Temper Trap, The - Fools Lyrics

They don't know
What they're on about
Those fools
Don't get my dreams

And I want it, I want it, I want it
And I want it, I want it, I want it
When you can't wait
To watch me fall

Singin' stories on a wrecking ball
Colliding fast
To bring you down

If you want it, you want it, you want it
If you want it, you want it, you want it
Things we build
To fall

And I want it, I want it, I want it
And I want it, I want it, I want it

Temper Trap, The Fools Comments
  1. Emilia Aparecida Dos Santos Nery

    E a musica mais linda que ja ouvi. Que legado. Gratidao!!!

  2. Ethan Bale

    Man this takes me back to 7th - 11th grade. The happiest years of my life and I didn't even realize it then

  3. Cheeky S.O.B

    1:46 is just amazing

  4. shane brennan

    What an eerie haunting song .. a masterpiece.. 🏆

  5. Nicolas Otamendi

    Sometimes things we build to fall💔💔😣

  6. Stuart Robertson

    Video has the same problem as a lot of lyric videos, they are coming up slightly too late to read and sing along to. Get the words on screen BEFORE they are sung. Thanks

  7. Lastri Gintings

    another amazing temper trap song for soul therapy

  8. Floyd Brennan

    I dedicated, and not in a good way, obviously, to the bullies who made fun of Lizzie Velasquez because of her appearance all those years in school. "Fools" pretty much describes them...

  9. ShinJitsu Shinobi

    You can't wait to watch me fall. 😈

  86. Marjolein de Groot

    @peuski281 better try amazon/bol.com

  87. themexica10

    Just Beautiful..

  88. ballcapmusicbox

    @creampuffs16 Although Im not a big fan of this song either, I must disagree only because there is not real instrumental melody for the majority of this song (the reason I dont like it) but instead it focuses almost entirely on the chord progression itself, leaving it with a one-dimensional feel. If not for the ending I would have given up on this song.

  89. Brandon Rich

    @ballcapmusicbox Doesn't take a genius to figure out that they wrote the instrumental melodies before the lyrical ones, cramming their lyrics to follow the instruments. Nothing against writing music before lyrics, or vice versa, but seriously, I could listen to this instrumentally and get the same monotonous, atmospheric vibe. If they wanted me to feel this way about the song, then congratulations, they wrote a fantastic song, otherwise... no.

  90. ballcapmusicbox

    @creampuffs16 explain.

  91. Brandon Rich

    a great example of what NOT to do when writing a song...
