[Pattern 1]
I don't know why you're mean to me

[Pattern 2]
When I call on the telephone,

[Pattern 1]
And I don't know what you mean to me, but I want to turn you on

[Pattern 2]
Turn you up, figure you out, I wanna take you on.

 These words,              "You will be mine,"      All the time,

[Pattern 1]
"The Fool" might be my middle name

[Pattern 2]
But I'd be foolish not to say

[Pattern 1]
Gonna make whatever it takes, ring you up, call you down, sign your name,
Make it rhyme,

[Pattern 2]
Take you in and make you mine?

  What I want to feel,                              I want to feel it now.

[Pattern 1]
You know with love comes strange currencies,

[Pattern 2]
And here is my appeal:

[Pattern 1]
I need a chance, a second chance, a third chance, a fourth chance, a word,
a signal, a nod, a little breath

[Pattern 2]
Just to fool myself, to catch myself, to make it real, real
