Fool for Love - Lord Huron

I'm leaving this place behind
​And I'm heading out on the road tonight
​I'm off for the hinterlands
​Way up north to have taught you to stand
​Before I commence my ride
​I'm asking Lily to be my bride
​I know there's another man
​But he ain't gonna delay my plans
​
​I know she's gonna be my wife
​Gonna fall in love I'm gonna live my life with her
​You know I bet he's not so tough
​Ain't afraid of him cause I'm a fool for love
​
​I've come far to find Big Jim
​Well here I am and I guess you him
​I see how you got your name
​You're tall as hell and broad as a train
​They say you a hard-born man
​And the baddest guy in the whole wide land
​Well I'm not afraid to fight
​Let's step outside and I'll show you why
​
​I'm humming like a revved up truck
​Never mind the odds I'm gonna try my luck with her
​Just tell me when you've had enough
​I'm dangerous cause I'm a fool for love
​
​You know you don't hit half bad
​For my love I will lay in the grave tonight
​Just wait until I catch my breath
​Gonna send you off to an early death
​
​I lie in the drifting snow
​Bleeding out as it covers me up
​If Spring comes before I'm found
​Just throw my bones in a hole in the ground
​
​I lost friends along my way
​I knew I'd need them eventually
​No I'm not afraid to die
​Just mad I left Big Jim alive
​
​I know I should've never looked back
​But you ain't gonna win a woman's heart like that
​I never should've called his bluff
​I was born to lose cause I'm a fool for love
​
​I stare into the endless sky
​And the sordid tale of my life go by
​I drift into the great unknown
​I really don't know where I'm going
​
I stare into the endless sky
And the sordid tale of my life go by
I drift into the great unknown
I really don't know where I'm going
