'Cause I gotta have faith
I gotta have faith
Because I got to have faith, faith, faith
I got to have faith, faith, faith

George Michael - Faith lyrics meaning


In terms of relaunching his career, the video for the song did much of the hard work for Michael. It features the star in a leather jacket emblazoned with the words “USA” and “FAITH”, despite the singer songwriter hailing from East Finchley, London, England. His slicked back hair, aviator sunglasses and skin-tight jeans round off the image, while George dances next to a jukebox and a pair of female legs.

Several years later Michael would release his song “Freedom 90”, the video for which includes the blowing up of a jukebox. This supposedly symbolises Michael letting go of the image he had created for himself in the “Faith” video.
