​Foolish Games

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album Bookbinder's Kid (1988).

Passion spent on those wasted years
Borrowed time that's paid back in tears
I'm leaving today
'Cause it's you who should pay
Pay for all my loving, baby

You knew my secrets all the way
I wish we'd never talked that day
'Cause you lit the flame
So you are to blame
Now the fire's dyin', baby

You needed my shoulder to cry on
And you know I'm the one you relied on
So start facing the facts
I ain't coming back

Stop playing those foolish games
'Cause I'm stronger now
Gonna make it on my own
Stop playing those foolish games
It's not hard to see
That you're cheating on me

Take a page from this open book
Take a glance, take a second look
Is it hard to believe this story you read
Well it shouldn't be
You wrote it, baby

You needed my shoulder to cry on
And you know I'm the one you relied on
So start facing the facts
I ain't coming back

Stop playing those foolish games
'Cause I'm stronger now
Gonna make it on my own
Stop playing those foolish games
It's not hard to see
That you're cheating on me

Stop playing those foolish games
'Cause I'm stronger now
Gonna make it on my own
Stop playing those foolish games
'Cause I'm stronger now
Gonna make it on my own

Stop playing those foolish games
'Cause I'm stronger
Gonna make it on my own
