April's Fool
 
Lyrics
VERSE
I went to work one day and there she was
The new kid on the block
By quittin' time I was so in love
I forgot to punch the clock

VERSE
It was the first of April; I will never forget
She was starin' back at me
One April later, we agreed to agree
I was her guy; she was the best

CHORUS
(But) Now I'm April's fool
Yes, I'm April's fool
I gave her my heart
Then she broke all the rules
But, Lord, I'm still April's fool

VERSE
Life with her was everything to me
She was heaven sent
But I guess the devil has blue eyes and wears blue jeans
'Cause April came and April went

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
Just let me get to May, then find my way to June
I never thought forever, Lord, would end so soon

Repeat CHORUS

RIDE

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Yes, Lord, I'm still April's fool
