Foolish, Heart Am I
Yes, I played the game,
Yet, I did not hide my heart.
I gave it away to others,
I gave it and in return they gave me back nothing.
Yet I still carry my heart and leave it in their hands.
To do what they wish.
I am a foolish heart,
I am.
Peace is not my friend,
So I cry,
In my deepest anguish,
I feel myself alone,
Still, I give and give and give,
What a lost fool am I.
