[Verse 1]
All your expectations of my love are impossible
Surely, you know that I’m not easy to hold
It’s so sad how incapable of learning to grow I am
My heart speaks in puzzle and codes
I’ve been trying my whole life to solve
God only knows how I’ve cried
I can’t take another defeat
A next time would be the ending of me
Now that I see

[Chorus]
That love is a game for fools to play
And I ain’t fooling (Fooling), what a cruel thing (Cruel thing)
To self-inflict that pain
Love is a game for fools to play
And I ain’t fooling again (Fooling), what a cruel thing (Cruel thing)
To self-inflict that pain

[Verse 2]
How unbelievable (Unbelievable)
Of me to fall for the lies that I tell (Lies I tell)
The dream that I sell (Dream I sell)
When heartache, it’s inevitable (It’s inevitable)
But I’m no good at doing it well
Not that I care (I don’t care)
Why should anything about it be fair?

[Chorus]
When love is a game for fools to play
And I ain’t fooling (Fooling), what a cruel thing (Cruel thing)
To self-inflict that pain
Love is a game for fools to play
And I ain’t fooling again (Fooling), what a cruel thing (Cruel thing)
To self-inflict that pain

[Bridge]
No amount of love
Can keep me satisfied (Satisfied, satisfied)
I can’t keep up (Can’t keep up, can’t keep up)
When I keep changing my mind (Change my mind, change my mind)
The feelings flood me to the heights of no compromise

[Chorus]
Love is a game for fools to play
And I ain’t fooling (Fooling), what a cruel thing (Cruel thing)
To self-inflict that pain
Love is a game for fools to play
And I ain’t fooling (Fooling), what a cruel thing (Cruel thing)
To self-inflict that pain

[Outro]
I can love, I can love again
I love me now, like I loved him
I’m a fool for that
You know I, you know I’m gonna do it
Oh-oh-oh-oh
I’d do it all again like I did thenIn Adele’s for cover story interviews for the November 2021 issues of Vogue UK and the Vogue US, interviewers Giles Hattersley and Abby Aguirre were previewed this final track from Adele’s upcoming 30 album. Hattersley reported:She wants to play me a last song, the seven-minute opus that concludes the new album. It’s a knockout. A string-swirling, Garland-invoking, jazzy, campy, swooning delight, packed with world-weary end-of-the-show reflection, and featuring a vocal for the ages. She watches happily as I beam my way through listening to it. Breakfast at Tiffany’s was playing on the television in the studio when she recorded it, and she says it’s the end song the movie should have had. But it’s also the coda on her recent chapter.Aguirre futher reported “the arrangement is whimsical and wall-of-sound retro, full of strings and vibrato and midcentury romance, but the lyrics deliver a subversive twist” and quoted Adele as explaining:As [Breakfast at Tiffany’s] finished, we were trying to work out how to end the song, and I said, ‘We should write it as if we were writing the soundtrack—you know, at the end of the movie, where it pans out.’
