George Michael – Desafinado lyrics

If you say my singing is off key, my love
You would hurt my feelings, don't you see, my love?
I wish I had an ear like yours,
A voice that would behave
All I have is feeling
And the voice god gave

You insist my music goes against the rules
Yes, but rules were never made for lovesick fools
I wrote this song for you
But you don't care
It's a crooked song, ah,
But my heart is there

The thing that you would see if you would play the part
Is even if I'm out of tune I have a gentle heart
I took your picture with my trusty rolliflex
And now all I have developed is complex

Possibly in vain, I hope you weaken, oh my love
And forget those rigid rules that undermine my dream of
A life of love and music with someone who'll understand

That even though I may be out of tune when I attempt to say
How much I love you
And all that matters is the message that I bring,
Which is: my dear one, I love you
