Foolish Games - Jewel

Refer to If Your Heart Surrenders, Part XIV - Too Far

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

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, 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
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

And these foolish games are 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 were always crazy like that
