George Michael — Desafinado lyrics

If you say my singing is off key, my love
You would hurt my feelings, don't you see, my love ?
I wish i had an ear like yours,
A voice that would behave
All i have is feeling
And the voice god gave

You insist my music goes against the rules
Yes, but rules were never made for lovesick fools
I wrote this song for you
But you don't care
It's a crooked song, ah,
But my heart is there

The thing that you would see if you would play the part
Is even if i'm out of tune i have a gentle heart
I took your picture with my trusty rolliflex
And now all i have developed is complex

Possibly in vain, i hope you weaken, oh my love
And forget those rigid rules that undermine my dream of
A life of love and music with someone who'll understand

That even though i may be out of tune when i attempt to say
How much i love you
And all that matters is the message that i bring,
Which is: my dear one, i love you
