George Michael – John And Elvis Are Dead (Patience Album)

Close friend of mine as a child fell into a slumber
No sign of life since ’75
Then one day he just, what do you know
I guess God just called his number

He called me up he called me up and said
"I’ve been awake about a week
I’m thinking about asking the doctor
If he could put me back to sleep"
Then he laughed and said
"Hey all the girls they look the same"
Don’t they know just what their mothers
Paid in blood, and tears to change

But the words that made me cry
The thing he softly said
It stayed with me, it keeps messing with my head
He said, "If Jesus Christ is alive and well
Then how come John and Elvis are dead?"

Youth, beautiful youth
We walked through the walls until we found the truth
And said "Change it, it’s ugly just change it"
Everyone we used to know
Must have given up, so long ago
You can see it, it’s written on their faces
And the inside of their clothes

But the words that made me cry
‘Cause I knew just what they meant
He turned to me and said
"Hey boy, if Jesus Christ is alive and well
Then how come John and Elvis are dead?"

"Tell me if Jesus Christ is alive and well
Then how come Marvin and Elvis are dead?"

I said "If Jesus Christ is going to save us from ourselves
How come peace, love and Elvis are dead?"

George Michael – Cars And Trains (Patience Album)

(Hello you’ve reached the afterlife message center.
The god you are trying to reach is not available to take your call)

Mama’s gone and got herself a new man
It’s a shame,
He’s the same
Mama please please, stop pretending
This time, you won’t end in tears
I find myself, with a new daddy
My mama needs love you see
Guess she don’t wanna be lonely

And nobody’s keeping score
I don’t say hi to those guys no more
Said mama can’t you feel me
Holding my breath as they knock, knock, knock on our door

You’re just taking your ass to the top of that building
Throwing yourself under cars and trains
Taking the pill that you know will kill you
Under the wheels,
The same, the same

Johnny’s gone and got himself a new man
He gets laid, every day
Johnny please please, stop pretending
This time, may just end in tears
Take care of yourself
Because you won’t find ‘daddy’
When you’re popping those pills
Oh Johnny, is the danger just part of the thrill?

And nobody’s keeping score
Johnny those guys that you shake it for
I said "Johnny can’t you hear them
Saying mama knows best as they knock, knock,
Knock on your door"

You’re just taking your ass to the top of that building
Throwing yourself under cars and trains
Taking the pill that you know will kill you
Under the wheels, the same, the same

Taking your ass to the top of that building
Throwing yourself under cars and trains
Taking the pill that you know will kill you
Under the wheels, wheels, wheels

Taking your ass to the top of that building
Under cars and trains
Taking the pill that you know will kill you
The same, the same, the same

Pretty girl, little girl, what were you thinking
Just 18 at the time
You were a mother and child, at the same time
You were a mother and child
So young and fucked up baby
Always higher than a child should see
Forgive me

To the top of that building
Under cars and trains
Taking the pill that you know will kill you
Under the wheels, wheels, wheels

Mama don’t you let him stay

From bastard to loser, hurt you, used you in every way,
Mama, don’t let him stay, please
Don’t let him stay

I said Jesus, Mary, and the Saints above,
Won’t you show him love?

I said Jesus, Mary, and the Saints above,
Won’t you show him love?

George Michael – Round Here (Patience Album)

My daddy got here on the gravy train
I guess my mama had a real bad start to the game
They went walking and she took his name
Round here

There was dancing in the afternoons those days
Waiting tables, chasing girls with the money he made
It was 1957, and love felt the same, love felt the same

Frightened little girl, she makes a break
Into the arms of, something better
Round here

I hear my mama call in Kingsbury Park
Just me and David and a football that glowed in the dark
Waiting patiently to make my mark
Round here

And I remember my first day at school
And I remember trouble, and thinking I was so cool
I remember it all, like yesterday

Don’t you

Every time I try to leave this place
Something inside says, "You can do better"
Round here

So come with me, let me show you where I’ve lived
I want to put my hands in this earth again
Music fell like rain to the streets
The Specials and The Jam, to The Beat
Even though I think I’ve seen everything there is to see of this world
I gotta be thankful that this crowded space
Is the place of my birth

When all that I wanted, was to be someone.

Two little Hitlers in an old church hall
Some cheesy covers and those neighbors that banged on the walls
Andy says it’s time to show them all
Round here

Please sir, we two have other plans
Please sir you would not understand,
What’s going on
Is magical, can’t you see
That some of us do more than dream

Every time I try to leave this place
Something inside says, "Keep on keeping, on and on…."
Around here

So come with me, let me show you where I’ve lived
I want to put my hands in this earth again
Music fell like rain to the streets
The Specials and The Jam, ABC
Even though I think I’ve seen everything there is to see of this world
I gotta be thankful that this crowded space
Is the place of my birth

My birth,
In this town,
Yes I guess I got to be someone

To be somebody
In the Beautiful city

This place I call home
These streets of London
It’s everything I know (everything and everybody)
On the streets of London
I want to thank you

My daddy got here on the gravy train.

George Michael – Shoot The Dog (Patience Album)

Bullyboy, gonna show ya who’s tough,

Though I know that there’s no lord above
I believe in me, I believe in you
And you know I believe in love
I believe in truth though I lie a lot
I feel the pain from the push and shove
No matter what you put me through
I’ll still believe in love

George Michael – My Mother Had A Brother (Patience Album)

My mother had a brother
They say that I was born on the day that he died
Someone to cling to, she said
When all the noises and the shame came calling

My mother had a brother
I thought I knew them all, I thought I knew
But she lied
I said, "Show me his face again, tell me again why he died"

She said he couldn’t wait for the things that I’ve seen
She said he wasn’t strong enough, he never dared to dream a life like mine

My mother had a brother
Over-sensitive and kind
Seems it all became too much for him.
It seems he took his own life
Mum, I can’t imagine the joy and pain in equal measure
Tears in the dirt, and all over your newborn treasure

I guess he had to wait until my momma had me
I guess he couldn’t wait another moment to be free
In endless sky

But mama will you tell him from your boy
The times they changed
I guess the world was getting warmer
And we got stronger
Mother will you tell him about my joy
I live each day for him
The sun came out, yeah, and I’m just breathing it in

My mother had a brother
Same desire, different time
Seems the empty spaces tortured him
Until he took his own life

I don’t know why I waited so long for love
I just don’t know what I was thinking of
All that wasted time

But mama will you tell him from your boy
The times they changed
I guess the world was getting warmer
While we got stronger
Mother will you tell him about my joy
I live each day with him
Your son came out, yeah,
And I’m still breathing it in

And I swear now that freedom is here
I’m gonna taste it all for you boy
I’m bad to the bone, I’m just a little torn
I’m making so much love

So those of us who have nothing to fear
We’ve got to make damn sure that it was worth it
I’m bad to the bone, I’m just a little stoned
I’m making so much love

I was a prisoner, but he saved me
Broke into my dreams and said, "Who cares?"
I was a prisoner, so disgrace me
I’m glad to be home
And I don’t believe they care.

George Michael – Flawless (Go To The City) (Patience Album)

Cause you’re beautiful (Like no other)
Cause you’re beautiful (maybe tonight, they’ll see you tonight)

Beautiful, beautiful

And it’s no good waiting by the window
It’s no good waiting for the sun
Please believe me, the things you dream of
They don’t fall in the laps of no-one

And it’s no good
Waiting, waiting
And it’s no good
Waiting

You’ve got to go to the city

Always the same
Always the same dreams yeah yeah
Always the same (yes you’re movin’ up)

Well you’ve got to think of something
Cause your job pays you nothing
But you’ve got the things God gave you
So the music may yet be your savior

Got to be a way, some way
Got to be some way to make your way to the light (All the girls say)
Got to be some way, today, today, maybe tonight, maybe tonight

And it’s always the same
Always the same dreams yeah yeah
Always the same (yes you’re movin’ up)

You’re beautiful, you are, and you know it
You’re wasted here, you’re a star
In this small town of hand-me-downs who don’t even know it

Sometimes it brings you down
Sometimes it eats you up
Sometimes you think that your head’s going to blow
It doesn’t get better

Don’t you know, you’ve got to go to the city
You’ve got to reach the other side of the glass
I think you’ll make it in the city baby
I think you know that you are more than just
Some fucked up piece of ass

Got to be a way, some way
Got to be some way to make your way to the light (All the boys say)
Got to be some way, today, today, maybe tonight,
They’ll see you tonight

And it’s always the same
Always the same
Always the same dreams yeah yeah
Always the same (yes you’re movin’ up)

Cause you’re beautiful (like no other)
Cause you’re beautiful (take me, make me)
Cause you’re beautiful (maybe tonight, they’ll see you tonight)

Beautiful, beautiful

And it’s no good waiting by the window
It’s no good waiting for the sun
Please believe me, the things you dream of
They don’t fall in the laps of no-one

And it’s no good,
Waiting, waiting
And it’s no good
Waiting

You’ve got to go to the city
You’ve got to go to the city,
They’re going to find you there

Cause you’re beautiful
Cause you’re beautiful

Sometimes it brings you down
Sometimes it eats you up
Sometimes you think that your head’s going to blow and
It doesn’t get better

Don’t you know, you’ve got to go to the city
You’ve got to reach the other side of the glass
I think you’ll make it in the city baby
I think you know that you are more than just
Some fucked up piece of ass

More than just

Sid you’ve got to think of something
Cause your job pays you nothing
But you’ve got the things God gave you
So the music may yet be your savior

Do you want a savior, savior
Say that you do,
You know you’re wasted here, wasted here
And there ain’t no miracles happening any time soon

George Michael – American Angel (Patience Album)

Bless the day you came into my life, I still remember
Horny cowboy with your stars and stripes
Bringing the light into my day
With that Texan smile

Too afraid to love, to hope that you would stay
So broken that I never saw you chase the past away

My American Angel, he doesn’t want to fight (doesn’t need to fight)
My U.S of Angel, holds me in the dead of night
Takes away that fear that I carried forever
You stopped to wipe away my tears
And you stayed forever and more

Yesterday it seemed my life was colder than December
All alone I watched the eagles fly
Even the light seemed to have changed
In the Californian sky

Through all of those battles then you came
Stepped out of the fading light
Said, "Baby I’m American, dry your eyes again,
Because I’m here to save your life"

My American Angel, he doesn’t want to fight (doesn’t need to fight)
My U.S of Angel, holds me in the dead of night
Takes away that fear that I carried forever
You stopped to wipe away my tears
But you stayed forever amore

And more, didn’t you baby

Because I don’t think that I could love and lose again
I don’t think I have the strength
I don’t think I have the strength

I don’t think that I

George Michael – Precious Box (Patience Album)

In my house there’s a circle, where the life comes in
From the stars to my home, down through the stone,
I could have been so alone,
Without my precious box
Have I a family? I guess not
I’ve never seen a lot of beauty
In my life.

Well in your house there are servants, and the lights all dim
Such a beautiful home, your agent’s on the phone, they never
Leave you alone
The party never stops!
You say that’s fantasy, I say "So what, I need a little
Beauty"

So let me in,
You know you’ve kind of got under my skin
You know we never see a lot of the action round here
My dear
You may want to strip again

And you look so fine in your Gucci suit
And you’re making more money than your daddy
Could have imagined
But people can go out of fashion, honey, yeah, any time

So take that picture, stop acting so dumb
Don’t you know that the moment will come
I will find someone like you
But with something extra, I’m sorry baby
I don’t know why
I don’t know why that is

The systematic breakdown of my community
You know I hate my job, I try to save but God
There’s just never enough
Switch on, the pressure, stops
You know the one for me, she’s on Fox
And she’s a little beauty

Give me your life, give me your life, I want it
Because lately, it’s so freezing out here
(This side of the glass, life keeps kicking my ass)
In so many ways, but you make it good
Made me the kind of happy that my baby never could
(This side of the glass)

So take that picture, stop acting so dumb
Don’t you know that the moment will come
I will find someone like you
But with something extra, I’m so sorry baby
I don’t know why
I don’t know why that is

Precious keeps me company
Keeps me from being alone

Because no-one comes in the morning
No-one comes in the evening time
I’d sit and wait for the phone to ring
I could be waiting my whole damn life

So sick of the same old faces
In this street, where nobody talks to me
And the funny side of the situation is
I don’t care, I’ll always be there

When you come down from the sky
And make yourself at home
In my house

Because these days it’s the money the money
The money, honey, or your life
I said don’t you know you can’t have both

Stop acting so dumb
The moment will come
I will find someone like you
Something extra, (always happens baby to me) sorry baby
I don’t know why (something)
Said I don’t know why that is

You may want to strip again
You may want to let me in
You may want to sacrifice
More than you think is fair or right

You may want to think again
You may want to watch your friends
You may want to change your mind
You may wish you could turn back time.

George Michael – Please Send Me Someone (Anselmo’s Song) (Patience Album)

Some people said, if I could only care for you
Some people said, he will never love again
Some people said, you can see it in his eyes
He keeps it all inside and yet . . .
Some people say, in time, we all teach ourselves to live this way

And for a thousand days, I was lost
I thought never to be found
Underground
And don’t you think I’m ready now?
So please send me someone to love . .

Please send me someone, someone to love
As much as I loved you
(The way I loved you, darlin’)
Please, please send me someone, someone to love
Please send me someone

Any time, any day, any time, any day now
Any time any day, any time, any day now
Please, please send me someone
Just to hold me now that you’re gone

Some people say, ‘I hope you know I’m there for you’
Some of the people said – nothing
And nothing was just fine
(You know how I get sometimes . . .)

And for a thousand days, I was lost
I said, ‘Heaven knows I’m ready to be found’
Underground
But I think I’m ready now
So please send me someone to love

Please send me someone, someone to love
As much as I loved you
Please, please send me someone, someone to love
Please send me someone
Please send me someone

Any time any day any time any day now
Any time any day any time any day now
Please, please send me someone

So say that you will, because the nights are long
Without our song to sing
Just search the clouds until . . . until
So say that you will
Show me right from wrong
Without our song to sing
Just search the clouds until . . . until
And Darlin’ darlin’ though I can’t replace you, there’s a
Space in my heart
A space that you left in my heart
Just give me something that will pull me back from the blue

Oh send me someone like you

Darlin’ darlin’ no I can’t replace you, there’s a space in my heart
A space that you left in my heart
Just give me something that will pull me back from the blue

Please send me someone to love

George Michael – Through (Patience Album)

Is that enough?
I think it’s over
See, everything has changed
And all this hatred may just make me strong enough
To walk away

Well, they may chase me to the ends of the earth
But I’ve got you babe
And they may strip me of the things that I’ve worked for
But I’ve had my say, babe

So hear me now
I’ve enough of these chains
I know they’re of my making
No one else to blame for where I stand today
I’ve no memory of truth
But suddenly the audience is so cruel
So God, hey God you know why I’m through

Through

I guess it’s tough, I guess I’m older
And everything must change
But all this cruelty and money instead of love
People, have we no shame?

They may chase me to the ends of the earth
But I’ve got you babe
And they may take away the things that I’ve worked for
But you’ll pull me through, babe

It’s so clear to me now
I’ve enough of these chains
Life is there for the taking
What kind of fool would remain in this, in this cheap gilded cage
I’ve no memory of truth
But suddenly the audience is so cruel
Oh God, I’m sorry

I think I’m through
I think I’m through
I think I, I know I
I’m through

George Michael – Jesus To A Child (Older Album)

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 you 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 – Fastlove (Older Album)

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 details, 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 fast love
If that’s love in your eyes, it’s more than enough
Had some bad love
Some fast love, is all that I’ve got on my mind

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
But I just want to 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 fast love
If that’s love in your eyes, it’s more than enough
Had some bad love
Some fast love, is all that I’ve got on my mind

So close I can taste it now baby, so close

In the absence of security, I made my way into the night
Stupid Cupid keeps on calling me
And I see lovin’ 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

George Michael – Older (Older Album)

I should have known
It seemed too easy
You were there
And I was breathing blue

Strange
Don’t you think I’m looking older?
But something good has happened to me
Change is a stranger
You have yet to know

Well you’re out of time
I’m letting go
You’ll be fine
Well that much I know
You’re out of time
I’m letting go
I’m not the man you want

I should have known
It seemed so easy
You were there
I thought I needed you

Strange
Don’t you think I’m looking older?
But something good has happened to me
Change is a strange
Who never seems to show

Well you’re out of time
I’m letting go
You’ll be fine
(or maybe you won’t)
You’re out of time
I’m letting go

I’m not the man that you want

I never should hove looked back in your direction
I know that
Just the same old fights again, baby
These are wasted days without affection
I’m not that foolish anymore

George Michael – Spinning The Weel (Older Album)

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…

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
(Return to top)

George Michael – It Doesn’t Really Matter (Older Album)

It doesn’t really matter that I loved you
How many reasons call
It doesn’t really matter at all
It doesn’t really matter that I failed to
Break down your father’s wall
It doesn’t really matter at all

Why tell me you don’t understand when you do
I thought I had something to say

But it doesn’t really matter at all…
I changed my name to be rid of the things that I want from you
It’s strange but the name is a name and the truth is a truth

Oh, there is always, always someone there to remind me
So I learn to live with shame
I tell myself I feel no pain
But I do and if I have to tell you

Then it doesn’t really matter at all…
And it’s no good looking back
Because time is a thief and I believe that I’m too old for that
We’re just saying the things that we have said forever

It doesn’t really matter that I loved you
How many reasons fall
It’s too bad
It really doesn’t matter at all

George Michael – The Strangest Thing (Older Album)

Take my life
Time has been twisting the knife
I don’t recognize
People I care for

Take my dreams
Childish and weak at the seams
Please don’t analyze
Please just be there for me

The things that I know
Nobody told me
The seeds that are sown
They still control me

There’s a liar in my head
There’s a thief upon my bed
And the strangest thing
Is I cannot get my eyes open

Take my hand
Lead me to some peaceful land
That I cannot find
Inside my head

Wake me, with love
It’s all I need
But in all this time
Still no one said

If I had not asked
Would you have told me
If you call this love
Why don’t you hold me?

There’s a liar in my head
There’s a thief upon my bed
And the strangest thing
Is I cannot get my eyes open

Give me something I can hold
Give me something to believe in
I am frightened for my soul, please, please
Make love to me, send love through me

Heal me with your crime
The only one who ever knew me
We’ve wasted so much time
So much time

George Michael – To Be Forgiven (Older Album)

I’m going down
Won’t you help me
Save me from myself
I hear the sound of the memory
Maybe time will tell

Suddenly my life is like a river
Taking me places I don’t want to go
But like all good men who swim too well
It takes all that I have just to cry for help
Then that voice in my head tells me no

I’m going down
Won’t you help me
Save me from myself
I hear the sound of the memory
Maybe, who can tell ?

Let me live my life beside the river
Take me to places where a child can grow
And then maybe the boy inside will forsake me
Maybe the child in me will just let me go

I’m going down
The cold, cold water is rushing in
I’m going down
And I would beg to be forgiven

If I knew my sin

George Michael – Move On (Older Album)

I’ve been in and out of favor with lady luck
I gotta tell you
I’ve seen things I never wanted to see
I’ve got to get back on my feet
I feel like I’ve been sleeping
Sweet, sweet time
Has been a real good friend of mine

Waiting for that change of season
Oh the winter’s been so long
Searching for that rhyme or reason
You’ve just got to

[Chorus]
Move on
Hold it together, move on
Life’s so short, move on
Only time will set you free
You put your tears behind you
Better get yourself where you want to be
I think of all the days and nights I spent crying
And I move on

I’ve been in and out of favor with love
Because I gotta tell you
I’ve been things I never wanted to be
And then some angel called me up
He told me I was sleeping
Said "don’t waste time ’cause even angels say goodbye"

Waiting for that change of season
Oh the winter’s been so long
Searching for that rhyme or reason
You’ve just got to

[Chorus]
Move on
Hold it together, move on
Life’s so short, move on
Only time will set you free
You put your tears behind you
Better get yourself where you want to be
I think of all the days and nights I spent crying
And I move on

And oh, there goes another season
Getting hard to find a decent sonng to play
But oh, I guess I got my reasons
Everybody thinks I’m doing a.o.k
They ought to know by now

[Chorus]
Move on
Hold it together, move on
Life’s so short, move on
Only time will set you free
You put your tears behind you
Better get yourself where you want to be
I think of all the days and nights I spent crying
And I move on

I’m gonna be luck in love someday

George Michael – Star People (Older Album)

Star people
Counting your money till you 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 seem to 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 safe with me
Just look at all 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

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 a star?
Is that what makes a star?
Nothing comes for 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 – You Have Been Loved (Older Album)

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 loved 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 arms
It’s a cruel world
We’ve so much 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

For what’s the use in 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
Don’t think that God is dead
Take care my love, he said

You have been loved

George Michael – Free (Older Album)

Freedom ’90
George Michael

I won’t let you down
I will not give you up
Gotta have some faith in the sound
It’s the one good thing that I’ve got
I won’t let you down
So please don’t give me up
Because I would really, really love to stick around

Heaven knows I was just a young boy
Didn’t know what I wanted to be
I was every little hungry schoolgirl’s pride and joy
And I guess it was enough for me
To win the race? A prettier face!
Brand new clothes and a big fat place
On your rock and roll TV
But today the way I play the game is not the same
No way
Think I’m gonna get me some happy

I think there’s something you should know
I think it’s time I told you so
There’s something deep inside of me
There’s someone else I’ve got to be
Take back your picture in a frame
Take back your singing in the rain
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes do not make the man

All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don’t belong to you
And you don’t belong to me
Freedom
You’ve gotta give for what you take
Freedom
You’ve gotta give for what you take

Heaven knows we sure had some fun boy
What a kick just a buddy and me
We had every big shot good-time band on the run boy
We were living in a fantasy
We won the race
Got out of the place
I went back home got a brand new face
For the boys on MTV
But today the way I play the game has got to change
Oh yeah
Now I’m gonna get myself happy

I think there’s something you should know
I think it’s time I stopped the show
There’s something deep inside of me
There’s someone I forgot to be
Take back your picture in a frame
Don’t think that I’ll be back again
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes do not make the man

All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don’t belong to you
And you don’t belong to me
Freedom
You’ve gotta give for what you take
Freedom
You’ve gotta give for what you take

Well it looks like the road to heaven
But it feels like the road to hell
When I knew which side my bread was buttered
I took the knife as well
Posing for another picture
Everybody’s got to sell
But when you shake your ass
They notice fast
And some mistakes were built to last

That’s what you get

I say that’s what you get

That’s what you get for changing your mind

And after all this time
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes
Do not make the man

I’ll hold on to my freedom
May not be what you want from me
Just the way it’s got to be
Lose the face now
I’ve got to live

George Michael – Praying For Time (Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 Album)

Do you think we have time?
Do you think we have time?

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 taking our chance to say
I sang twenty years and a day
But nothing changed
The human race found some other guy
And walked into the flame

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 late
Well maybe we should all be praying for time

Doo oh oh
Do you think we have time?
Do you
Do you think we have time?

These are the days of the empty hand
Oh, you hold on to what you can
And charity, 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
I sang twenty years and a day
‘Cause nothing changed
The human race found some other guy
And walked into the flames

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

Doo doo doo
Do you think we have time?
Do you
Do you think we have time?
Lord, give us time

George Michael – They Won’t Go When I Go (Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 Album)

No more lying friends
Wanting tragic ends
Though they do pretend
They won’t go when I go

All those bleeding hearts
With sorrows to impart
Were right here from the start
And they won’t go when I go

And I’ll go where I’ve longed
To go so long
Away from tears

Gone from painful cries
Away from saddened eyes
Along with them I’ll bide
Because they won’t go when I go

Big men feeling small
Weak ones standing tall
I will watch them fall
They won’t go when I go

And I’ll go where I’ve long
To go so long
Away from tears

Unclean minds mislead the pure
The innocent will leave for sure
For them there is a resting place
People sinning just for fun
They will never see the sun
For they can never show their faces
There ain’t no room for the hopeless sinner
Who will take more then he will give
He ain’t hardly gonna give

The greed of man will be
Far away from me
And my soul will be free
They won’t go when I go

Since my soul conceived
All that I believe
The kingdom I will see
’cause they won’t go when I go

When I go
Where I’ll go
No one can keep me
From my destiny

George Michael – Something To Save (Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 Album)

If you’ve got something to say
Why don’t you say it
If you’ve got something to give
Why don’t you give it to me
Day after day I have to say it
We’re moving further from heaven
And closer to the deep blue sea

Cause I have no secrets from you
And I have nothing left to hide
And I’m open to all of your questions
Why can’t you reach inside
Like I have
Like I have for you

And all these games that you play
Don’t tell me how a man should be
Some would say if you knew
You wouldn’t be here with me
I Love you
I still love you
But I guess it’s time to let you be

Cause I have no secrets from you
And I have nothing left to hide
and I’m so tired of all these questions
Cause maybe you just changed your mind
Like I have
Like I have
Like I have
Like I have

When I was at your doorstep
You told me to look around
Said come in
You and your heart sit down
But you better watch your step
Cause your not far from the ground
And one fine day this all falls down
Like I have
Like I have

If you got something to say
Why don’t you say it
If you’ve got something to give
Why don’t you give it to me
Day after day I have to say it
If we’ve got something to save
Why don’t we save it

George Michael – Cowboys And Angels (Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 Album)

When your heart’s in someone else’s hands
Monkey see and monkey do
Their wish is your command
You’re not to blame
Everyone’s the same

All you do is love and love is all you do
I should know by now the way I fought for you
You’re not to blame
Everyone’s the same

I know you think that you’re safe mister
Harmless deception
That keeps love at bay
It’s the ones who resist that we most want to kiss
Wouldn’t you say’
Cowboys and angels
They all have the time for you
Why should I imagine that I’d be a find for you
Why should I imagine
That I’d have something to say

But that scar on your face
That beautiful face of yours
In your heart there’s a trace of someone before

When your hearts in someone else’s plans
Things you say and things you do
They don’t understand
It’s such a shame
Always ends the same

You can call it love but I don’t think it’s true
You should know by now
I’m not the boy for you
You’re not to blame
Always ends the same

I know you think that you’re safe sister
Harmless affection
That keeps things this way
It’s the ones who persist for the sake of a kiss
Who will pay
Cowboys and angels
They all take a shine to you
Why should I imagine that I was designed for you
Why should I believe
That you would stay

But that scar on your face
That beautiful face of yours
Don’t you think that I know
They’ve hurt you before

Take this man to your bed
Maybe his hands will help you forget
Please be stronger than your past
The future may still give you a chance

George Michael – Waiting For That Day (Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 Album)

So every day I see you in some other face
They crack a smile, talk a while
Try to take your place
My memory serves me far too well

I just sit here on this mountain thinking to myself
You’re a fool boy
Why don’t you go down
Find somebody
Find somebody else
My memory serves me far too well

It’s not as though we just broke up
It’s not as though it was yesterday
But something I just can’t explain
Something in me needs this pain
I know I’ll never see your face again

C’mon now
I’ve got to be strong now

Now everybody’s talking about this new decade
Like you say the magic numbers
Then just say goodbye to
The stupid mistakes you made
Oh my memory serves me far too well

Don’t you know that
The years will come and go
Some of us will change our lives
Some of us still have nothing to show
Nothing baby
But memories

And if these wounds
They are self-inflicted
I don’t really know
How my poor heart could have protected me
But if I have to carry this pain
If you will not share the blame
I deserve to see your face again

C’mon now
You don’t have to be so strong now
Come back

Come back to me darling
I will make it worth your while
Come back to your baby
I miss your kiss
I miss your smile
Seems to me the peace I search to find
Ain’t going to be mine until you say you will
Don’t you keep me waiting for that day
I know, I know, I know
You hear these words that I say

You can’t always get what you want.

George Michael – Mothers Pride (Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 Album)

Oh she knows
She takes his hand
And prays the child will understand
At the door they watch the men go by
In the clothes that daddy wore

Mother’s pride
Baby boy
His fathers eyes
He’s a soldier waiting for war
Time will come
He’ll hold a gun
His father’s son

And as he grows
He hears the band
Takes the step from boy to man
And at the shore she waves her son goodbye
Like the man she did before

Mother’s pride
Just a boy
His country’s eyes
He’s a soldier waving at the shore
And in her heart the time has come
To lose a son

And all the husbands, all the sons, all the lovers gone
They make no difference
No difference in the end
Still hear the woman say your father died a hero
In the name of God and man

Mother’s pride
Crazy boy
His lifeless eyes
He’s a soldier now forevermore
He’ll hold a gun ’till kingdom come

George Michael – Heal The Pain (Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 Album)

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
