"Foolish Games" lyrics

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've gone off track with you

Excuse me
Guess I've mistaken you for
Somebody else
Somebody who gave a damn
Somebody more like myself

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
