The subject of this next song
Well, I guess it's been around forever
It deals with someone that's so much in love
He's blind to the truth
I think Merle wrote a classic line in this one
"Being a fool is one thing
But not knowing you're a fool is another thing"

Today a friend got through to me
I've been blind I couldn't see
'Cause my love was always standing in the way
Well I've been crazy, I've been blown
My good friends, they knew all along
Yesterday's news just hit home today

Well I've tried
Lord, and I've tried to stay on top of things
Never dreaming such a storm was on it's way
When you owned up to all those lies
I was the only one there that was surprised
Yesterday's news just hit home today

Well I guess the shock of learning that you've been a fool
Allows paranoia and insecurities to creep in
And I'll tell you it underminded our love honey
I thought would never end
You know being a fool is one thing
But not knowing you're a fool, honey, that's another thing
Yesterday's news just hit home today

Well I've tried and I've tried to stay on top of things
Never dreaming such a storm was on it's way
But when you owned up to all those lies
Honey, I was the only fool there that was surprised
Yesterday's news just hit home today
