lyrics

I hope you shine bright as a star
Don’t listen to them say you wont go far
And I hope you’ll grow out of the mould
And stray a little further from the fold

They’ll say it is all a waste of time
They’ll try to cut you down to size
Jealous of love you have to share, and they can’t compare
We’ve got the time

Who wants to be a fool in love like me?
Who wants to live a life in fantasy?
Well we’ve got love enough to share
We’ve got time not to care
So maybe we’ll fall and shed a tear
Get hurt by something cruel
I’m young and got the right to be a fool

I hope you shine bright as a star
Don’t let them try to tell you who you are
And I hope you’ll stay over the moon
When they tell you that your heart has loved to soon

They’ll say it is all a waste of time
They try to cut you down to size
Jealous of love you have to share, and they can’t compare
They don’t think its fare
We’ve got the time

Who wants to be a fool in love like me?
Who wants to live a life in fantasy?
Well we’ve got love enough to share
We’ve got time not to care
So maybe we’ll fall and shed a tear
Get hurt by something cruel
I’m young and got the right to be a fool
So maybe we’ll fall and shed a tear
Get hurt by something cruel
I’m young and got the right to be a fool
To be a fool
To be a fool
