One More Try Lyrics - George Michael

Review The Song (9)

I've had enough of danger
And people on the streets
I'm looking out for angels
Just trying to find some peace
Now I think it's time
That you let me know
So if you love me
Say you love me
But if you don't just let me go...

'Cause teacher
There are things that I don't want to learn
And the last one I had
Made me cry
So I don't want to learn to
Hold you, touch you
Think that you're mine
Because it ain't no joy
For an uptown boy
Whose teacher has told him goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

When you were just a stranger
And I was at your feet
I didn't feel the danger
Now I feel the heat
That look in your eyes
Telling me no
So you think that you love me
Know that you need me
I wrote the song, I know it's wrong
Just let me go...

And teacher
There are things
That I don't want to learn
Oh the last one I had
Made me cry
So I don't want to learn to
Hold you, touch you
Think that you're mine
Because it ain't no joy
For an uptown boy
Whose teacher has told him goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

So when you say that you need me
That you'll never leave me
I know you're wrong, you're not that strong
Let me go

And teacher
There are things
That I still have to learn
But the one thing I have is my pride
Oh so I don't wanna learn to
Hold you, touch you
Think that you're mine
Because there ain't no joy
For an uptown boy
Who just isn't willing to try

I'm so cold
Maybe just one more try...

love it! | Reviewer: Ophilia | 10/12/12

This song really speaks of being heartbroken and frustrated by somoeone that you love that doesn't feel the same. Every one can relate, because everyone knows what it is like to feel something for someone at some point that is not reciprocated. It's just saying, "I have feelings for you, please notice and reciprocate. And if you don't, leave me alone and let me go." At the same time, a desperate part of yourself doesn't want to give up the love...or the hope. Cheers!

Read "The Dark Rose" by Erin Kelly, then listen to this song | Reviewer: Donna | 3/6/12

I just finished reading "The Dark Rose", then happened to catch this song on an ad channel on TV. Both made me cry. I see the person singing as a teenaged boy with his "teacher", not a school teacher, but a woman who is teaching him about love and sex. Both the book and the song are very haunting.

A magical song about heartache that one learns from and never forgets | Reviewer: Rev Roxanne Cottell | 12/23/11

I have always been a huge fan of GM. Because I am an Intuitive healer whose specialty is helping others understand their own heartaches, this song is very powerfully emotionally important, not only for me, but for my clients and the world in general. He is so in tune with his own soul that it is hard to believe that there is this much heart contained within one human being, but there is, and we are all quite a bit luckier that GM is part of our world. This is one of those songs that just hits a person right in the soul and one that explains quite well the decisions which must be made, which are presented to us and which, in the end, become just what we needed, even though at the time of our loss it may seem otherwise. I am so glad that I was able to download it. My Spiritual Guides lead me to certain music so as to gift the lyrics to my clients. The woman who received these particular lyrics cried when she'd received them because they gave her a sense of not being alone, a sense that someone else on the planet has gone through the same emotions that she feels right now. I could never imagine what it would be like to walk in on my sister in bed with my lover, but this is what happened, and she is healing nicely from the shock, even and all the way to forgiving her sister for such an indelible mark on the client's heart and soul...God Bless GM for this timeless classic! If I could hug him right now I would, because music is a large part of how I coach people, and this song made heartache that much easier for the woman to deal with...God Bless you, sir...wherever you are ...RevRKC

I personally think that this song is about him being gay. Which is perfectly ok! I think he means that he doesn't understand how he feels and he really doesn't want to because he's conflicted about his feelings.

One of the best songs ever written!!! | Reviewer: Sandile | 6/20/11

I can listen to this song a thousand times and it always has the same effect on me as if its the first time Im listening to it!! I must say that for me, this is one of the best songs ever written!!! The melody, lyrics, beat and the emotion of the song are all insync with each other. Well done GM on such a Fantastic song...

Not Many Songs Touch Me In A Special Way | Reviewer: Stacy | 4/23/11

One More Try is so beautiful, even though I had not heard it in quite some time, just listening to it again, almost brought me to tears. I literally had to fight to keep my composure! (My mom introduced this song to me right before she passed away & I used to sing it to her. She loved it!) This is a tender sweet song. One of the best ever recorded.

I read that he wrote this song about Pat Fernandes. Only he knows; maybe he will divulge whom this heavenly ballad is really about in his upcoming book. Then again, another interview suggested that this song was inspired by a love interest right before he settled down with Kathy Jeung. There have been many interviews about his heartbreak that happened before he disbanded WHAM. If that is the case; the timing is seriously extended because a heartbreak like that would have been over a year...and he said he wrote the song in one day. GM is no ordinary bear. His metaphysical agency is so on time. Who knows? He could have written this song about a one time deal which happened in one day for a song that will be about forever and ever. Some things are mysterious. I think this song was about a tragic mystery which he did not understand.

A great one by George | Reviewer: Chad | 1/2/10

This is a great slow song by George Michael packed with melody, harmony, and haunting lyrics that just get right down to the point.
"Either you love me or you don't." was what I got from it. When I broke up, I played this over and over because it was the closest thing to what I was going through. Even in better times, I still like to come back and listen to what was once a part of me.
