"Foolish" as written by Mark Dwayne Debarge, Etterlene Jordan, Ashanti Douglas and Irving Lorenzo....
See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurtin' while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you
See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurtin' while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you

Baby I don't know why ya treat me so bad
You said you loved me, no one above me
And I was all you had
And though my heart is beating for ya
I can't stop crying
I don't know how
I allow you to treat me this way and still I stay

See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurtin' while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you
See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurtin while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you

Baby I don't know why ya wanna do me wrong
See when I'm home, I'm all alone
And you are always gone
And boy, you know I really love you
I can't deny
I can't see how you could bring me to so many tears
After all these years

See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurtin' while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you
See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurtin' while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you
Ooh
I trusted you, I trusted you
So sad, so sad
What love will make you do
All the things that we accept
Be the things that we regret
Too all of my ladies (ladies) feel me
C'mon sing wit me
See, when I get the strength to leave you
Always tell me that you need me
And I'm weak cause I believe you
And I'm mad because I love you
So I stop and think that may be
You can learn to appreciate me
Then it all remains the same that
You ain't never gonna change
(never gonna change, never gonna change)
See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurtin' while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you
See my days are cold without you
But I'm hurtin' while I'm with you
And though my heart can't take no more
I keep on running back to you

Baby why you hurt me leave me and desert me
Boy I gave you all my heart
And all you did was tear it up
Looking out my window
Knowing that I should go
Even when I pack my bags
See something always hold me back

    General CommentThis song is exactly what's happening between me and my ex boyfriend. Now we are friends but the same thing still happens and this song explains it completely.

    General CommentWell not too long ago I cought my ex with some girl in his house, the thing is that he lives next door, so obiously I was going to catch him with that other girl. I decided to call him to see what was going on she took the phone away from him and said she was the girlfriend and all that. You wouldnt believe the things one does 4 love, I was going to forgive him but he ended up wanting both of us but I said screw this am not going to be just another and left him I still see him with her everyday. It hurts but as long as she dont know who I truely am its all good cause am still going to kick her ass. But this song reminds me of him because he wanted me back and I think that he still does but he is not getting me back, that is the only difference in the story so I can relate to unfoolish as well.

    General CommentI'm the same way... guys can just be like that sometimes! But that's why we love them... I finally got over this one guy who cheated on me and messed things up over and over, then apologized... "Unfoolish" helped a lot, but there's always those times when I wish we still were together, and I can't help it- I'm foolish! :)

    General Commentthere's barely any r&b in me it's surprising I like this song. I think it's got something to do with the really nice melody.
