Radio 54, side B, track 2: “Faith” by George Michael, #34 on The Top 90 of the ’80s

Faith - George MichaelOh, George Michael, I’m having a “Say Say Say” moment, and I’ve already recorded this song a couple of times (in fact, the last time I recorded this song, it was the previous year on “The Top 88 of ’88”), so I’m just going to say that I wholeheartedly agree that this one made it on to the countdown and leave it at that.  But I have faith I’ll have more to write about next time one of your songs shows up on here.  See what I did there?

“Faith”

Well, I guess it would be nice

If I could touch your body
I know not everybody
Has got a body like you

Oh, but I gotta think twice

Before I give my heart away
And I know all the games ya play
Because I play them, too

Oh, but I
Need some time off
From that emotion
Time ta pick my heart up off the floor

Oh, when that love comes down with
Out devotion
Well, it takes a strong man, baby, but I’m showin’ you the door

‘Cause I gotta have faith

I gotta have faith
Because I got ta have faith, faith
I got ta have faith, faith, faith-ah!

Baby

I know you’re askin’ me ta stay
Say please, please, please don’t go away
Ya say I’m givin’ you the blues

Maybe
Huh. You mean
Every word ya say
Can’t help but think of yesterday
And another who tied me down to loverboy rules
Before this river
Becomes an ocean
Before ya throw my heart back on the floor

Oh oh baby, I’ll reconsider
My foolish notion
Well, I need someone to hold me but I’ll
Wait for somethin’ more

Yes, I gotta have faith
Mm, I gotta have faith
Because I’ve gotta have faith, faith, faith
I gotta have faith, faith, faith-ah!

Ah!
Dit do dit do dit
Dit do dit do dit
Dit do dit dum do
I’ll just have to wait
Because I got ta have faith

I gotta have faith

Got ta, got ta, got ta have faith

Before this river
Becomes an ocean
Before ya throw my heart back on the floor (I’ve just got ta have faith)
Oh, oh baby, I’ll reconsider
My foolish notion
Well, I need someone to hold me but I’ll wait for somethin’ more

‘Cause I gotta have faith
Mmm, I gotta have faith
Because I’ve gotta have faith, faith, faith
I gotta have faith, faith, faith-ah!
