lyrics

Every heart
Like every stage
Has the same stock parts
The one in distress
The hero to the rescue
And the villain lurking in the dark

Oh I wasn't sure
Which part you'd choose for me
If I wasn't your star
I hoped I'd play a lead

But I was just your fool

Is this one of those plays
Where only the fool is
Free to tell the truth?
Why should I care?
If you don't love me
Than what good does that truth do?

Someone rewrite this script
Turn its world upside down
Put a poor child on the throne
And make the queen love the clown

Cause I was just your fool

Tear up these rags I wore
Tear out the page
Tear down this sad, cheap set and
Burn down the stage

I won’t be your fool
