Foolin' Myself lyrics

Peter tinturin / jack lawrence

I try to keep you out of my heart
But somehow I find
Trying to keep you out of my heart
Im out of my mind
I tell myself Im through with you
And Ill having nothing more to do with you
I stay away, but every day
Im just foolin myself

Tell my friends that I dont care
I shrug my shoulders at the whole affair
But all know it ist so
Im just foolin myself

And evry time I pass
And see my face in a looking glass
I tip my hat and say
How do you do, you fool
Youre trowing your life away
Im acting gay
Im acting proud
And every time I see you in a crowd
I may pretend
But in the end
Im just foolin myself
