Foolish Games
Jewel Lyrics


You took your coat off, 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 were 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 have 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
You're tearing me, you're tearing me apart
And your thoughtless words are breaking my heart
You're breaking my heart

And you took your coat off, stood in the rain
You're always crazy like that

Lyrics

You took your coat off
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
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'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 have 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
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

Greek lyrics by alefellyhey

Έβγαλες το παλτό σου, κάθισες στη βροχή
είσαι πάντα τόσο τρελός
και σε έβλεπα από το παράθυρο μου
πάντα ένιωθα πως ήμουν έξω και σε κοιτούσα
Είσαι πάντα αυτός ο μυστηριώδης τύπος
με σκούρα μάτια και απρόσεκτα μαλλιά
Ήσουν ευαισθητοποιημένος με τη μόδα
αλλά πολύ cool για να σε νοιάζει
Στάθηκες στην πόρτα μου χωρίς να έχεις κάτι να πεις
πέρα από κάποια σχόλια για τον καιρό
Λοιπόν σε περίπτωση που δεν το πρόσεξες
σε περίπτωση που δεν το είδες
αυτή είναι η καρδιά μου αιμορραγεί για σένα
αυτή είμαι εγώ πεσμένη στα γόνατα μου
Και αυτά τα ανόητα παιχνίδια με συντρίβουν
και τα απερίσκεπτα λόγια σου ραγίζουν την καρδιά μου
ραγίζεις την καρδιά μου
Είσαι πάντα λαμπερός το πρωί
καπνίζοντας τα τσιγάρα σου και πίνοντας τον καφέ σου, μιλώντας για
τις φιλοσοφίες σου στην τέχνη, η Baroque σε συγκινούσε
αγαπούσες τον Mozart και μιλούσες για τους αγαπημένους σου
ενώ εγώ έπαιζα αδέξια την κιθάρα μου.
Σύγγνωμη, νόμιζω σε πέρασα για κάποιον άλλο,
κάποιον που νοιαζόταν,
κάποιον που ήταν περισσότερο σαν εμένα
Και αυτά τα ανόητα παιχνίδια με συντρίβουν
και τα απερίσκεπτα λόγια σου ραγίζουν την καρδιά μου
ραγίζεις την καρδιά μου
Έβγαλες το παλτό σου, στάθηκες στη βροχή
είσαι πάντα τόσο τρελός

I'm a 41 year old Metal Head and I absolutely love Jewel. I had a huge crush on her as a kid. As an adult, I can still go back to these songs and appreciate them, probably even more than I did as a kid.

Karl Fodor

I was silly infatuated with Jewel as a teenage boy. Now, soon to be 40 and listening to her music again, it seems very little has changed. Her music and voice is even better now that understand she's a very admirable and inspiring person. But still, what truly gets me is that voice which is both angelic and can also be so raw as to pierce your heart and jerk your spine.

Jewel and Dolores O'riordan are my favorite female singers of all time.

@Boogy Man BOTH BEAUTIFUL & HAUNTING SINGERS! HAD MANY GIRLFRIENDS LIIVED & DIED BY THEIR MUSIC & WHEN I FUCKED UP WHICH WAS OFTEN I'D BE SAT DOWN LISTEN TO A SONG TO TELL ME WHAT THEY WANTED ME KNOW!! I'M HAUNTED BY THOSE SONGS - MEMORIES IN MY OLD AGE.

Boogy Man

Tony Saunders
