Fool For You (Live at Studio-333)

by Mike Vitale

Fool For You  words and music by Mike Vitale

the touch of your skin against mine
was flawless and supine
as I read your story in braille

my resolve was as frail
as that tall tale that lingered from my tongue
now I'm all twisted up
like a towel that's been wrung

maybe it's the conversation we had in bed
maybe i just want to see your eyes roll back in your head
maybe you're a drag from a stranger's cigarette
but once i've got you on my lips
you're hard to forget

and now that you've got me where you want
you're moving from hot to cool
and now that you've got me where you want
woman, i'm a fool for you

feeling your chest heave
as you're lying there asleep
now I'm bating every breath
so that the moment isn't cheap

are you resolved to entail
a large sail to guide me away
on some nautical course
that perhaps I'd rather stay

maybe you're just playing hard to get
or perhaps you just want me to forget
maybe I'm a marionette on strings
trying to measure your depth beyond anatomy

and now that you've got me where you want
you're moving from hot to cool
and now that you've got me where you want
woman, i'm a fool for you

and now that you've got me where you want
you're moving from hot to cool
and now that you've got me where you want
woman, i'm a fool for you
