Chorus 

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart 

But the very next day you gave it away 

This year, to save me from tears 

I'll give it to someone special 

Chorus 

 

[D]  
[Bm]  
[Em]  
[A]  

Once bitten and twice shy 

I keep my distance but you still catch my eye 

Tell me, baby. Do you recognize me? 

Well, it's been a year it doesn't surprise me 

(Merry Christmas!) I wrapped it up and sent it 

With a note saying, "I love you" I meant it 

Now, I know what a fool I've been 

But if you kissed me now 

I know you'd fool me again 

Chorus x 2 

 

[D]  
[Bm]  
[Em]  
[A]  

 

A crowded room, friends with tired eyes 

I'm hiding from you, and your soul of ice 

My god, I thought you were someone to rely on 

Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on 

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart 

A man under cover but you tore me apart 

Now, I've found a real love 

you'll never fool me again 

Chorus x 2 

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart 

A man under cover but you tore me apart 

Maybe next year I'll give it to someone 

I'll give it to someone special
