Jewel – Foolish Games


Somebody more like myself.
You stood in my doorway, with nothing to say
Things that knew what an honest dollar did mean
[Pre-Chorus 2]
Always felt I was outside looking in on you.
Dark eyes and careless hair,
Things that were daring, things that were clean
You were fashionably sensitive
Besides some comment on the weather.
You’re always crazy like that.
Stood in the rain,
You’d teach me of honest things
Somewhere along the line I must’ve gone off track with you
These foolish games are tearing me apart,
In case you failed to see,
[Pre-Chorus 1]
You’re always the mysterious one with
You’re breaking my heart.

And I watched from my window,
You took your coat off and stood in the rain,

Well, excuse me, guess I’ve mistaken you for somebody else,
As I clumsily strummed my guitar.
This is me down on my knees, and…
Your philosophies on art, Baroque moved you.
Smoking your cigarettes and talking over coffee.
You’re always crazy like that.
[Chorus]
Somebody who gave a damn,
This is my heart bleeding before you,
You’re always brilliant in the morning,
Well in case you failed to notice,
You took your coat off,

So I hid my soiled hands behind my back
You loved Mozart and you’d speak of your loved ones

[Chorus]
But too cool to care.

And your thoughtless words are breaking my heart.
