Fool

This song is by Cat Power and appears on the album You Are Free (2003).

Apartment in New York, London and Paris
Where will we rest? We're all living on top of it
It's all that we have, the USA's our daily bread
And no one is willing to share it

Why can't we see our fortunancy
Living as legends have lived
Bane and dismannered
We coax all the time
Knowing that nothing is left when we die

Come along, fool
A direct hit to the senses, you're disconnected
It's not that it's bad, it's not that it's death
It's just on the tip of your tongue and you're so silent

Wanting to live and laugh all the time
Sitting alone with the tea and your crime
Children with kids and people with parents
Any which way there's no past and no present
When the day comes and all of them bums
Will reveal enchanting persons

Come along, fool
A direct hit to the senses, you're disconnected
It's not that it's bad, it's not that it's death
It's just that it's on the tip of your tongue and you're so silent

When it's a rut and baby's no luck
Half of it's misunderstanding love
The war we have won, we're winning again
Within ourselves and within our friends

Come along, fool
A direct hit to the senses you're disconnected
It's not that it's bad, it's not that it's death
It's just that it's on the tip of your tongue and you're so silent
