"Foolish Heart" as written by Randy Goodrum and Stephen Ray Perry....
I need a love that grows
I don't want it unless I know
With each passin' 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 calling
Stop before you start falling
Foolish heart, heed my warning
You've been wrong before
Don't be wrong anymore

Feelin' that feelin' again
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 calling
Stop before, you start falling
Foolish heart, heed my warning
You've been wrong before
Don't be wrong anymore
Foolish heart
Foolish, foolish heart
You've been wrong before

Foolish heart, hear me calling
Stop before you start falling
Foolish heart, heed my warning
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

    General Commentits about a person who's been hurt before and he doesnt wanna risk getting hurt again.
    he cares alot about this person hes in love with but he questions his feelings because if this doesnt work out he knows he will be hurt again
    this is my theme song

    General CommentI agree with "musicandmore21". I think he is trying to tell himself to be realistic and practical before jumping into something that might be just another foolish game. Which is why he telling his heart to make sure how he truely feels before making a wrong decision. Yet, another heartfelt song. Steve Perry truly has a great voice.

    General CommentThis is one of he's greatest in my opinion.. No one else could capture he's soul and he's heart that's in the song.. Not sure if it's true in Steve Perry's life, but the song speaks to everybody in General that's been hurt before.. 3 Things guarantee in life, Death Taxes and a Broken heart..
