Foolish Love

This song is by Rufus Wainwright and appears on the album Rufus Wainwright (1998).

I don't want to hold you and feel so helpless
I don't want to smell you and lose my senses
And smile in slow motion with eyes in love

I twist like a corkscrew
The sweetness risin'
I drink from the bottle weepin'
Why won't you last?
Why can't you last?

So I will walk without care
Beat my snare
Look like a man who means business
Go to all the poshest places
With the familiar faces
Terminate all signs of weakness

Oh, all for the sake
All for the sake
Of a foolish love

I will take my coffee black
Never snack
Hang with the wolves who are sheepish
Flow through the veins of town
Always frown
Me and my mistress the princess

Oh, all for the sake
All for the sake
Of a foolish love
Yeah yeah

So the day Noah's Ark floats down Park
My eyes will be simply glazed over
Or better yet
I'll wear shades on sunless days
And when the sun's out
I'll stay in and slumber

Oh, all for the sake
All for the sake
Of a foolish love

For the sake
All for the sake
Of a foolish love

'Cause I don't want to hold you and feel so helpless
I don't want to smell you and lose my senses
And smile in slow motion with eyes in love
