"Wo is more foolish? The fool or the fool who follows him?" -Obi-wan Kenobi

[I'm runnin' out of time'
[And summer is too
[I follow her
[But she follows you
[I don’t know where to go
[So I continue
[To live in defeat
[And shame from you

I try to get out
To find a reason
To not follow her
And waste this season
And still I can’t help
Losing sleep over her
My feelings won’t leave
I want her for sure
I’m losing the fight
I’m far from humble
I can’t help but think about
You to slip and tumble


The suffering I go through
Has broken me down
I must find refuge
Take off the thorny crown
You’ve taken my soul
But ill find a way
To take it all back
Somehow some day


She’s finally left you
Now is my chance
To win back this summer
To ask her to dance
We now are so happy
I worked oh so hard
She’s finally mine
And now I’m a bard

I’ve run out of time
And summer has too
I still follow her
She follows me too
I've found where I belong
So I continue
To live in sweet peace
Not to worry about you
