Back when we were lovers, between all of the others,  
And the time was good and fun  
'Cause everybody had someone,  
We fit so well and often, full and free.  
I loved the feeling that we had  
But I went crazy, I went absolutely mad  
For that gypsy wench, who took me off,  
Unfolding you from me.  
  
 Well, that was very foolish of me  
 And I can't help but believe  
 Somehow you would still have loved me  
 Had I not been such a fool to leave.  
  
Well, I am foolish in the ways an unforgotten passion stays,  
Just when I thought our thing was dead  
You called me long-distance and you said:  
"I want a lifetime affair with you  
We can have it on the side  
Like some roller-coaster midnight ride."  
But I froze and never told you that I felt the same way too.  
  
 And that was very foolish of me  
 Why did I have to be so slow?  
 When you told me you still loved me  
 Yes, I was a fool again, I know.  
  
Now I'm captured and you're free, this is what has come to be,  
But I'm lonely in my home  
Wondering if you are alone.  
And you're still on my mind, very much indeed  
I must be honest if I come  
I don't get loved enough, I need someone.  
And you are the one I find I want to need.  
  
 And this is very foolish of me  
 But you might be foolish too  
 So if you think you still could love me  
 Then let me be a fool this time for you.  
  
 Yes, I'm going to be a fool again, it's true,  
 But just let me be a fool this time for you.
