  • I don't need to fall at your feet
    Just 'cause you cut me to the bone
    And I won't miss the way that you kiss me
    We were never carved in stone
    If I don't listen to the talk of the town
    Then maybe I can fool myself

    I'll get over you I know I will
    I'll pretend my ship's not sinking
    And I'll tell myself I'm over you
    'Cause I'm the king of wishful thinking
    I am the king of wishful thinking

    I refuse to give in to my blues
    That's not how it's going to be
    And I deny the tears in my eyes
    'Cause I don't want to let you see no
    That you have made a hole in my heart
    And now I've got to fool myself

    I'll get over you I know I will
    I'll pretend my ship's not sinking
    And I'll tell myself I'm over you
    'Cause I'm the king of wishful thinking (I'll get over you I know I will)
    I'll pretend my ship's not sinking
    And I'll tell myself I'm over you
    'Cause I'm the king of wishful thinking (king of wishful thinking)

    I will never, never shed a tear for you
    I'll get over you (I know I will)

    If I don't listen to the talk of the town
    Then maybe I can fool myself

    I'll get over you I know I will
    I'll pretend my ship's not sinking
    And I'll tell myself I'm over you
    'Cause I'm the king of wishful thinking
    I'm the king of wishful thinking

    I'll get over you I know I will
    You made a hole in my heart
    But I won't shed a tear for you
    I'll be the king of wishful thinking
    I'll get over you (I know I will)
    I'll pretend my heart's still beating
    'Cause I've got no more tears for you
    I'm the king of wishful thinking
    I'll get over you (I know I will)
    You made a hole in my heart
    And I'll tell myself I'm over you

  • Victoria Semenenko George Michael's Baby from Ukraine"The song doesn't make much sense in context of the film, but it had a fresh sound that helped carry its scene and boost sales of the soundtrack (which also featured the Roxette hit "It Must Have Been Love") to over three million." Actually that is so only for those who never got that actually the story before was about the fact of George true betrayal of me as dating with my enemie as that asian s--t who finally accused me as 12 years kid of "being simply malicious and didn't let her marry George" but especially threatening me with a knife for which finally stumbled on my pregnant sister end of October 1998. Moreover that was one of the reasons to put a war in my country as Russia is asian based empire. And I don't even mention about that s--tty asian chinese exposing of pleasure as happiness upon my childhood struggle with a hard kidneys desease.
    As actually Julia Roberts referencing to me as Anatolian so "Pretty woman" story is about that one of me and George exposing our platonic but absolutely real relation.
