Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance
But you still catch my eye
Tell me baby
Do you recognize me?
Well
If it's been a year
It doesn't surprise me
"Merry Christmas"
I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying "I love you"
I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now
I know you'd fool me again

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Ooooo
Oh oh baby

A crowded room
Friends with tired eyes
I'm hiding from you
And your soul of ice
My god I thought you were
Someone to rely on
Me?
I guess I was a shoulder to cry on

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man under cover but you tore me apart
Oh oh
Now I've found a real love you'll never fool me again

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year
To save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

SPECIALLLLLL

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart ( Gave you my heart)
A man under cover but you tore me apart
Next year I'll give it to someone
I'll give it to someone special.
Special
Someone someone
I'll give it to someone,I'll give it to someone special
Who'll give something in return
I'll give it to someone
Hold my heart and watch it burn
I'll give me to someone,I'll give it to someone special
I've got you here to stay
I can love you for a day
I thought you were someone special
Gave you my heart
I'll give it to someone,I'll give it to someone
Last christmas i gave you my heart
You gave it away
I'll give it to someone,I'll give it to someone

    Last christmas by george michael is amazing! The protagonist in this song has finally found his true love and won't make the mistake he made the year before. The melody by itself is an amazing piece of music and makes you feel really happy whereas once you know the lyrics it becomes quite depressing but doesn't make it feel any less uplifting. It's actually quite romantic and the protagonist actually had the courage to say (or write) I love you and it gives a really nice tone to the song. The rhyme and rhythm in the song is wonderful with lots of 'a' sounds in away and gave. The real point is 'now I found a real love you'll never fool me again'. Just my thoughts.

    I think it's about a couple or a pair of friends who don't see each other for a year nut when they finally see each other again, the girl is pretending nothing ever happened.
    Well that's my theory, I suppose it has a special meaning for each person who listens to or sings this song. Wish I could ask the songwritor what he ws thinking when he wrote that lyrics.

    We met when we were just children, and I gave him my heart. He told me we would be together after college, but he fooled me, left me, and that was 40 yrs ago when we were teenagers. That last christmas, he told me he would call me, but he just disappeared from my life with no explanation. He showed up on fb one day, sent me a message. He'll fool me again, and I know the end of this. He'll leave. I should have saved myself the tears, known better, but I love him.

    It means about giving and appreciating what you are given instead of just looking at it and throwing it away so this person was given a heart to love and look after but the person just gave it away and the other person decided next year ill give it to someone who cares. In other words there is a meaning to this appreciate what you are given look after it and love it as if you don't care it hurts someones feelings as they put effort into it.

    The meaning is its a beautiful song of a guy who is singing that he gave his whole heart to a girl in christmas. The next christmas he was not going to cry for the same girl so, he is going to find a new girl on christmas. But he dosen't want to make the same mistake as he did last time because he thought she was the best but instead she gave his heart away the very next day.
