This Foolish Heart

(Joe Whyte)
Music and Lyrics by Joe Whyte ©Matawan Music (SESAC)
Let’s mess around like when we were fifteen
Steal a couple smokes and find a place to hide
Way before all these dark clouds swallowed me
Before every useless tear that I made you cry

But this foolish heart
Can’t take a hint and keeps me coming round your door
Yeah this foolish heart
Wrote all the letters I know you’re trying to ignore


What’s it gonna take for you to forgive me?
Yeah I messed up, but I did my time
But from the look of those scars and the gun you’re waving
One of us won’t be leaving here alive

But this foolish heart
Can’t take a hint and keeps me coming round your door
Yeah this foolish heart
Made you call the cops and now I’m bleeding on your floor


All I ever did was hope you’d come around and see me
And ask me how the hell I was, for once
But all you ever did was run, run across the country
To forget who I had I had become, and what I’d done

But this foolish heart
Can’t take a hint and keeps me coming round your door
Yeah this foolish heart
Made you call the cops and left me bleeding on your floor
