Barry Manilow – Careless Whisper lyrics

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

Should've known better

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 it's 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've 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

Should've known better
Than to cheat a friend
And waste this chance
That I've 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 noone's
Gonna 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've 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
(Now that you're gone)
What I did's so wrong
That you had
To leave me alone
