Fooling Around

I reached out but you weren’t there.
I know I spent so long pushing you away
Pretending that I didn’t care.
Yet somehow I thought you’d stay,
I chose to believe in forever.
Yes I know, hindsight is a wonderful thing.

I was a fool thinking you’d never leave
Thinking the ties holding you here would never break.
I kidded myself you were easy to deceive
With all my sneaking around. Finding out how much punishment you’d take.
But all the time it was you fooling me.
Still, I’ve learned, hindsight is a wonderful thing.
