Words Of A Fool Lyrics – Barry Gibb & Jason Isbell

I gaze in your eyes now
But you’re not in sight
Just a picture of someone
I lie with each night
Long may love live here
You fill up my home
And though you’re not with me now
I won’t be alone

Now wisdom is fine
But the heart leads the way
And nothing can change my memory
Like a wise man I patiently wait

No matter how long
Human nature is cruel
But all hope is gone
If you don’t act on
The words of a fool

Now times may be tough
But we must survive
And I’d rather be dead with you
Than go on alive

That’s my one obsession
My Christian belief
For he who has loved and lost
Then loved he shall be

Now wisdom is fine
But the heart leads the way
And nothing can change my memories
Like a wise man I patiently wait

No matter how long
Human nature is cruel
But all hope is gone
If you don’t act on
The words of a fool

But all hope is gone
If you don’t act on
The words of a fool
