Brooke Fraser - Who Are We Fooling Lyrics




So we're back here again
Tiptoeing round the edge of the end
Wondering who will be last to admit
That we're finally over

Turned twenty one on a day that we met
Terrible shoes, implausible dress
It's funny how sad the funny things get as you grow older

Better or worse
But what else can we do?
For better or worse
I am tethered to you
If it's not either of us
Tell me who are we fooling?

I learnt the art of biting my tongue
I tired of trying to guess what was wrong
Both agreed on where we should go
But not how to get there

We tried and tried to loosen the knots
Thinking once we're untangled we'll be better off
But it's these failures and faults that hold us together

Better or worse
But what else can we do?
And better or worse
I am tethered to you
If it's not either of us
Tell me who are we fooling?

This beautiful tangle that's bruising us blue
It's a beautiful knot that we just can't undo
Together we're one but apart tell me
Who are we fooling?

Cause real love
Is hard love
It's all we have
It's a break-neck
Train wreck
It's all we have

So we're back here again
Turning away from the edge of the end
Arm in arm

Better or worse
But what else can we do?
And better or worse
I am tethered to you
If it's not either of us
Tell me who are we fooling?

This beautiful tangle that's bruising us blue
It's a beautiful knot we just can't undo
If it's not either of us, tell me who are we fooling?

Together we're one, but apart tell me
Who are we fooling?

Brooke Fraser Who Are We Fooling Comments
  1. God bless you God bless you

    2019, I still listen Sigo Escuchando las maravillas de brooke Fraser, please brooke come to Uruguay! I love you

  2. Jackso Ventura

    You know, i don't see GOD in your songs , may he is bacause you're looking please men and not GOD. I've watched many of your songs and i really loved them but now you leave GOD aside brooke fraser.:(

    Joshua R. Deal

    She writes many songs to the Lord. "What A Beautiful Name", "Who You Say I Am", and "New Wine" are all newer beautiful songs of worship. I would encourage you to look for God in things that you know reveal his heart or nature, according to His word. The entire message and theme of this song is entirely godly and a reflection of His heart for marriage. Just remember that we serve a God who is sympathetic to our afflictions and hurts and who can enter into them with us. He longs for us to be honest and open with our feelings and and to freely put our hearts on display, even during difficult seasons. Songs like this can be used to express relatable feelings to the listener who might be going through a similar situation and the Lord can use songs like this to minister to them. Get creative with the way you see God in things, and He will reveal Himself in surprising ways.

  3. Josh

    Wooooowwww before a break up or a divorce I would challenge anybody who truly loves a person no matter the struggle no matter the circumstances of the past or present to listen to this song...LOVING FIERCELY, BOLDLY,AND GODLY....#UNCONDITIONALLY. So powerful!!

  16. Chumisa Bam

    i love this song_ i can appreciate how entangling love is_its never easy, its hard work but every thing worth having is.

  17. Michael Jenkins

    I believe it is about a relationship that is tearing apart. They keep trying to keep the spark alive but nothing seems to be working. Try and try to make things worst but they are only fooling themselves. Agreed a beautiful song.

  18. Jocelyne Sade

    What does.... who are we fooling..... mean? And what's good about staying in a relationship where your tangles are endlessly bruising you blue? and who wants just failures and faults to hold you together? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. The song is downright beautiful, the piano, the voices, but the words! I don't know..... and also, why do singers today feel the need to drop the last letters of the words they sing? Is there some advantage? I believe every word needs to be articulated

  19. Zachariah J

    Beautiful duet

  20. Singa2570

    3.57-3.58 - one of the most beautiful moments in contemporary music for me.... Well done Brooke I love you and am thankful to God that He made you, and sustains you in this life in order for you to be able to bless others and bring them closer to Him... because that's what you do for me. What an incredible ministry. God bless you heaps!! :-)

  21. Gabriel Mitchell

  25. Ashley Derailed

    This Song Was Litterally The Death Of Me. I Know The Feeling Of Asking Yourself Who Are We Fooling And I Hate It So Much. Thats How My Last Relationship Ended...Asking Who Are We Fooling. It Was Long Distance And I Knew It Wouldnt Last Forever But It Ended Up With This Song Becoming The End Of Us. This Song Hits So Close And Makes Me Break At The Seams...Brooke Fraser Your Songs Are My Way Of Life. If You Dont Like This Song Then Go Away!
