Thanks to Cees for singing on this one. The track evolved over many moons, expanded, shortened – guitars & effects added and taken out again. From each iteration some fragment was left – so it is a bit of a strange brew: quite some layers in this one. But the message remains – we are fools for love.

Carry on the moment
present itself right here,
gazing at the stage
wonder if the time is near.
Something I want to tell you
but it doesn’t feel right.
Checking all the lines
as soon as the bassdrum’s set.
She is a fool for love and she knows it
Well I am a fool for love and I know it.
She is coming,
she is going.
But a fool goes around:
no-one seems to try,
no-one seems to hide.
Things that I know I’ve had in mind.
And the fool for love ‘s been around:
she is a fool for love and she knows it.
