FOOLISH GAMES
Melissa Etheridge


You took your coat off and stood in the rain,
You were always crazy like that
And 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

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 you cigarettes, talking over coffee
Your philosophies on are, Baroque moved you,
You loved Mozart and you'd speak of you loved ones
As I clumsily strummed my guitar

Well 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, tearing me,
Your tearing me apart, breaking my heart
Your thoughtless words are breaking my heart
You're breaking my heart
You took your coat off and stood in the rain
You were always crazy like that
