Wham! – Last Christmas lyrics

[Chorus:]
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,
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.

[Chorus:]
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.

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, ooh-hoo.
Now I've found a real love, you'll never fool me again.

[Chorus:]
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.

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart (I gave you my heart)
A man under cover but you tore him apart
Maybe next year I'll give it to someone
I'll give it to someone special.

Special...
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.

    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.

    I love that song! I heard this song on the radio this morning and my mom and I just started sing it. It is so addictive. I have it stuck in my head now. Last christmas I gave you my heart. Ps my b-day is on christmas and I turn 12, yay (btw, I think it is talking about an ex boyfriend that still loves his girlfriend even though she cheated on 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.

    This song is such a great song. Its about a person getting their heartbroken by someone that they really were deeply in love with
    the person could have lead them on or cheated on them and broken up with them
    the person is saying 'this year to save me from tears, i'll give it to someone special' the person is going to make sure she knows she can trust the person and that the person is worthy of their love and acctually feels the same way.
    But the person is also saying that they loved the person so much that if the person tried to get back together with her she would probably give into that person even though she doesn't want to.
