Fool For You, stylized as fOoL fOr YoU, is a song of the English singer-songwriter Zayn Malik's debut solo album, Mind of MineIt is the tenth track of the album.

"Fool for You" depicts Malik as someone "destined to return to the same woman forever, regardless of how tainted their love becomes."[1]

Background

It is a retro piano ballad, with some electronic elements.[2] "Fool for You" is a Beatles-influenced pop ballad, which Malik says was influenced by John Lennon in particular.[3] "I was listening to a lot of John Lennon the week I got that loop," Zayn admitted. "And there was this one song I got addicted to, with Indian music at the front of it, sitar, and then it becomes, like, another song," he added, referring to Beatles classic ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’.

Lyrics

This love is tainted
I need you and I hate it
You're caught between a dream
And a movie scene
In a way, you know what I mean

When the dark turns to mist,
I just can't resist it

'Cause I'm a fool for you and the things you do
I'm a fool for you and the things, the things you do
The things you do, the things you do

When you're looking like this
I just can't resist it
I know sometimes I hide it
But I can't this time 'cause it's gonna defeat me
But you won't believe me, believe me

'Cause I'm a fool for you and the things you do
I'm a fool for you and the things, the things you do

I know, I know given a chance I'd do it again
'Cause I can't help myself
'Cause I can't stop myself
I just love being a fool for you

'Cause I'm a fool for you and the things you do
I'm a fool for you and the things, the things you do

This love is tainted
