lyrics

FOOLISH TO ASSUME
Thought I knew the answer when I was just a boy
I had that dumb resolve that nothing could destroy
But I've grown flimsy now as many years have passed
Learned the hard way yeah that nothing really lasts
Perfect like it was in the past

And oh the injustice of it all
It's been tearing at my soul for way too long
Wondering where the hell I went wrong
See what I've become and move on

She used to come around maybe once or twice a year
Plans to the wayside, playing everything by ear
Late night rendezvous in the backseat of my car
Feelings left unsaid just in case we missed the bar
But you know I never could see that far

Things I deprive myself of
For reasons vague to me now
How do you like me now

Thought I knew it all when I was just a kid
I never put much thought into the selfish things I did
But all that stupid shit has caught up to me now
Made me wanna kick and scream and cuss out loud
When I learned what all the fuss was about

And oh the injustice of it all
It's been tearing at my soul for way too long
Nights I'm still baying at the moon
It can get like this when I'm lonely in my room
It was foolish to assume anything
Just where I belong
Wondering where the hell I went wrong
See what I've become and move on
