  • Don't be a fool
    Don't give your nights to someone else
    While giving days to those who really love you
    Don't be a fool like me
    And give your life to someone else
    While faking love to those who really love you

    Why couldn't I have realized
    The gravity of telling lies
    Whose weight now shows upon your faceless mound
    I know your heart now and before
    But I won't do it anymore
    Trust in me and fall in love again

    Listen to these charms
    'Cause baby I'm not fooling
    And fall into these open arms of love
    Listen to these charms
    'Cause baby I'm not fooling
    And fall into these open arms of love
    Listen to these charms
    'Cause baby I'm not fooling around
    And fall into these open arms of love

    Why couldn't I have realized
    The gravity of tears in eyes
    Whose weight now shows upon your faceless smile
    I broke your heart now and before
    But I won't do it anymore
    Trust in me and fall in love again

    Listen to these charms
    'Cause baby I'm not fooling
    And fall into these open arms of love
    Listen to these charms
    'Cause baby I'm not fooling
    And fall into these open arms of love
    Listen to these charms
    'Cause baby I'm not fooling around
    And fall into these open arms of love
    And fall into these open arms of love
    And fall into these open arms of love Writer/s: GREGORY PORTER
