Foolish Games



by: Jewel
from the album: "Pieces Of You"

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 too 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
You thoughtless words 
are breaking my heart
You're breaking my heart

You were always brilliant  
in the morning
Smoking your cigarettes, 
talking over coffee
You 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
So I hid my soiled hands  
behind my back
Somewhere along the line 
I must've gone off track with you
Excuse me, think I've mistaken 
you for somebody else
Somebody who gave a damn,
Somebody more like myself

These foolish games 
are tearing me apart
You thoughtless words 
are breaking my heart
You're breaking my heart

You took off your coat 
and stood in the rain
you were always like that
