my deceiving heart


Just turn up your lamp and let me in



I wish I was a fool for you again


I wish I was a fool for you again


I wish I was a fool for you again
