I've been a fool, by The Neech

My friends keep asking me why they don't see you anymore
It seems that at the time I didn't know what I was looking for
Nobody knows, nobody knows but you

I was just playing games while you were giving me your heart
Love is a two way street and I wasn't doing my part
Nobody knows, nobody knows but you

I made a fool out of you
I made a fool out of you and I'm sorry

I know now that you were the best thing that ever happened to me
I close my eyes and try to remember the way you used to be
Nobody knows, nobody knows but you

I miss you so much and I miss all the things that we used to do
If I had known what I know today I would have held on to you
I've been a fool, I've been a fool

I think I did a little growing after you went away
What keeps me going is the hope that you'll take me back some day
Nobody knows, nobody knows but you

I hold on to memories of how good together we were
So baby give me one more chance to show you that I care
Nobody knows, nobody knows but me

I'll make a queen out of you
I'll make a queen out of you 'cause I love you
