  • Oh, I tried to make the best of
    All the sweet love that you gave me
    Maybe I'm crazy
    But I keep on losing ground

    Fool that I am, fool that I may be
    When will I ever know what's true
    And if I found out differently
    Would I still love you?

    Two hearts breakin', two hearts achin'
    Someone's takin' more than they gave
    Trusting in someone
    Who has no trust in me

    Fool that I am, fool that I may be
    When will I ever know what's true
    And if I found out differently
    Would I still love you?

    Fool that I am, fool that I may be
    When will I ever know what's true
    And if I found out differently
    Would I still love you?
    Would I still love you? Writer/s: BRUCE ROBERTS, CAROLE N BAYER-SAGER

  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdThis was not the first time Rita Coolidge had sung a Carole Bayer Sager song. She earlier had a hit with the Peter Allen-Carole Bayer Sager "I'd Rather Leave While I'm in Love" which was also a song about breaking up. Bruce Robers and Sager also wrote the comical "Moving Out Today" for Bette Midler which Carole also recorded. Both songwriters recorded at least three albums with big name musicians but were never successful on her own. Coolidge was best known for doing remakes of songs like Boz Scaggs' "We're All Alone" and Jackie Wilson's "Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher and Higher".
