only a fool lyrics – cerys matthews

only a fool to stick by your side

struck by your change of heart
straight into your arms
like a newborn child
straight into those open arms

i’m only a fool to stick by your side
struck by your change of heart
every day and every night
try as i might
you’re my black and you’re my white

i’ve got eyes on you
like you want me to

so i creep by your side no great surprise
all for your sweet surrender
the morning stands still
won’t let me in
and n*body hears me try

i need you, i need you
oh i need you
like i need salt in my water-
salt in my wounds, but i stay
cos i’m only a fool
to stick by your side
struck by that changing heart

straight into your arms,
your broken arms
straight into your open arms,
i never look behind
cos im only a fool,
i’m only a fool
