Song Lyrics #20 - Careless Whisper

by - October 13, 2019

 

This week I'm looking at Careless Whisper by George Michael. Is this a powerful song or what? And the saxophone, along with the lyrics, has such a melancholy tone. I read that he wrote this song at 17, and as one can surmise, it was about a relationship he had. Amazing.       

So what do you think?   

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 the silver screen 
And all its sad good-byes 

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 

Should've known better than to cheat a friend
And waste the 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 whispers 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 

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've known better than to cheat a friend 
And waste the chance that I'd been given 
So I'm never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you 

Never without your love 

Tonight 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'd want to say

We could have been so good together 
We could have lived this dance forever
But no one's going to dance with me
Please stay

And 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 

Should've known better than to cheat a friend 
And waste the chance that I'd been given 
So I'm never gonna dance again 
The way I danced with you 

Now that you're gone 
Now that you're gone What I did's so wrong, so wrong 
That you had to leave me alone
