What A Fool Believes (1979) by Doobie Brothers – artists, lyrics, video, Wiki-1, Wiki-2

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

But what a fool believes he sees…
