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’re 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, guess I’ve mistaken you for somebody else
Somebody who gave a damn
Somebody more like myself

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


  1. Loved this song but unfortunately it brings back bad memories of my spouse who played foolish games on me ….took my 1st daughter away from me put us through a messy separation and financial disarray and my first encounter of suicidal tendencies….. because of her selfishness for lust of mutiple sex partners and greed….destroyed our young daughter's chance of a family upbringing environment and in the end being raised by me ….a single father…….but it was a beautiful song and always brings tears when i hear it ….to this day

  2. So many tears to this. It will stay in my soul on the other side.

  3. Who’s here because you knew in .2 seconds the Heart was Jewel on the masked singer!?

  4. This song says alot…. how someone can get caught up in someone and care so much and them not care and tear someones world completely apart… so much that you feel your world will never be the same and you will never get over it…. feel so lost anymore… the hardest thing ive ever had to deal with… words cut so deep anymore…. and my heart is laid wide open,

    Só o Amor Constrói 🇧🇷

  7. No more games…no more words🦉🌠

  8. Damn, I was 16 when this came out. Life certainly flies by fast.

  9. This is my favorite song Jewel sings, so heart breaking and beautiful.

  12. I just got so sad listening…I was just a young teenager when this album came out. 😢 take me back!

  13. listening in michigan… timeless tune! great voice! *love it even 1st time i ever heard it!!!

  14. Her and I are both enneagram 4’s and this makes me less ashamed of that. Truity has a free quiz. Don’t pay 20$ but take quiz then google the result your dominate number is. I was horrified to find out I’m a 4 but after seeing jewel was and revisiting I’m comforted in my deep differences

  15. Our government is playing foolish games tearing our country apart. Making people who were once friends hate each other. So sad. And for what???

  16. 2021 I feel so close to her I too was married to a bullrider

  17. Paulina Kowalska, pamiętasz jak miałyśmy po 18 lat i słuchałyśmy tego w domu Twojego taty, koło stajni w K. 🙂 ? Ukradkiem paliłyśmy papierosy, jeździłyśmy konno, łaziłyśmy po łąkach, zwierzałyśmy się sobie. Życie było takie fajne i proste 🙂 Daj znać czy żyjesz !

  18. when I was a teenager I sang this song happily in front of the mirror mimicking Jewel. . .but now Im mid 30’s it hits different, I feel the emotions and sadness and it helped me to cry and let out my true feelings that I hide,of what happened in my last relationship.😥😭thankful to process this emotions with this song.

  19. She went to Interlochen Arts Academy, next door to Traverse City, where I lived from 13 till 30, I think I met her

  20. Always love first but this cheating needs to stop!

  21. Fool are 🎵🎶 thin work I'd be sheto be vol lazy she down s hurt 🤕 we own ded family heaven will. Don't hear Chang Kim and the Michelle Korn kim browse an d then

  22. Avoid this song if there's someone who has left an indelible mark on your life and is no longer on this earth. Tears..

  23. Wow. Cool….thats a great tune…what a way to get a message across to sombody

  24. Splendid, splendid..from "Alaska the Last Frontier" to you now…we all should bow to you….from ballads to dance beats….you knock it out of the park…wholesome and just simple self, let's us all know we can, should be, what you've been fighting for and accomplished…

  25. This is one of your best songs. Beautiful
