Kissing a Fool (George Michael)

Last night’s George Michael concert reminded me how much I loved Kissing a Fool. It got me through many a broken heart…from failed relationships to things that could never be. If you are a hopeless romantic like me but have never heard of this song before, please take a moment to acquaint yourself with this gem.

Kissing a Fool

[link to guitar tab]

You are far
When I could have been your star
You listened to people
Who scared you to death, and from my heart
Strange that you were strong enough
To even make a start
But you’ll never find
Peace of mind
Till you listen to your heart

People
You can never change the way they feel
Better let them do just what they will
For they will
If you let them
Steal your heart from you

People
Will always make a lover feel a fool
But you knew I loved you
We could have shown them all
We should have seen love through

Fooled me with the tears in your eyes
Covered me with kisses and lies
So goodbye
But please don’t take my heart

You are far
I’m never gonna be your star
I’ll pick up the pieces
And mend my heart
Maybe I’ll be strong enough
I don’t know where to start
But I’ll never find
Peace of mind
While I listen to my heart

People
You can never change the way they feel
Better let them do just what they will
For they will
If you let them
Steal your heart

And people
Will always make a lover feel a fool
But you knew I loved you
We could have shown them all…

But remember this
Every other kiss
That you ever give
Long as we both live
When you need the hand of another man
One you really can surrender with
I will wait for you
Like I always do
There’s something there
That can’t compare with any other

You are far
When I could have been your star
You listened to people
Who scared you to death, and from my heart
Strange that I was wrong enough
To think you’d love me too
I guess you were kissing a fool

You must have
Been kissing
A fool…

  1. Yeah Karen.
    This is my favourite G.M. song also.
    It is so good that it is almost painfull to listen to. As a single, it never got the chart success that it deserved.
    I think though, that it may have been better if that hectic part at the end was left slower too.
    ( You know, that part where he starts ‘But remember this, every other kiss….’ ).

    Michael Buble’s version of this song sounds bland, compared to G.M.’s version. George has the voice.
    Glad you enjoyed the concert. I saw him in Europe. He didn’t sing this song there.
