​When a Fool Learns

This song is by Gene Watson and appears on the album Back In The Fire (1989).

Wish I was in your shoes
I wish you were hurtin' me instead of me hurtin' you
I wish that you were walkin' out on me again
Wish I could feel your heart
'Cause I know the way it feels to be left broken apart
I wish that I could be your fool right to the end

But when a fool learns how to say it's over
When a fool leaves he's never coming back
Once he's learned his lesson there's no one quite as strong
When a fool learns how to say goodbye, he's gone

I wish I still loved you
I wish that fire still raged inside like it used to do
I wish that I could hold you and pretend it does
I wish my heart was wrong
I wish that I could fight it but the feeling's all gone
Wish I was that forgiving fool I always was

But when a fool learns how to say it's over
When a fool leaves he's never coming back
Once he's learned his lesson there's no one quite as strong
When a fool learns how to say goodbye, he's gone

When a fool learns how to say it's over
When a fool leaves he's never coming back
Once he's learned his lesson there's no one quite as strong
(Fade) When a fool learns how to say goodbye, he's gone
