George Michael You Have Been Loved lyrics

she takes the back road and the lane
past the school that has not changed
in all this time
she thinks of when the boy was young
all the battles she had won
just to give him life

that man
she loves that man
for all his life
but now we meet to take him flowers
and only God knows why
for what's the use in pressing palms
when children fade in mother's armes **** Missing
it's a cruel world
we've so mush to lose
and what we have to learn, we rarely choose

so if it's God who took her son
he cannot be the one living in her mind

take care my love, she said
don't think that God is dead
take care my love, she said

you have been loved

If I was weak, forgive me
but I was terrified
you brushed my eyes with angels wings, full of love
the kind that makes devils cry

so these days
my life has changed
and I'll be fine
but she just sits and counts the hours
searching for her crime

so what's the use of pressing palms
if you won't keep such love from harm
it's a cruel world
you've so much to prove

and heaven help the ones who wait for you

well I've no daughters, I've no sons
guess I'm the only one
living in my life

take care my love, he said *** he said / not she
don't think that God is dead
take care my love, he said *** he said / not she
you have been loved

George Michael The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face lyrics

the first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
and the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
to the dark and endless skies, my love
to the dark and empty skies

the first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hands
like the trembling heart of a captive bird
that was there at my command, my love
that was there at my command

the first time I ever lay with you
and felt you heart so close to mine
and I knew our joy would fill the world
and would last till the and of time, my love
it would last till the end of time
the first time ever I saw your face
your face, your face

George Michael Star People lyrics

star people
counting your money till your soul turns green
star people
counting the cost of your desire to be seen

I do not count myself among you
I may be living in a dream
it's just there seem so many of you
can't help but hope
there's a difference between...you and me

you're a star
(I'm talking to you)
you're a star

maybe your mama gave you up boy
(it's the same old same old)
maybe your daddy didn't love you enough girl

star people
never forget your secret's safe with me
just look at all the wonderful people
trying to forget they had to pay for what you see

it's a dream
with a nightmare stuck in the middle
but where would you be
without all of that attention
you'd die
I'd die
we'd die wouldn't we
(well wouldn't we)

big, big, star!
should go far!

chorus

talk about your mother
talk about your father
talk about the people
who have made you what you are
talk about your teacher
the bully boy who beat you
talk about the people who have paid
for that new sports car

did you get off on a bad foot, baby
do you have a little tale to tell
is that why you're star?
is that what makes a star?

nothing comes from nothing, baby
that fame and fortune's heaven sent
and who gives a fuck about your problems, darling
when you can pay the rent

how much is enough?

George Michael Spinning The Wheel lyrics

spin the wheel

five o'clock in the morning
you ain't home
I can't help thinking that's strange
Baby I just want you to know
I won't go through it again
yes, those clouds are closing in

and I will not accept this as a part of my life
I will not live in fear
of what may be
and the lessons I have learned...
I would rather be alone than watch you
spinning that wheel for me

you've got a thing about danger
ain't you getting what you want from me
you've got a thing about strangers
baby that's what we used to be
you've got a thing about danger baby
I guess the hungry just can't see
one of these days
you're gonna bring some home to me

six o'clock in the morning
you ain't home
I can't help thinking that's strange
it seems that everybody takes their chances
these days
oh yeah we're standing in the rain

and I will not accept this as part of my life etc...

how can you love me
when you are playing with my life
you say give me time and I'll do better I swear
give me time and I'll lead you back to despair
and I don't want to go back there

George Michael Praying For Time lyrics

These are the days of the open hand
They will not be the last
Look around now
These are the days of the beggars and the choosers

This is the year of the hungry man
Whose place is in the past
Hand in hand with ignorance
And legitimate excuses

The rich declare themselves poor
And most of us are not sure
If we have too much
But we'll take our chances
'Cause God's stopped keeping score
I guess somewhere along the way
He must have let us all out to play
Turned his back and all God's children
Crept out the back door

And it's hard to love, there's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above say it's much too much too late
Well maybe we should all be praying for time

These are the days of the empty hand
Oh you hold on to what you can
And charity is a coat you wear twice a year

This is the year of the guilty man
Your television takes a stand
And you find that what was over there is over here

So you scream from behind your door
Say what's mine is mine and not yours
I may have too much but I'll take my chances
'Cause God's stopped keeping score
And you cling to the things they sold you
Did you cover your eyes when they told you
That he can't come back
'Cause he has no children to come back for

It's hard to love there's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope when there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above say it's much too late
So maybe we should all be praying for time

George Michael Kissing A Fool lyrics

You are far,
When I could have been your star,
You listened to people,
Who scared you to death, and from my heart,
Strange that you were strong enough,
To even make a start,
But you'll never find
Peace of mind,
Til you listen to your heart,

People,
You can never change the way they feel,
Better let them do just what they will,
For they will,
If you let them,
Steal your heart from you,
People,
Will always make a lover feel a fool,
But you knew I loved you,
We could have shown them all,
We should have seen love through,

Fooled me with the tears in your eyes,
Covered me with kisses and lies,
So goodbye,
But please don't take my heart,

You are far,
I'm never gonna be your star,
I'll pick up the pieces
And mend my heart,
Maybe I'll be strong enough,
I don't know where to start,
But I'll never find
Peace of mind,
While I listen to my heart,

People,
You can never change the way they feel,
Better let them do just what they will,
For they will,
If you let them,
Steal your heart,

And people,
Will always make a lover feel a fool,
But you knew I loved you,
We could have shown them all,

But remember this,
Every other kiss,
That you ever give
Long as we both live
When you need the hand of another man,
One you really can surrender with,
I will wait for you,
Like I always do,
There's something there,
That can't compare with any other,

You are far,
When I could have been your star,
You listened to people,
Who scared you to death, and from my heart,
Strange that I was wrong enough,
To think you'd love me too.
I guess you were kissing a fool,
You must have been kissing a fool.

George Michael Freedom lyrics

Every day I hear a different story
People say that you're no good for me
Sow you lover with another
She's making a fool of you
If you loved me baby, you'd deny it
But you laugh and tell me I should try it
Tell me I'm a baby and I don't understand
But you know that I'll forgive you
Just this once, twice, forever
'Cos baby, you could drag me to hell and back
As long as we're together
And you do

Chorus:
I don't want your freedom
I don't want to play around
I don't want nobody, baby
Part time love just brings me down
I don't want your freedom
Girl, all I want right now is you

Like a prisoner who has his own key
But I can't escape until you love me
I just go from day to day
Knowing all about the other boys
(Oh oh ...)
You take my hand and tell me I'm a fool
To give you all that I do
I bet you someday, baby
Someone says the same to you
But you know that I'll forgive you
Just this once, twice, forever
'Cos baby, you could drag me to hell and back
Just as long as we're together
And you do

Chorus:

You're hurting me, baby
You're hurting me, baby
Oh oh ...
You're hurting me, baby
You're hurting me, baby
But you know that I'll forgive you
Just this once, twice, forever
'Cos baby, you could drag me to hell and back
Just as long as we're together
And you do

Chorus:

I don't want your
I don't want your
I don't want your
I don't want your

To fade ...

George Michael Father Figure lyrics

That's all I wanted, something special,
Something sacred in your eyes,
For just one moment, to be bold and naked
At your side

Sometimes I think that you'll never understand me
Maybe this time is forever, say it can't be

That's all you wanted, something special,
Someone sacred in your life
Just for one moment, to be warm and naked
At my side

Sometimes I think that you'll never understand me
But something tells me together, we'd be happy

I will be your father figure (Oh baby)
Put your tiny hand in mine (I'd love to)
I will be your preacher teacher (Be your daddy)
Anything you have in mind (It would make me)
I will be your father figure (Very happy)
I have had enough of crime (Please let me)
I will be the one who loves you
Until the end of time

That's all I wanted
But sometimes love can be mistaken for a crime
That's all I wanted just to see my baby's blue EYES shine
This time I think that my lover understands me
If we have faith in each other
Then we can be strong

I will be your father figure
Put your tiny hand in mine
I will be your preacher teacher
Anything you have in mind
I will be your father figure
I have had enough of crime
I will be the one who loves you
Until the end of time

If you are the desert, I'll be the sea
If you ever hunger - hunger for me
Whatever you ask for, that's what I'll be

So when you remember the ones who have lied
Who said that they cared
But then laughed as you cried
Beautiful darling, don't think of me

Because all I ever wanted
It's in your eyes baby, baby
And love can't lie, no...
(Greet me with the eyes of a child)
My love is always telling me so
(Heaven is a kiss and a smile)
Just hold on, hold on
I won't let you go, my baby

I will be your father figure
Put your tiny hand in mine
I will be your preacher teacher
Anything you have in mind
I will be your father figure
I have had enough of crime
So I am gonna love you
Until the end of time
I will be your father
I will be your preacher
I'll be your daddy
I will be the one who loves you
Until the end of time

George Michael Fastlove lyrics

(Gotta get up, get down...)
(gotta get up, get down...)
(ooh ooh, baby baby...)

Looking for some education
Made my way into the night
All that bullshit conversation
Baby can't you read the signs?

I won't bore you with the detail baby
I don't even wannna waste your time
Let's just say that maybe
You could help to ease my mind
Baby, I ain't Mr. Right

But if you're looking for fastlove
If that's love in your eyes
It's more than enough
Had some bad luck
Some fastlove is all that I've got on my mind

(ooh ooh, baby baby)
Ooh, yeah yeah
(ooh ooh, baby baby)
What's there to think about baby?
(ooh ooh, baby baby)
Hey baby, oh yeah
(ooh ooh, baby baby)

Looking for some affirmation
Made my way into the sun
My friends got their ladies
They're all having babies
I just wanna have some fun

I won't bore you with the detail baby
You gotta get there in your own sweet time
Let's just say that maybe
You could help to ease my mind
Baby, I ain't Mr. Right

But if you're looking for fastlove
If that's love in your eyes
It's more than enough
Had some bad luck
Some fastlove is all that I've got on my mind
Get yourself arrested for love

So close
I can taste it now baby
So close

In the absence of security
Made my way into the night
Stupid Cupid keeps on calling me
But I see nothing in his eyes
I miss my baby, oh yeah
I miss my baby tonight
So why don't we make a little room
In my BMW babe
Searchin' for some peace of mind
Hey, I'll help you find it
I do believe that we are practicing the same religion

Oh you really oughta get up now
That's right
Oh you really oughta get up
(ooh ooh, baby baby...)
Oh yeah....
Looking for some affirmation..

George Michael Faith lyrics

Well I guess it would be nice
If I could touch your body
I know not everybody
Has got a body like you

But I've got to think twice
Before I give my heart away
And I know all the games you play
Because I play them too

Oh but I
Need some time off from that emotion
Time to pick my heart up off the floor
And when that love comes down
Without devotion
Well it takes a strong man baby
But I'm showing you the door

'Cause I gotta have faith...

Baby
I know you're asking me to stay
Say please, please, please, don't go away
You say I'm giving you the blues
Maybe
You mean every word you say
Can't help but think of yesterday
And another who tied me down to loverboy rules

Before this river
Becomes an ocean
Before you throw my heart back on the floor
Oh baby I reconsider
My foolish notion
Well I need someone to hold me
But I'll wait for something more

Yes I've gotta have faith...

George Michael Everything She Wants (remix taken from Final) lyrics

Somebody told me
Boy everything she wants is everything she sees
I guess I must have loved you
Because I said you were the perfect girl for me, baby

And now we're six months older
And everything you want and everything you see
Is out of reach not good enough
I don't know what the hell you want from me

Somebody tell me
(won't you tell me)
Why I work so hard for you
(To give you money, work to give you money)

Some people work for a living
Some people work for fun
Girl I just work for you
They told me marriage was give and take
Well you've shown me you can take
You've got some giving to do
And now you tell me that your having my baby
I'll tell you that I'm happy if you want me to
But one step further and my back will break
If my best isn't good enough
Then how can it be good enough for two

I can't work any harder than I do

Somebody tell me
(won't you tell me)
Why I work so hard for you
(To give you money, work to give you money)

Oh why do I do the things I do
I'd tell you if I knew
My God, I don't even think that I love you

(Won't you tell me)
(To give you money, work to give you money)

How could you settle
For a boy like me
When all I could see
Was the end of the week
All the things we sign
And the things we buy
Ain't gonna keep us together
It's just a matter of time

My situation
Never changes
Walking in and out of that door
Like a stranger
For the wages
I give you all
You say you want more

And all I could see
Was the end of the week
All the things we sign
And the things we buy
Ain't gonna keep us together
Girl it's just a matter of time

George Michael Careless Whisper lyrics

I feel so unsure,
As I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor.
As the music dies...
Something in your eyes,
Calls to mind a silver screen,
And all its sad goodbyes.

CHORUS
I'm never gonna dance again,
Guilty feet have got no rhythm.
Though it's easy to pretend,
I know you're not a fool.
I should have known better than to cheat a friend,
And waste a chance that I'd been given.
So I'm never gonna dance again,
The way I danced with you.

Time can never mend,
The careless whisper of a good friend.
To the heart and mind,
ignorance is kind
There's no comfort in the truth,
Pain is all you'll find.

REPEAT CHORUS

What am I without your love?
Tonite the music seems so loud,
I wish that we could lose this crowd.
Maybe it's better this way,
We'd hurt each other with the things we want to say.

We could have been so good together,
We could have lived this dance forever...
But now, who's gonna dance with me?
Please stay.
(Alternatively):
And now it's never gonna be
That way...

REPEAT CHORUS

Now that you're gone...
Now that you're gone...
Now that you're gone...
Was what I did so wrong?
So wrong that you had to leave me alone?

George Michael As lyrics

As around the sun the Earth knows she's revolving
And the rosebuds know to bloom in early May
Just as hate knows love's the cure
You can rest your mind assure
That I'll be loving you always

As now can't reveal the mystery of tomorrow
But in passing will grow older every day
Just as all is born is new
Do you know what I say is true
That I'll be loving you always

Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
Until the ocean covers every mountain high
Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4
Until the day that is the day that are no more

Did you know that true love asks for nothing
Her acceptance is the way we pay
Did you know that life has given love a guarantee
To last through forever and another day

As today I know I'm living but tomorrow
Could make me the past
but that I mustn't fear
Now I know deep in my mind
The love of me I've dropped behind
And I'll be loving you always

Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
Until the ocean covers every mountain high
Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea
Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream
Until the day is night and night becomes the day
Until the trees and seas just up and fly away
Until the day that 8x8x8 is 4
Until the day that is the day that are no more

did you know that true love asks for nothing
her acceptance is the way we pay
did you know that life has given love a guarantee
to last through forever and another day

As around the sun the earth knows she's revolving
and the rosebuds know to bloom in early May
for now I know deep in my mind
the love of me I've left behind
and I'll be loving you always

Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
Until the ocean covers every mountain high
Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea
Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream

Until the day is night and night becomes the day
Until the trees and seas just up and fly away
Until the day that 8X8X8 is 4
Until the day that is the day that are no more

George Michael One More Try lyrics

I've had enough of danger
And people on the streets
I'm looking out for angels
Just trying to find some peace
Now I think it's time
That you let me know
So if you love me
Say you love me
But if you don't just let me go...

'Cos teacher
There are things that I don't want to learn
And the last one I had
Made me cry
So I don't want to learn to
Hold you, touch you
Think that you're mine
Because it ain't no joy
For an uptown boy
Whose teacher has told him goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

When you were just a stranger
And I was at your feet
I didn't feel the danger
Now I feel the heat
That look in your eyes
Telling me no
So you think that you love me
Know that you need me
I wrote the song, I know it's wrong
Just let me go...

And teacher
There are things
That I don't want to learn
Oh the last one I had
Made me cry
So I don't want to learn to
Hold you, touch you
Think that you're mine
Because it ain't no joy
For an uptown boy
Whose teacher has told him goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

So when you say that you need me
That you'll never leave me
I know you're wrong, you're not that strong
Let me go

And teacher
There are things
That I still have to learn
But the one thing I have is my pride
Oh so I don't want to
Hold you, touch you
Think that you're mine
Because there ain't no joy
For an uptown boy
Who just isn't willing to try

I'm so cold
Inside
Maybe just one more try...

George Michael Jesus To A Child lyrics

Kindness In your eyes
I guess You heard me cry
You smiled at me
Like Jesus to a child

I'm blessed I know
Heaven sent And Heaven stole
You smiled at me
Like Jesus to a child

And what have I learned
From all this pain
I thought I'd never feel the same
About anyone
Or anything again

But now I know
When you find love
When you know that it exists
Then the lover that you miss
Will come to you on those cold, cold nights

When you've been loved
When you know it holds such bliss
Then the lover that you kissed
Will comfort you when there's no hope in sight

Sadness In my eyes
No one guessed
Or no one tried
You smiled at me
Like Jesus to a child

Loveless and cold
With your last breath
You saved my soul
You smiled at me
Like Jesus to a child

And what have I learned
From all these tears
I've waited for you all those years
And just when it began
He took your love away

But I still say
When you find love
When you know that it exists
Then the lover that you miss
Will come to you on those cold, cold nights

When you've been loved
When you know it holds such bliss
Then the lover that you kissed
Will comfort you when there's no hope in sight

So the words you could not say
I'll sing them for you
And the love we would have made
I'll make it for two

For every single memory
Has become a part of me
You will always be My love

Well I've been loved
So I know just what love is
And the lover that I kissed
Is always by my side

Oh the lover I still miss
Was Jesus to a child

George Michael Heal The Pain lyrics

Let me tell you a secret
Put it in your heart and keep it
Something that I want you to know
Do something for me
Listen to my simple story
And maybe we'll have something to show

You tell me you're cold on the inside
How can the outside world
Be a place that your heart can embrace
Be good to yourself
Because nobody else
Has the power to make you happy
How can I help you
Please let me try to
I can heal the pain
That you're feeling inside
Whenever you want me
You know that I will be
Waiting for the day
That you say you'll be mine

He must have really hurt you
To make you say the things that you do
He must have really hurt you
To make those pretty eyes look so blue

He must have known
That he could
That you'd never leave him
Now you can't see my love is good
And that I'm not him

How can I help you
Please let me try to
I can heal the pain
That you're feeling inside
Whenever you want me
You know that I will be
Waiting for the day
That you say you'll be mine

Who needs a lover
That can't be a friend
Something tells me I'm the one you've been looking for
If you ever should see him again
Won't you tell him you've found someone who gives you more

Someone who will protect you
Love and respect you
All those things
That he never could bring to you
Like I do
Or rather I would
Won't you show me your heart
Like you should

Won't you let me in
Let this love begin
Won't you show me your heart now
I'll be good to you
I can make this thing true
And get to your heart somehow
