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

@Alexandria Elizabeth wc.walker@yahoo.com And please remember Alexandria that you get to set any conditions that you feel necessary in communicating with me. You're in control!

Bill Walker email ?

Bill Walker

@Alexandria Elizabeth I wanted to ask you the same thing? I'm a bit energy sensitive, so I do feel at least some of your dark emotions, and it worries me a little bit. I know that I said that there isn't much I can probably say that will help, but I will always care and am willing to listen if you need an unbiased opinion? That's of course up to you. If I give you a email address or my FB link would you at all be interested? And I'm fine, just bored with all of this virus shut down going on. Hopefully the virus will soon become a thing of the past. Thanks for asking!

Alexandria Elizabeth

@Bill Walker how are you doing

Bill Walker

@Alexandria Elizabeth Probably not a lot I can do or say to help, but if there is let me know! Time and spirit will heal you. Because of the nature of this song I'm assuming this is relationship related. Maybe this is the universes way of saying that it's just time to move on?

Grew up with my mother playing Jewel, this song being a favorite by her. So soft and melodic, yet powerful all at once.
