George Michael

Careless whisper

Lyrics

play I feel so unsure
play As I take your hand
play and lead you to the dance floor
play As the music dies, something in your eyes
play Calls to mind the silver screen
play And all it's sad goodbyes

play I'm never gonna dance again
play Guilty feet have got no rhythm
play Though it's easy to pretend
play I know you're not a fool

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

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

play I'm never gonna dance again
play Guilty feet have got no rhythm
play Though it's easy to pretend
play I know you're not a fool

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

play Never without your love

play Tonight the music seems so loud
play I wish that we could lose this crowd
play Maybe it's better this way
play We'd hurt each other
play with the things we'd want to say

play We could have been so good together
play We could have lived this dance forever
play But now who's gonna dance with me
play Please stay

play And I'm never gonna dance again
play Guilty feet have got no rhythm
play Though it's easy to pretend
play I know you're not a fool

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

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