Foolish Games

Jewel

Album: Pieces of You

You took your coat off, and stood in the rain.
You were always crazy like that.
And I watched from my window,
Always felt I was outside looking in on you.

You were 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 were 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 teach me of honest things,
Things that are daring, things that are 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 of 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 and stood in the rain;
You were always crazy like that.
