I'd say love was a magical thing I'd say love would keep us from pain Had I been there Had I been there I would promise you all of my life But to lose you would cut like a knife So I don't dare No, I don't dare
'Cause I've never come close in all of these years You are the only one to stop my tears And I'm so scared I'm so scared
Take me back in time, maybe I can forget Turn a different corner and we never would have met Would you care?
Oh, I don't understand it for you it's a breeze Little by little, you've brought me to my knees Don't you care?
No, I've never come close in all of these years You are the only one to stop my tears I'm so scared of this love
And if all that there is Is this fear of being used I should go back to being lonely and confused If I could, I would, I swear

Vdivine from DcYour lyrics have errors. Too bad because the song is such a beautiful song. Can you please update them with the following: You have "I" line: "I would promise you my life." You say "hut" when it should be "but" to lose you would cut like a knife"
Markantney from BiloxeDec 16, To me his best song, with "I Can't Make You Love Me" a close 2nd. Great talent, RIP.
Ma from FloridaKeep in mind George often contradicts himself on the origin of his songs & his personal life since the 90s when he started being graphic about his sexuality. Reading a few of his interviews confirm this, plus his looney fans exaggerate things said from people who knew him. During Faith he said he'd been in 2 monogamous relationships including Kathy J.
Then in a gay mag (GT I think)he said the foll: Q: A Different Corner also seemed to be about a specific situation, you splitting up with someone... A: Oh yeah! It was actually my first true infatuation - it involved no proper sex, nothing. Think about how self-obsessed first love is. It was me going, "I'm ready to feel this now". The other person is almost incidental - they're the victim, really. I obsessed about this person for ages, and soon after I met him he said; "I don't want to be your boyfriend". Which was a very clever thing to say at the time.
Q:Why? A: Cause I was such a ----up. For a while I really felt sorry for myself, and in that period I wrote Different Corner. It wasn't even first love. It was; "I'm impatient to feel something, and I'll do it with this person".
SO contrary to claims on the Web, this wasn't about a real relationship. But during Older a gay mag quoted him as saying he couldn't be with someone because of his circumstances in the 80s. Except that he dated Kathy then? During Faith he said how depressed he was for a number of reasons. According to above quote he was lonely & latched on to a close male. He's also spoken about his insecurities about himself as a man & his father issues so this makes sense. It's the problems with almost all gay males.
Hard to say when GM isn't distorting the truth. Seems he went nuts during the 90s because of how his sexuality affected him. His life then until now is evidence of that and sad.
Rudy from Kowloon, Hong KongA different cornor, what a sad term! Everyone should faces this...Rudy
Tony Cook from London, United KingdomAbsolutly love/hate hate/love this song especialy in its 86 form, i know that its a love song but i atribute it to the loss of my father and hes father both of whom died the prevous year 85 my dad and i didnt get on in the last 2 years of hes life due quite a bit to my arogance being only 21 at the time youth was lost on me and he was dying of lung cancer, so this song for me helps me to come to terms but at the same time draws out the raw emotion of thoughs times wonderfull meaningfull lyrics well done george probly my no 5 favrote/dislikeable song .
Lance from Ingelheim, GermanyWhat a terribly wistful song, but a song that hits the inner core of someone (like myself) experiencing unrequited love and wondering if the pain of the break-up outweighs the joy of the good times forged through the relationship. Very pensive, very cathartic, very very sad and true :(
Holland-Dozier-Holland originally wrote "Where Did Our Love Go" with The Marvelettes in mind, but they turned it down. Marvelettes lead singer Gladys Horton sang in a lower key than Diana Ross, so when The Supremes came to record the tune, Ross was forced to sing in a lower, breathier style than she was used to.
Meghan Trainor and her producer Kevin Kadish originally wrote "All About That Bass" for another artist to record. However, after Epic Records boss LA Reid heard Meghan play a demo of the song on a ukulele, he signed the young songwriter to his label and told her she should sing it.
