​Fool For Love

This song is by Lord Huron and appears on the album Strange Trails (2015).

I'm leaving this place behind
And I'm heading out on the road tonight
I'm off for the hinterlands
Way up north to have taught you to stand
Before I commence my ride
I'm asking Lily to be my bride
I know there's another man
But he ain't gonna delay my plans

I know she's gonna be my wife
Gonna fall in love I'm gonna live my life with her
You know I bet he's not so tough
Ain't afraid of him 'cause I'm a fool for love

I've come far to find Big Jim
Well here I am and I guess you him
I see how you got your name
You're tall as hell and broad as a train
They say you a hard-born man
And the baddest guy in the whole wide land
Well I'm not afraid to fight
Let's step outside and I'll show you why

I'm humming like a revved up truck
Never mind the odds I'm gonna try my luck with her
Just tell me when you've had enough
I'm dangerous 'cause I'm a fool for love

You know you don't hit half bad
For my love I will lay in the grave tonight
Just wait until I catch my breath
Gonna send you off to an early death

I lie in the drifting snow
Bleeding out as it covers me up
If Spring comes before I'm found
Just throw my bones in a hole in the ground

I lost friends along my way
I knew I'd need them eventually
No I'm not afraid to die
Just mad I left Big Jim alive

I know I should've never looked back
But you ain't gonna win a woman's heart like that
I never should've called his bluff
I was born to lose 'cause I'm a fool for love

I stare into the endless sky
And the sordid tale of my life go by
I drift into the great unknown
I really don't know where I'm going

I stare into the endless sky
And the sordid tale of my life go by
I drift into the great unknown
I really don't know where I'm going
