Michael, George - Waiting For That Day Lyrics

So 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
You're a fool, boy
Why don't you go down
Find somebody
Find somebody else
My memory serves me far too well

It's not as though we just broke up
It's not as though it was yesterday
But something I just can't explain
Something in me needs this pain
I know I'll never see your face again

C'mon now
I've got to be strong now

Now everybody's talking about this new decade
Like you say the magic number
Then just say goodbye to
The stupid mistakes you made
Oh, my memory serves me far too well

Don't you know that
The years will come and go
Some of us will change our lives
Some of us still have nothing to show
Nothing, baby
But memories

And if these wounds
They are self-inflicted
I don't 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

C'mon now
You don't have to be so 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
Ain't gonna be mine until you say you will
Don't you keep me waiting for that day
I know
You hear these words that I say
I know
You can't always get what you want...

    Voice and Soul of an Angel. Only a deeply sensitive and spiritual being can write the lyrics that you did YOG. As for that immaculately velvety voice.......pure perfection. Thank you for giving us your entire heart and soul through your music. R.I.P. sweet Angel. You are finally at peace. 😢🙏😢

    pure classic choon xx

  62. Peter Sutherland

    That’s a song of my youth .... love it .

  63. Nina Nedeva

    While I can get the reasoning behind the idea of not making a video for most of the songs on Listen Without Prejudice vol.1, I do wonder what the video for this song might have been every time I listen to it. Its probably one of his best and one of his most underrated songs...

  64. Nikki Banderas

    You can't always get what you want... RIP George Michael :(

  65. Mooncat

    Much love and peace, George. We went through so much together. Legend.

    Still the best ‘voice’ of the last 30yrs or so!!
    you sing ‘live’ and think you did well!!!
    The George-Michael rocks-up, and, you Quickly realise, you were SHIT!!....

  74. neoaureus

    My memories serve me far too well....George George...how much you held inside and how much you let all of us in....my god. How powerful this is ....sometimes you cannot hear something because it shows how life is so so fleeting...and time is the greatest illusion ever that God played on us....

    the years will come and go ....

    nothing but memories.....

  75. Lexv6

    Love him to the moon and back sooo heart broken

  76. AJ Seeber

    When I was in University this was the only album I would play when studying.  The combination of rock and jazz was so relaxing.  It's not high art but it is sure easy on the ears.

  77. potatochip

    I can't believe he's gone, but I hope if there is a heaven, that he is there with him mum, Anselmo, and his doggies that have passed. He was a genius <3

    Don Mcewan
