Intro

I can see right through you, but you can never tell.

Guess I can play the role of a fool pretty well.

Verse 1

You've always got an excuse hanging at the tip of your tongue,

You've always got another lie ready to roll out of your lips.

I've always danced to the tune of every song you've ever sung,

That's why you don't have a freaking clue about the score that I keep.

Chorus

And you'll be fooled

By how I'll play it cool-

Fooled by my love, fooled by my sweet smile-

I haven't been fooled by your words now for a while.

I can see right through you, but you can never tell.

Guess I can play the role of a fool pretty well.

Guess I can play the role of a fool pretty well.

Guess I can play the role of a fool pretty well.

Verse 2

A love struck fool, blind and naïve, wow, that's what you think of me.

Don't you worry, I'm not planning to pay you back for what you did.

I'm just protecting myself from you stealing away my glee,

I need you to keep thinking you're behind your mask, and I'm stupid.

Chorus

And you'll be fooled

By how I'll play it cool-

Fooled by my love, fooled by my sweet smile-

I haven't been fooled by your words now for a while.

I can see right through you, but you can never tell.

Guess I can play the role of a fool pretty well.

Guess I can play the role of a fool pretty well.

Guess I can play the role of a fool pretty well.

Bridge

You're slowly being untangled,

Being weeded out from my head,

You can't mess with it, can't manipulate,

But I'll make you think you can,

Because you're that kind of man,

Who gets satisfaction from knowing he's in control,

I'll give you that, I don't have problems trying to console

Somebody as twisted as you, I'm not that frail.

But I can play the role of a fool just as well.

Yeah, I can play the role of a fool pretty well.

Chorus

And you'll be fooled

By how I'll play it cool-

Fooled by my love, fooled by my sweet smile-

I haven't been fooled by your words now for a while.

I can see right through you, but you can never tell.

Guess I can play the role of a fool pretty well.

Guess I can play the role of a fool pretty well.

Guess I can play the role of a fool pretty well.

Chorus

And you'll be fooled

By how I'll play it cool-

Fooled by my love, fooled by my sweet smile-

I haven't been fooled by your words now for a while.

I can see right through you, but you can never tell.

Guess I can play the role of a fool pretty well.

Guess I can play the role of a fool pretty well.

Guess I can play the role of a fool pretty well.
