Level 42 - Guaranteed Lyrics

Don't play this game with me
you know you came to be my world
when times were bad enough
seems I was good enough
you run out my door
you come back, and beg for more and more
just like the times before
you'll always be

Guaranteed a place inside my heart
I would never forget a single thing
always be a martyr to your heart
then you'll never regret a single thing

You think I just don't care (just don't care)
the fact is, I could not bear (could not bear)
to lose this kind of loving touch (I love your touch)
would you be bothered much?
you had so much planned (so much planned)
so take time to understand (understand)
my reasons for pulling you back to me (back to me)
you'll always be

Guaranteed a place inside my heart
I would never forget a single thing
always be a martyr to your heart
then you'll never regret a single thing

You hide so many years
(hide away)
you cried so many tears
(cried away your tears)
you think I just don't realise
(now I realise)
one thing I've come to know
(if you stay)
this pain will surely go
(all the way with me)
so soon before your very eyes

Guaranteed a place inside my heart
I would never forget a single thing
always be a martyr to your heart
then you'll never regret a single thing

Guaranteed a place inside my heart
I would never forget a single thing
always be a martyr to your heart
then you'll never regret a single thing

Guaranteed ...

    Excellent song - the best bit is the middle eight, so melodic with the Mike Lindup vocals.

  7. Sharon Hirons

    I was an 80s girl, my favourite band of that decade was LEVEL 42, plus i had a big crush on MARK KING & they made great music, they deserved more credit than what they got, most of their songs should have gone 2 no.1.

  8. Skoti1974

    30 years and they are still honey for my ears and medicine on my soul. 🎼❤️

  9. Françoise Lesage

    At first i was sceptical . Then i looked up some photos of the Isle of Wight . They do have some awesome cliffs and rock formations near the coast . So good chance they did shoot some of this video on Level 42's home ground so to speak .

  16. Anon Frank

    1:14 and here and there in this video . Of course silhouettes can be quite nice but they are an overdone, cliche imo . The video director should have had supplemental lighting on the band balanced with the natural on location dusk sky in background . Not just to show the band members faces but to give that surreal wonderful balance of artificial light with sky light . my bona fides - nationally published photographer and art director , location finder , composed shots or views for cinematographers and videographers . I have retired early due to a disabling injury . Its not expensive to set up continuous artificial lighting on location . all you have to do is rent a gas driven electrical generator to plug the lights in . preferably also use light diffusers like photo studio white "umbrellas" or "soft boxes" or just shoot through large banner paper(make sure it is not to close to the hot lights) to point lights through or bounce the light off . lighting without diffusion causes ugly hard shadows . Its even easier for still photos with the much cooler modeling lights to show how the flash will look in final image . It may seem tricky at first to get the flash or continuous lighting not to be too dark or too light on the foreground, or two light or too dark background exposure . but its easy after practicing it .....etc


    Anon Frank Really..? You’re criticising, with in-depth precision, a music video from almost 30 years ago..?!

    Anon Frank

    @steviemusic1 they have been making films and later videos since the silent film era with fill in supplemental lighting on location .

  17. milan mernjik

    good song good video clip

  18. Anon Frank

    I haven't a true friend on earth, nor in heaven or hell

  19. Anon Frank

    Anyone with even just half a "heart" , could not dislike this song .

  20. dunboozin

    Love the phased drumming.

    Elvino Tomo

    So do I. The galloping beat is what I like the most.

  21. TheMailManNeverSmilesOn Tuesdays

    One of the Most underrated groups ever! Us who appreciate them get it. My guys deserve better than constantly being played at the grocery store! And they have a million other good songs other than something about you!

  22. joseph reese

    Back then we didn't had the technology but we had better music today we have the technology but what's coming out of our ear buds is nothing but crap.👎
