Foolish Games Lyrics

You took your coat off and 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...

    Clearly the song is about someone -a male- in a woman's life who is everything to her; it could be a lover or in my case, my father, and then her seeing that he is not what she thought he was. IN my case I idolized my father only to find out he was a coward and a hypocrite. It is agonizing to find out that someone you love particularly a male hero is a coward or fraud or hypocrite. And that person betraying you is what breaks your heart. So the song is pretty literal but it is open to interpretation whom it is about.
