​Fortunate Fool

This song is by The New Amsterdams and appears on the album At The Foot Of My Rival (2007).

Take a walk on the wrong side
And put your feet on the floor
A long face for a long night
Really what you came here for

And how did it end, say everything
A long form letter that you'll keep forever
You're upside down, gave you the run around
Shouted the words aloud, our love is a battleground

Swallow a bitter pill
Maybe the poison will
Take you on a long road to forget
What you came here for

Say hello to the wrong side
Here we go again
Hang on, it's a long ride
Never seems to end

But how did it end, say everything
A long form letter that you'll keep forever
You're upside down, gave you the run around
Shouting the words aloud, love is a battleground

Swallow a bitter pill
Maybe the poison will
Take you on a long road to forget
What you came here

Fortunate fool
Love got the best of you
This is just so cruel
But it's the truth

You, fortunate fool
Love got the best of you
This is just so cruel
But it's the truth, oh
