LYRICS

Verse 1:
spent your life
wasting time
believing lies they told you
in the hardest times
you wondered why
all those dreams kept falling through

Chorus:
if you're hoping hard
or waiting for
someone who can tell you what you're worth
ohhh my love
you should know by now
in this big old world of faces you're still standing out
ohhh my love
you should know by now
while they're digging for fool's gold
you're the realest thing around.

Verse 2:
after all this time
you've run and hide
from who it is you're supposed to be
but the thinnest lines
are between truth and lies
and it's never too late to see

Chorus:
that you're beautiful the way you are
and I'll tell you what you're worth
ohhh my love
you should know by now
in this big old world of faces you're still standing out
ohhh my love
you should know by now
while they're digging for fool's gold
you're the realest thing around.


Bridge:
there's a story in your scars
and a lifetime in your skin
but you're perfect in your imperfection


Chorus:
so if you're hoping hard
or waiting for
someone who can tell you what you're worth
ohhh my love
you should know by now
in this big old world of faces you're still standing out
ohhh my love
you should know by now
while they're digging for fool's gold
you're the realest thing around.
yeah they're digging for fool's gold
but you're the realest thing around.
