WORDS

FOOLISH ANYWAY
The way you said goodbye to me just keeps on coming back. 
It’s like a movie I hate but it never fades to black. 
And the credits never roll, and it’s got a filthy plot. 
And I still peek through my fingers at the really nasty shots. 

I’d wake up screaming. But this ain’t no dream. 
And I can hear your voice saying to me, baby… 

I’d be a fool if I don’t leave you. 
What a lonely thing to say. 
I’d be a fool if I don’t leave you. 
Girl, you’re foolish anyway. 

And you believe anything your girlfriends say. 
And even if I wasn’t lying you’d hate me anyway. 
I think you need a couple of courses in tough talk. 
Maybe to the untrained tongue, you’re from a school of hard knocks. 

I’d wake up laughing. But this ain’t no fun. 
And I can hear your voice saying to me, baby… 

I’d be a fool if I don’t leave you. 
What a lovely thing to say. 
I’d be a fool if I don’t leave you. 
Girl, you’re foolish anyway. 

Used to be the silent treatment. Used to be a gap before. 
I always want to say something, but I’m afraid that I’m a bore. 
Well you can glare right at me till you’re black and blue in your face. 
But I can hear your voice saying to me, baby… 

I’d be a fool if I don’t leave you. 
What a lovely thing to say. 
I’d be a fool if I don’t leave you. 
Girl, you’re foolish anyway. 

I’d be a fool if I don’t leave you. 
What a lovely thing to say. 
I’d be a fool if I don’t leave you. 
Girl, you’re foolish anyway.
