Patty Loveless The Richest Fool Alive Lyrics

There's just no way of goin' back
To change what's come and gone
But if I could go back in time
I'd undo what you've done
I wouldn't look into your eyes
And go completely blind
Or listen to your pretty words
And leave my heart behind

If heartaches were treasure
And pain could be sold
If dreams were made of silver
And promises of gold
If teardrops were diamonds
Measured in lies
I'd have a broken heart worth millions
And be the richest fool alive

Next time I'd listen to my friends
Take their advice to heart
And avoid all of this misery
I could of ended from the start
But fools in love don't listen
They don't know right from wrong
The see just what they want to see
And miss it when it's gone

If heartaches were treasure
And pain could be sold
If dreams were made of silver
And promises of gold
I teardrops were diamonds
Measured in lies
I'd have a broken heart worth millions
And be the richest fool alive

I'd have a broken heart worth millions
And be the richest fool alive
