lyrics

They’d like to think they know you more than I do
but the parts they know about you, they’re so small
The pieces that are known to me, the ones that you have shown to me,
they’ve slipped into a mem’ry I can’t recall
Walkin’ past the boys that always stumble
You’re the prettiest damn girl in any given room
When you speak to me I tend to mumble
something about being alone with you

‘Cause I think I am a desperate young fool
I might be a desperate young fool in love
And if my love was desperately cruel
could you love a desperate young fool in love?

They somehow let their jealousy corrupt and so convincingly
persuade you that they’re meant to be with you
You just laugh or you cry while you stare right into their eyes
and never tell them what they’ve said just isn’t true
We said, “goodbye” after sunday breakfast
You were going down to Austin to start school
Monday, I was driving down to Texas
wondering what I was gonna say to you
I’m on the verge of a shiver
I don’t wanna be her “something new”
With all of the love that I could give her
I wanna be something tried and true
But if I am a desperate young fool
I would be a desperate young fool in love
And if my love was desperately cruel
could you love a desperate young fool in love?
