There is a song that is driving me crazy. I think it came out in the 70's, and I love the song, and I want to find the lyrics online and I can't. I don't even know the title, or who sings it. As a kid, it kind of reminded me of "Suicide Is Painless", but it's not the same song. (Maybe the same artist?) I used to think it was a breakup song, but as I grab the lyrics here and there, it seems it's about a young person contemplating suicide because of a lost love. I think the main lyrics are...
"Fool if you think it's over,
Cause you said goodbye,
Fool if you think it's over,
I'll tell you why,
Newborn eyes always cry with pain,
When they first look at the mornin' sun,
Fool if you think it's over,
It's just begun."


I really love this song. Please help. Thanks.

Fool if ya think i'm gonna know this! Wink

Chris Rea is who sang dat song- "Fool (if you think it's over)" back in the '70s. The album it comes from pretty much sucks but his best-of cd is pretty good. Remember "Let's Dance" from the late late '80s? That was him too.

i dug up lyrics for ya, tiki-

Dyin' flame, you're free again
Who could love, do that to you
All dressed in black, he won't be comin' back
Look, save your tears
Got years and years
The pains of seventeen's
Unreal they're only dreams
Save your cryin' for the day

Fool if you think it's over
'Cause you said goodbye
Fool if you think it's over
I'll tell you why
New born eyes always cry with pain
At the first look at the mornin' sun
Fool if you think it's over
It's just begun

Miss Teenage Dream, such a tragic scene
He knocked your crown and ran away
First wound of pride, and how you cried and cried
But save your tears, got years and years

Fool if you think it's over
'Cause you said goodbye
Fool if you think it's over
I'll tell you why...

(Fool if you think it's over)
(Fool if you think it's over)

I'll buy you first good wine
We'll have a real good time
Save your cryin' for the day
That may not come
But anyone who had to pay
Would laugh at you and say

Fool if you think it's over
'Cause you said goodbye
Fool if you think it's over
I'll tell you why
New born eyes always cry with pain
At the first

Thanks, xc. I love that song. But the only "Let's Dance" that comes to mind from the 80's is from the early 80's and from David Bowie.Smile

Glad to help!

"Let's Dance" was a mostly FM album rock hit. Rea's voice was pretty scratchy on this one, scratchy a la Robbie Robertson but more melodic. Musically it was in the Boz Scaggs school of blue eyed soul rock. Here be the lyrics-

When you sing of the joy only love can bring

Heaven knows it's in my heart and my soul.
Caught in a world full of tears
so many bad times and fears.
So while there's a chance and you're near -
Let's dance
let's dance

There's a world far away from the one we see

There's a dream I will never let go.
One thing is certainly true: This moment's for me and for you.
So while there's not a thing here we can do -
Let's dance
let's dance
let's dance
let's dance
