I'd Rather Be A Fool

Written 3-6-2008

Verse 1:
I rather be a fool for love
than the smartest person without it
I'd rather break my heart wide open
than to keep it safely closed
yes I'd rather be a fool for love
for the alternative is like dieing
I'd rather take a chance on you
even if we end up crying crying

Refrain:
if I never took a chance
if I never stepped out
if I never really danced
I would never hear you shout
if I never played the fool
if I never got hurt
if I never said to you
you're my heaven on earth
love is heaven on earth
love is heaven on earth ah ha
love is heaven on earth ooh yea

Verse 2:
I rather be a fool for love
it always hurts me so sweetly
I'd rather follow the unknown path
to go where my heart leads me
I'd rather be a fool for love
I've spent too much time hiding
it's time to explore the wide open space
enjoy the wave of love we're riding riding

Refrain.

love is heaven on earth ah ha
love is heaven on earth ooh yea
ah ha
ooh yea
