Ben Folds – Careless Whisper lyrics
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 goodbyes

I'm never gonna dance again
Guilty feet, ain't got no rhythm
Though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool

I shoulda known better than to cheat a friend
And waste a chance that I've been given
So I'm never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you

Time can never heal
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 find

I'm never gonna dance again
Guilty feet, ain't got no rhythm
Though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool

I shoulda known better than to cheat a friend
And waste a chance that I've been given
So I'm never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you

Tonight the music seems so loud
I wish that we could lose this crowd
Baby, it's better this way
We hurt each other with the things we wanna say

We could have been so good together
We could have made this last forever
But now who's gonna dance with me?

I'm never gonna dance again
Guilty feet, ain't got no rhythm
Though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool

I shoulda known better than to cheat a friend
And waste a chance that I've been given
So I'm never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you
