George Michael — Waiting For That Day/you Can't Always Get What You Want lyrics

Now every day I see you in some other face
They crack a smile, talk a while
Try to take your place
My memory serves me far too well

I just sit here on this mountain
Thinking to myself
Youre a fool boy
Why dont you go down
Find somebody
Find somebody else
My memory serves me far too well

Its not as though we just broke up
Its not as though it was yesterday
But something I just cant explain
Something in me needs this pain
I know Ill never see your face again

Cmon now
Ive got to be strong now

Now everybodys talking about this
New decade
Like you say the magic numbers
Then just say goodbye to
The stupid mistakes you made
Oh my memory serves me far too well

Dont you know that
The years will come and go
Some of us will change their lives
Some of us still have nothing to show
Nothing baby
But memories

And if these wounds
They are self inflicted
I dont really know
How my poor heart could have
Protected me
But if I have to carry this pain
If you will not share the blame
I deserve to see your face again

Cmon now
You dont have to be strong now
Come back

Come back to me darling
I will make it worth your while
Come on back to your baby
I miss your kiss
I miss your smile
Seems to me the peace I search to find
Aint gonna be mine
Until you say you will
Dont you keep me waiting for that day
I know
You hear these words that I say

You cant always get what you want
