"Last Christmas" as written by and George Michael....
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 kiss 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

A crowded room and friends with tired eyes
I'm hiding from you and your soul of eyes
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 girl on a cover but you tore her apart
Maybe this year
Maybe this year I'll give it to someone special

'Cause 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

And last Christmas
And this year
It won't be anything like, anything like

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

    General Commentwhen she says, "Merry Christmas, I wrapped it up and sent it" it makes me think that she was giving him her 'heart' again.

    General Commenti love this song. and i have heard it from 4 ppl her , the original one, carrie underwood, and ashley tisdale, (i like all of them) this song means soo much to me. i love songs like these. where he broke her heart and she fell for a guy that didnt whole heartedly fall for her so she got broken and she knows i m not gonna make that same mistake twice. it means a lot to me when a song says that they are not gonna let their heart get broken a second time. cuz its practically my theme song.

    My OpinionWhy does this song have to be sad? LOL. I was looking for a happy song like this during Christmas, and this is what I thought up:

    Last Christmas I was singing the blues
    ‘cause I had no one to give my heart to.
    This year I’ll be saved from tears
    ‘cause I’ll give it to someone special.

    Once smitten and twice shy,
    I keep my distance,
    But you still catch my eye.
    Tell me, baby, do you recognize me?
    Well, we’ve never talked,
    it doesn’t surprise me.
    Merry Christmas, I wrap it up and send it
    With a note saying, “I love you”–
    I mean it!
    Now I know how in love I am,
    ‘cause if you kissed me now,
    I know I’d fall again.

    Last Christmas I was singing the blues
    ‘cause I had no one to give my heart to.
    This year I’ll be saved from tears
    ‘cause I’ll give it to someone special.
    Last Christmas I was singing the blues
    ‘cause I had no one to give my heart to.
    This year I’ll be saved from tears
    ‘cause I’ll give it to someone special.

    A crowded room and friends with laughing eyes,
    I’m hiding from you and your gorgeous smile.
    My God, tonight you look so handsome.
    Me? I don’t feel very special.
    A face on a lover with a fire in his heart;
    A girl undercover ‘cause I’m falling apart.
    Maybe this year, maybe this year,
    I’ll give it to someone special.

    Last Christmas I was singing the blues
    ‘cause I had no one to give my heart to.
    This year I’ll be saved from tears
    ‘cause I’ll give it to someone special.
    Last Christmas…
    And this year… won’t be anything like,
    anything like…
    Last Christmas I was singing the blues
    ‘cause I had no one to give my heart to.
    This year I’ll be saved from tears
    ‘cause I’ll give it to someone special.
    Last Christmas I was singing the blues
    ‘cause I had no one to give my heart to.
    This year I’ll be saved from tears
    ‘cause I’ll give it to someone special.

    General CommentIn this kind of situation, people should help each other, at least some people are doing something about the poverty. Since the recession began, more people are looking into debt relief. Debt relief is allotting more money to paying debt, so that persons' debt loan decreases and more of their income can be used for savings or things like retirement and so forth. The best way to get on that is to cut down on other expenditures — like cutting back on digital services. Do you even watch all 300 channels? (No one does.) Clipping coupons at grocery stores is another good one, and cutting back on the fast food and cooking more often not only will save you money, it's healthier for you. Getting a little debt relief could mean a little personalmoneystore.com/personal-loans/secured-loans/guaranteed-loans/ ">guaranteed loans in your pocket.
