Doobie Brothers — What A Fool Believes lyrics

He came from somewhere back in her long ago
The sentimental fool don't see
Tryin' hard to recreate
What had yet to be created once in her life

She musters a smile for his nostalgic tale
Never coming near what he wanted to say
Only to realize
It never really was

She had a place in his life
He never made her think twice
As he rises to her apology
Anybody else would surely know
He's watching her go

But what a fool believes... He sees
No wise man has the power to reason away
What seems... To be
Is always better than nothing
And nothing at all keeps sending him...

Somewhere back in her long ago
Where he can still believe there's a place in her life
Someday, somewhere, she will return

She had a place in his life
He never made her think twice
As he rises to her apology
Anybody else would surely know
He's watching her go

But what a fool believes... He sees
No wise man has the power to reason away
What seems... To be
Is always better than nothing
There's nothing at all
What seems... To be
Is always better than nothing
There's nothing at all
But what a fool believes he sees...
No wise man has the power to reason away
What seems... To be
Is always better than nothing
