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
