I need a love that grows
I don't want it unless I know
With each passing hour
Someone somehow
Will be there
Ready to share.

I need a love that's strong
I'm so tired of being alone
But will my lonely heart
Play the part
Of the fool again
Before I begin

Foolish heart
Hear me callin'
Stop before
You start fallin'
Foolish heart
Heed my warnin'
You've been wrong before
Don't be wrong anymore

Feelin' that feelin' again
I'm playin' a game I can't win
Love's knockin' on the door
Of my heart once more
Think I'll let her in
Before I begin

Foolish Heart
Hear me callin'
Stop before
You start fallin'
Foolish heart
Heed my warnin'
You've been wrong before
Don't be wrong anymore
Foolish heart

Foolish, foolish heart
You've been wrong before

(keyboard solo)

Foolish heart
Hear me callin'
Stop before
You start fallin'
Foolish heart
Heed my warnin'
You've been wrong before
Don't be wrong anymore
Foolish heart

Oh foolish, foolish heart
You've been wrong before

Foolish, foolish heart
Foolish heart

    Been hurt before, wants to love again, but holds back because doesn't want to get hurt again. Trying to talk himself out of falling in love but doesn't want to be lonely.. On the fence.

    I think it is "ones self" having a "heart to heart" and telling the heart, which is a "repeat offender" at getting broken, to watch out/pay attention... Don't get involved in yet another bad relationship that ends with heart ache/tears. "you've been wrong before, don't be wrong anymore! "

    Sounds like when the mind tells your heart to move on and reach for true love again... While at the same time the heart still feels the loss of the love you thought would last forever. I do believe that for many of us, true, undying love comes but once in a lifetime, Sometimes we miss that chance for whatever reason, only to wake up later in life feeling the magnitude of that loss. That's when we realize how that same love lived on within us without our knowing, carrying us through life's lonely times and strengthened us beyond understanding. Many choose to remain comfortable with the idea of true love, rather that risk another loss.
