  • You pick me up, then you put me down
    Can't seem to find my way around ya
    See what you think, when you don't think it now
    You lost my love but someone found it
    Now when the rain falls upon my head
    I don't think of you that much at all
    Just one thing seemed to make you care
    Who's gonna drive and take you home?

    Only a fool could walk away from me this time
    I look up to heaven, every star I see is mine
    Only a fool could walk away from me this time
    I'm walking on air, and every cloud is cloud 9

    You get your kicks playing stupid tricks
    But I've found another crush
    You got me now
    Game, set and match, don't seem to be no catch
    I don't think she'll drive me to the wall
    We go out at night, and the world starts feeling right
    She don't care about Hollywood
    I know you don't believe it, but this time I really mean it
    I hope it's clearly understood

    Only a fool could walk away from me this time
    I look up to heaven, every star I see is mine
    Only a fool could walk away from me this time
    I'm walking on air, and every cloud is cloud 9

    I'm not the one, the one for you
    Can't change it, baby
    I'm not the one, the one for you
    I know it, baby
    I'm not the one, the one for you
    Can't change it, baby
    I'm not the one, the one for you

    Only a fool could walk away from me this time, yeah
    I'm not the one, the one for you
    I look up to heaven, every star I see is mine
    I'm not the one, the one for you
    Only a fool could walk away from me this time
    I'm walking on air, and every cloud is cloud 9 Writer/s: Jason Kay, Matthew Richard Johnson
