Cass McCombs Sooner Cheat Death Than Fool Love Lyrics

sponsored links

[Verse 1]
I tried my hand at poker
That old, godless game
I was dealt five aces
I swear on Peter’s name

[Hook]
Sooner cheat death than fool love
Sooner cheat death than fool love

[Bridge]
Love is not a tower, as the poets say
Even the loftiest prison can be escaped
I wish I never met you, of that I’m sure
I ain't any better off than I was before

[Verse 2]
I’ll sooner reach Taenarum
And into the lower world
Steal the Helm of Darkness
Than love another girl

[Hook]

[Bridge 2]
Love is not a chemical, nor molecular clone
I can’t remember the last time I felt so alone
I’m sick as a dog, still my Love rings true
I ain't any better off than I was with you

[Verse 3]
Cheat on Death and taxes
Cheat the money from wealth
But if you try to fool Love
You’ll only fool yourself

[Hook]
