Chords & Lyrics

[Intro]

C  Am  Dm  G

[Chorus] (x2)

 
C 
Last Christmas I gave you my heart
 
Am 
But the very next day you gave it away
 
Dm 
This year, to save me from tears
 
G 
I’ll give it to someone special

 

Break

C  Am  Dm  G

 

Verse 1

 
C 
Once bitten and twice shy
 
Am 
I keep my distance but you still catch my eye
 
Dm 
Tell me baby, do you recognise me?
 
G 
Well, it’s been a year, it doesn’t surprise me

 

Verse 2

 
C 
(Merry Christmas) I wrapped it up and sent it
 
Am 
With a note saying “I love you”, I meant it
 
Dm 
Now I know what a fool I’ve been
 
G 
But if you kissed me now I know you’d fool me again

 

Chorus (x2)

 
C 
Last Christmas I gave you my heart
 
Am 
But the very next day you gave it away
 
Dm 
This year, to save me from tears
 
G 
I’ll give it to someone special

 

Verse 3

 
C 
A crowded room, friends with tired eyes
 
Am 
I’m hiding from you and your soul of ice
 
Dm 
My God, I thought you were someone to rely on
 
G 
Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on

 

Verse 4

 
C 
A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
 
Am 
A man under cover but you tore me apart
 
Dm 
Now I’ve found a real love (now I’ve found)
 
G 
You’ll never fool me again

 

Chorus (x2)

 
C 
Last Christmas I gave you my heart
 
Am 
But the very next day you gave it away
 
Dm 
This year, to save me from tears
 
G 
I’ll give it to someone special

 

Outro

 
C 
A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
 
Am 
A man under cover but you tore him apart
 
Dm 
Maybe next year I’ll give it to someone
 
G 
I’ll give it to someone special
