"Father Figure" is the U.S. number-one song written and performed by George Michael and released on Columbia Records in 1988 as the third single from the album Faith.
"Father Figure" is a sharp and sensual tale of seduction which is more than five minutes long and epitomized the sexual nature of Michael's writing which he had adopted since the latter years of Wham!.
The song was actually supposed to be an uptempo dance track, but whilst checking his mix of the song, Michael turned off the snare track and realized he liked the song better without it.
Released in the United Kingdom in January 1988, "Father Figure" reached number eleven on the UK Singles Chart - the first time Michael had failed to reach the top ten in his home country. The song remained a live favourite at Michael's concerts for many years and is also one of his most frequently aired songs on the radio in the UK.
In the US, "Father Figure" became George Michael's sixth number one single (counting #1 singles garnered as half of Wham!). "Father Figure" debuted at #49 on January 16, 1988, while "Faith" was still prominent (at #9) in the top tier of the chart. In the subsequent weeks, "Father Figure" was a surefire hit,

Lyrics

Cold is your heart
when you're heart has been broken
Love is what's lost
when the loss leads to loathing
Pains what you've got
when you've got
got going
There is your food
And your food's
got you choking

Touch a good game
cause the rules are the same
I can't deny that we'll miss him
now that you've killed
it's a much bigger pill
cause larger words are missing

Say what you will
where's your father figure
Say what you will
Where's your father figure
now?

Spun is your head
and your head is unfolding
Crushed is your soul
and your soul is unloading

Torn are your thoughts
and your thoughts
make life hopeful
Gone is the cost
and the cost
is unhopeful

Touch a good game
cause the rules are the same
I can't deny that we'll miss him
now that you've killed
it's a much bigger pill
cause larger words are missing

Say what you will
where's your father figure
Say what you will
Where's your father figure
now?

Say what you will
where's your father figure
Say what you will
Where's your father figure
Say what you will
where's your father figure
Say what you will
Where's your father figure
