“Everybody Plays the Fool”, The Main Ingredient

Everybody Plays the Fool

Truer words were never spoken.


Everybody plays the fool

There’s no exception to the rule


This is the kind of song that has such simple and universal lyrics that we wonder why we didn’t write it ourselves.  It’s a beautiful song in every way, from the perfect words to the harmonious music and the gorgeous singing.  Flawless.

Falling in love is such an easy thing to do

And there’s no guarantee that the one you love

Is gonna love you


Sigh.  Yes, it’s not fun to love somebody who doesn’t love you back, especially if you thought they had the same feelings.  When my heart gets broken I usually vow to never let myself fall in love again; it’s far too painful to allow that sort of mess to happen again.  And sometimes I regret ever having fallen in love with that person.  Maybe if we had never met we both would have been better off.  But is that always the case?  Can’t we find some good in a relationship, even if it ends painfully?


Yes, I know we can, but it’s natural to build a wall to protect our heart.  How much heartache can we handle?  We are more resilient than we think.    


Love makes fools of us all.
