When I met you, oh
You know at first you had me so confused
I used to lay awake at night
Just copin' with the feelings I so long refused

Well, I surrendered my love
I saw you turn your heart stone-cold to ice, darlin'
I put my heart on the line for you
Oh, I did, I put my heart on the line, yeah
First you take me to the highest ground
Then you keep me hanging like some foolish clown

It's such a fools' game, yeah
It's such a fools' game
I keep playing such a fools' game, yeah (forever)
I keep on playin', keep on playin' this fools' game
Yeah, this fools' game

I can't take another sleepless night
It's time to light the fire down inside of you
I don't mind: I have the sun on my back

To get a feeling that you never knew
You never knew
Got the secret in the palm of your hands
Will you keep it, woman?
Will you break this man?

It's such a fools' game, yeah
It's such a fools' game
I keep playing such a fools' game, yeah (forever)
I keep on playin', keep on playin' this fools' game
Yeah, this fools' game

Girl, I know you're playin' full time
But it may be too late when you make up your mind

You keep me in this fools' game
Forever in your fools' game
You got me caught up in this fools' game
Such a fools' game, oh no, a fools' game
How long will you keep me in this fools' game?
