GEORGE MICHAEL - Precious Box

In my house thereís a circle, where the life comes in
From the stars to my home, down through the stone, 
I could have been so alone,
Without my precious box
Have I a family? I guess not
Iíve never seen a lot of beauty
In my life.

Well in your house there are servants, and the lights all dim
Such a beautiful home, your agentís on the phone, they never 
leave you alone
The party never stops!
You say thatís fantasy, I say ďSo what, I need a little beautyÖĒ

So let me in, 
You know youíve kind of got under my skin
You know we never see a lot of the action round here
My dear
You may want to strip again

And you look so fine in your Gucci suit
And youíre making more money than your daddy 
could have imagined
But people can go out of fashion, honey, yeah, any time

So take that picture, stop acting so dumb
Donít you know that the moment will come
I will find someone like you
But with something extra, Iím sorry baby
I donít know why
I donít know why that is

The systematic breakdown of my community
You know I hate my job, I try to save but God
Thereís just never enough
Switch on, the pressure - stops
You know the one for me, sheís on Fox
And sheís a little beautyÖ

Give me your life, give me your life, I want it
Because lately, itís so freezing out here
(This side of the glass, life keeps kicking my ass)
In so many ways, but you make it good
Made me the kind of happy that my baby never could
(This side of the glassÖ)

So take that picture, stop acting so dumb
Donít you know that the moment will come
I will find someone like you
But with something extra, Iím so sorry baby
I donít know why
I donít know why that is

Precious keeps me company 
Keeps me from being alone

Because no-one comes in the morning
No-one comes in the evening time
Iíd sit and wait for the phone to ring
I could be waiting my whole damn life

So sick of the same old faces
In this street, where nobody talks to me
And the funny side of the situation is
I donít care, Iíll always be there

When you come down from the sky
And make yourself at home
In my house

Because these days itís the money the money
The money, honey, or your life
I said donít you know you canít have both

Stop acting so dumb
The moment will come
I will find someone like you
Something extra, (always happens baby to me) sorry baby
I donít know why (something)
Said I donít know why that is

You may want to strip again
You may want to let me in
You may want to sacrifice
More than you think is fair or right

You may want to think again
You may want to watch your friends
You may want to change your mind
You may wish you could turn back time.
