Fool For Love ~ Vuyani Ntshingila



People say you played me for a fool,
I was to blind to see,
I was blinded by love so you made me a fool,
I heard rumours about you,
I was to deaf to hear,
I loved you but became your fool


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Some say I was stupid,
Others say I got caught up in the moment,
Some say I tripped,
Some say you took me for a trip,

I loved you too deeply to realise
What you were,
You were a liar and a cheat,
A snake under a beautiful skin,

I woke up on the floor and realised I fell for you
