pyrite (fool’s gold) lyrics – frank ocean

“pyrite (fool’s gold)”

[verse 1:]
babe, just say you miss me, is it that hard?
too long since i’ve heard about our love
am i in this by myself? hey yeah
with rose colored lenses on my store bought frames
to see something other than these blues and grays
i need something different, hey yeah, yeah, yeah
cause you ain’t feeling the same

[hook:]
who knows, maybe i’m crazy, that’s one big maybe
but even a fool knows when it’s gold, gold, gold
i know pyrite from 24 karat, yeah
cubic’s from genuine diamond, yeah
a call from the woman who loves you and h*llo from a friend
i know when it’s real, i know how to tell
i know the difference between what you say and how you feel
oh, oh i know when it’s real

[verse 2:]
oh, i can tell the difference every time that you call
but i don’t need a drink i need some time in my car
time to drive and think, time to park and cry
you shoulda known you were beautiful
you shoulda known what i saw in you, yeah
please forgive me for feeling like it’s all your fault
a heavy heart can’t carry blame for the loss

[hook]

[verse 3:]
you might not notice but i’m a man with pride
and this hurts me baby deep down, deep down
i can’t let go of this, gotta know i tried
it’s pathetic baby don’t lie, don’t lie
i’m a candle, you’re the sun
and you’re burning baby, you’re burning baby
burning up, burning up
burning up, burning up, burning up, yeah

[outro:]
pyrite from 24 karat yeah
cubic’s from genuine diamond yeah
a call from the woman who loves you
and h*llo from a friend
we’ll never be more than friends
we’ll never be…
