Baby, baby, put your head upon my shoulder
Close your eyes and go to sleep
Sick and tired of feeling old and acting older
You just had to make a leap
Packed your bags while he was sleeping
Walked right out the bedroom door
You say that you’re leaving
And you’re never going home
But it don’t fool me.

Drove all night to get to nowhere by the morning
Watched the dawn turn night to day
Flicked the headlights off and parked up by the motel
Felt like nothing left to say
But as you showered I was thinking
Of everything you left behind
You say that it’s over
And you’ve nothing left to lose
But it don’t fool me.

‘Cause every reason that you give me
Begins and ends with nothing changed
You say that you love me
More than I will ever know
But it don’t fool me.

When I woke up you were nowhere
Just a crumple in the sheet
And you say that you did the right thing
For my sanity
But it don’t fool me
No, it don’t fool me
No, it don’t fool me
