"Foolish Games" by Jewel


You took your coat off and stood in the rain
You were always crazy like that
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 to cool to care
Then 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
These foolish games are tearing me apart
Your thoughtless words are breaking my heart
You're breaking my heart
you were always brilliant in the morning
smoking your cigarettes, talking over coffee
Your philosophies on art, Baroque moved you,
you loved Mozart and you'd speak of your loved ones
As I clumisly 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
So I hid my soiled hands behind my back
Somewhere along the line I must've gone off track with you
Excuse me, I think i've mistaken you for somebody else
Somebody who gave a damn
Somebody more like myself
these foolish games are tearing me apart
Your thoughtless words are breaking my heart
Your breaking my heart
You took your coat off and stood in the rain
You were always crazy like that
