[Fill] [Pattern 1] 
[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
