Kenny Rogers And Dottie West – Everytime Two Fools Collide Lyrics

You want things your way
And I want them mine
And now we don’t know
Just where to draw the line
How can love survive
If we keep choosing sides
And who picks up the pieces
Every time two fools collide

You lay the blame on me
And I put the blame on you
But why do we keep finding faults
In everything we do
And how long can we keep right and wrong
So cut and dried
And who picks up the pieces
Every time two fools collide

We can save our love
We still have the time
Oh, I know there must be a way
That we still haven’t tried
To keep our hearts from breaking
Every time two fools collide
To keep our hearts from breaking
Every time two fools collide
