(Instrumental opening-one full verse)


Fools rush in where angels fear to tread

And so I come to you, my love, my heart above my head

Though I see the danger there

If there's a chance for me then I don't care


Fools rush in where wise men never go

But wise men never fall in love so how are they to know

When we met I felt my life begin

So open up your heart and let this fool rush in


(Instrumental close--one full verse)
