You're Only Foolin’ Yourself

You think, you’ve got it bad, you think you’re so misunderstood
and everybody treats you like you’re no damn good

well you can save your explanations your promises and lies
you can’t hide what you’re sayin with your eyes

CHO-Everyone who knows you, knows you oh so well,
You’re only foolin’ yourself

You only fool yourself, when you lie to other people
when what you say is true, you want them to believe in you

CHO-Everyone who knows you, knows you oh so well,
You’re only foolin’ yourself

You’ve told so many stories, so many times before
nobody who knows you well believes you anymore

You’ve hurt a lot of people sayin things that weren’t true
Nobody wants to believe they were deceived by you

CHO-Everyone who knows you, knows you oh so well,
You’re only foolin’ yourself

You only fool yourself, fool yourself, You’re only foolin’ yourself
You only fool yourself, fool yourself, You’re only foolin’ yourself
