    What does this phrase 'Just a fool to believe' mean?

    Here are the context:
    <<Excess quoted text deleted by moderator>>
    Can't look in her eyes
    She's out of my league
    Just a fool to believe
    I have anything she needs

    I recognize the song sung by Patrick Swayze, and the phrase means that the woman who is the object of his desires is not attainable. He would be a fool if he believed that she would have any real interest in him.

    Maybe it's an elliptical expression? (I'd be just a fool to believe...)
