Song lyrics

  • Falling in love with love
    Is falling for make believe.
    Falling in love with love
    Is playing the fool;
    Caring too much is such a juvenile fancy.
    Learning to trust is just
    For children in school.
    I fell in love with love one night
    When the moon was full,
    I was unwise with eyes
    Unable to see.
    I fell in love with love,
    With love everlasting,
    But love fell out with me.
