Foolish Heart
Steve Perry Lyrics


I need a love that grows
I don't want it unless I know
With each passin' hour
Someone, somehow
Will be there, ready to share

I need a love that's strong
I'm so tired of being alone
But will my lonely heart
Play the part
Of the fool again, before I begin

Foolish heart, hear me calling
Stop before you start falling
Foolish heart, heed my warning
You've been wrong before
Don't be wrong anymore

Feelin' that feelin' again
Playin' a game I can't win
Love's knockin' on the door
Of my heart once more
Think I'll let her in
Before I begin

Foolish heart, hear me calling
Stop before, you start falling
Foolish heart, heed my warning
You've been wrong before
Don't be wrong anymore
Foolish heart
Foolish, foolish heart
You've been wrong before

Foolish heart, hear me calling
Stop before you start falling
Foolish heart, heed my warning
You've been wrong before
Don't be wrong anymore
Foolish heart

Oh foolish foolish heart
You've been wrong before

Foolish foolish heart
Foolish heart

Steve Perry got bored when journey was at the top.
And got power-hungry raised on radio the album was without bandmember and band founder Ross Valory
(replaced by Randy Jackson)

Drummers were replaced also along the way.


Then Steve Perry needed a hip replacement and he refused to do it before the band started touring. And he held the band up canceling shows. the band members finally decided to outvote him and hire Arnold PINADA to replace Steve Perry. After all of this came to pass
Then Steve Decided he was going to do the surgery after holding the band up. Steve Perry has an ego problem this is what caused the band to split up. There was a whole documentary on this a while back also on TV. Steve Perry the vocalist is one of the greatest singers ever. Steve Perry the Man with the biggest ego in the room
Unfortunately messed it up for the rest of us who love journey

@Elena Of Avalor & Moana Disney Princess 2 Oh, sh*t. Come on. Aynsley was a good drummer for 1978. Steve Smith blew him away a long time ago. Especially since he started training with jazz guy Freddie Gruber. THEN Rush's Neil Peart saw him and went to that guy, too.

YES, singers need to control the band.

I've played drums. Trust me, they don't NEED to know what's going on. When I've been asked to play, they don't even tell me what song and I still manage. You do that by listening.

Drummers also rarely write and lyrics or songs...

The singer is the most fragile member of the band, also. Drumners can play completely wasted (Bonham and Moonie). Can't do that as the singer.

I'll venture to say Schon is also an egotist. Most guitar players are.

If not for the Steves, nobody would know who Journey even is. The jazz stuff was cool, about 1 in 7 tracks were great (cookie duster, nickle and dime. Of a lifetime, kouhtek) but not radio friendly, at all, most of the time.

Most drummers ONLY know drums, as well.

Again, music major here :) jmo.

I need a love that's strong
I'm so tired of being alone

Foolish heart, hear me calling
Stop before you start falling
Foolish heart, heed my warning

Don't be wrong anymore

Feelin' that feelin' again

Foolish heart, hear me calling
Stop before, you start falling
Foolish heart, heed my warning
You've been wrong before

Foolish heart
Foolish, foolish heart
You've been wrong before

Foolish heart, hear me calling
Stop before you start falling
Foolish heart, heed my warning
You've been wrong before
Don't be wrong anymore
Foolish heart

Oh foolish foolish heart
You've been wrong before

Foolish foolish heart

I need a love that grows,
I dont want it unless I know,
with every passing hour, someone, somehow,
will be there, ready to share.
I need a love that's strong,
I'm so tired of being alone,,
but will my lonely heart,
play the part of the fool again, before I begin, foolish heart he'll be calling stop before you'll start falling, foolish heart, heed my warning, you've been wrong before, dont be wrong anymore.

Feeling not feeling again
I'm playing a game I cant win
Love's knocking on the door, and my heart wants more,
think I'll let her in, before I begin, foolish heart he'll be calling stop before you'll start falling, foolish heart, heed my warning, you've been wrong before, dont be wrong anymore.

@StarChief_300zx Please note, however, the 70s were more like Saturday Night Fever than the 80s.

There was a big anti-disco thing due to blatantly homophobia. You were at serious risk of being badly injured for being gay then. And it's unlikely anyone would do anything to help, even the cops.

The same thing if you experienced abuse at home as a kid or from a partner. Which is the same now, actually. You xan look up AJ Freund, at what disgusting examples his parents were. They killed him, hid the body in a plastic tote for 3 days, and dumped him. That was recently. Thank you for the drugs...but drugs don't make you vermin. People that get sober are generally still vermin.

It wasn't exactly utopia. Bullying was often serious, if not fatal. 1980 was much like the Blues Brothers. The mall they drove thru, the Dixie Square, however, was closed 2 years by the movie. It was in a sh*thole area and the crime started pretty much right away when they opened in the late 60s. Mall owners made about 15 mil (in back-then money) a year the 1st 2 or 3 years, and then let it go to seed. Rape AND murder were committed ON the property.

Open barely 15 years, left to drug addicts and wild animals for another 30. John Landis drive the car all through a wing of the place (Burt's Shoes was an original sign) and then cut out without paying the 90k he was supposed to pay Harvey, IL for damages. They were still using part of the mall and the extensive damage ruined that.

Considering Landis was directly responsible for 3 deaths during the filming of Twilight Zone movie (he directed a helicopter to fly too close to the ground and fireworks caused it to crash and decapitate actor Vic Morrow and another kid, as well as crush another child he was carrying)...I can honestly buy the BB story. There's video online at YT and it's real.

In 1974, Christine Chubbuck was a newscaster, the first to kill herself on live TV. There was a tape she requested be made and it's in a private vault. There is no copy of it online but fakes. 2 movies were filmed about it.

Horrifically, there wasn't a live broadcast delay back then, but I'm certain it's why there is now (it's like 10 seconds or so).

Another huge event in the 1970s was Jim Jones, who conned a LOT of people, including the Carter family. He did a lot of good. The idea of a suicide net for the Golden Gate was his idea. He has a lot of great ideas and implemented several of them. But some very nasty drugs caused a mental break, in addition to being a megalomaniacal sociopath to start with by all accounts...and he conned several people to run off to Guyana. There, he forced/conned them to drink cyanide spiked Flavor Aid (thus the saying about drinking the Kool Aid). An extremely nasty way to die. He told mothers to kill their babies first, and after that, it was easy to get them to do it themselves.

He killed over 900 people that way. The most horrific thing I've ever heard was their last few hours...there is tape and it's real. It actually sounds satanic. One of the last songs their band played was "Way of the World" by Earth Wind and Fire.

There were points back then when you couldn't get gas. People got upset at the news, and there were huge lines. It depended on your ending number on your license plate, I think it was. Odds got one day, evens, another.

Some movies/shows that fit:

Bob Newhart show
All in the Family.
Breakfast Club
16 Candles
Fast Times at Ridgemont High
Blues Brothers
It Follows has a soundtrack very 80s.
So does Sing Street.

Trading Places is very much how being a trader was back then.

The 1980s were just as greedy/sad in many ways...it isn't known as the Me generation for nothing.

Tho I think they're going to new depths to divide people on purpose now. Everyone is only out for themselves. Killed a million people so far.
