Description
Short Song Description:
It's about love that's not meant to be.
Long Song Description:
The observance of this quaint little tune is that no matter where you are, people are looking for love. Sadly, they don't always have their priorities in order, counting on the unimportant things.
Story Behind the Song:
James showed me the title (from one of many books he had filled with unfinished ideas) and it almost called out saying "Write me!" We wrote it in my Nashville loft. When I recorded this demo, I originally sang it in my natural voice, but my wife deteste

(chorus)
WHEN FOOLS FALL IN LOVE WITH FOOLS,
IT'LL ALWAYS BE TO NO AVAIL,
SHIPS LOST AT SEA WITHOUT SAILS,
OVER-EDUCATED IN THE BLUES,
THOSE FOOLS THAT FALL IN LOVE WITH FOOLS.

(verse)
DESTINED FOR DISASTER FROM THE START,
NO HOPE FOR BRUISED AND BROKEN HEARTS,
ALWAYS DISREGARDING ALL THE RULES,
THEY'RE LIKE CLOUSEAU'S WITHOUT A CLUE...

(chorus)
WHEN FOOLS FALL IN LOVE WITH FOOLS,
ODDS ARE THEY'LL NEVER BECOME WISE.
THEY SIT WITH VACANT BLOODSHOT EYES,
THAT'S WHY THEY INVENTED BARSTOOLS,
FOR FOOLS THAT FALL IN LOVE WITH FOOLS.

(verse)
TIME AFTER TIME IT'LL COME TO AN END.
THEY LIE AND PROMISE TO STAY FRIENDS.
THEN IT'S NOT LONG TILL THEY'RE DOING IT AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN,
IT'S CRUEL, WHAT HAPPENS WHEN,

(chorus)
FOOLS FALL IN LOVE WITH FOOLS,
CA NE SERVIRA A RIEN DU TOUT,
COMME DES BATEAUX PERDUS EN MER SANS VOILE,
TROP EDUCES MAIS DANS LES BLEUX,
CES FOUS QUI TOMBENT EN AMOUR AVEC DES FOUS.

(outro)
WHEN FOOLS FALL IN LOVE WITH FOOLS.
WHEN FOOLS FALL IN LOVE WITH FOOLS.
WHEN FOOLS ACT LIKE ME.
