Carpenters Guess I Just Lost My Head Lyrics

Last updated: 01/08/2008 10:00:00 AM

I really don't mean to stare

I was only trying to memorize you there

You know I meant no harm

It's just that the starlight in your eye

Gave me a chill, nearly made me cry

I'm sure it's very clear



(*) I don't know what's goin' down

You're gonna ruin this poor girl from out of town

I like the way you move so much that



(**) I guess I just lost my head

I know we should really know much better

I guess I just lost my head

I know we don't really know each other

So pardon the things I said

Won't you tell me you'll forgive me



I don't mean to intrude

It's just that I don't want to break this mood

(Don't want to break this mood here tonight)

And if I hold your hand it's just 'cause

There's something in the things you say

That wraps me up and really puts me away

But everybody knows



Repeat (*)

Repeat (**)

Repeat (*)



I guess I just lost my head

I know we should really know much better

I guess I just lost my head

(I've got the feeling inside)

I know we don't really know each other

(And I love you)

So pardon the things I said

(I need your loving tonight)

Won't you tell me you'll forgive me



Guess I lost it

Guess I lost it

I guess I just lost my head

(Cause you've been making me crazy)

I know we should really know much better

I guess I just lost my head

I know we don't really know each other

So pardon the things I said

Won't you tell me you'll forgive me

Outstanidng smooth jazz tune | Reviewer: Rick Henry | 1/8/2008

Karen Carpenter's solo album was just as good as anything she did with Carpenters. Most of the song's arrangements were done by the talented jazz musician Bob James and Rod Temperton (from the funk band Heatwave). Her solo album was primarily smooth jazz with hints of funk rhythms in the background.

In "Guess I Just Lost My Head" Karen gives a stellar vocal performance which focuses on being upbeat and somewhat playful. Karen was moving into a new musical direction which proved to be quite successful for her.
