Jewel - Foolish Games

You took your coat off and stood in the rain

You're always crazy like that

And I watched from my window

Always felt I was outside looking in on you

You're always the mysterious one with

Dark eyes and careless hair

You were fashionably sensitive

But too cool to care

You stood in my doorway, with nothing to say

Besides some comment on the weather

 

Well in case you failed to notice

In case you failed to see

This is my heart bleeding before you

This is me down on my knees, and

 

These foolish games are tearing me apart

And your thoughtless words are breaking my heart

You're breaking my heart

 

You're always brilliant in the morning

Smoking your cigarettes and talking over coffee

Your philosophies on art, Baroque moved you

You loved Mozart; and you'd speak of your loved ones

As I clumsily strummed my guitar

 

You'd teach me of honest things

Things that were daring, things that were clean

Things that knew what an honest dollar did mean

I hid my soiled hands behind my back

Somewhere along the line, I must have gone

Off track with you

 

Excuse me, think I've mistaken you for somebody else

Somebody who gave a damn

Somebody more like myself

 

And these foolish games are tearing me

You're tearing me

You're tearing me apart

And your thoughtless words are breaking my heart

You're breaking my heart

 

You took your coat off

Stood in the rain

You're always crazy like that
