[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
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 (whispered) Merry Christmas, I wrapped it up and sent it With a note saying "I love you" and meant it Now I know what a fool I've been But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again
A crowded room Friends with tired eyes I'm hiding from you And your soul of ice Oh my I thought you were Someone to rely on Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on A friend to discover with a fire in her heart A girl under cover but you tore me apart You tore me apart, ooo-ooo Now I've found a real love you'll never fool me again
A friend to discover with a fire in her heart A girl under cover but you tore me apart [Spoken] Maybe next year, I'll give it to someone I'll give it to someone special.
