About Happenin' All over Again

"Happenin' All over Again" is a song written and produced by Stock Aitken & Waterman for Lonnie Gordon's first album If I Have to Stand Alone (1991). It was released as the album's second single in January 1990 and reached #4 on the main UK singles chart. The song mixed Stock Aitken & Waterman's Europop sound with the blooming Italo house music which was becoming big in the UK charts at the time. This 1990 version was never released in the USA. The song had been originally written for Donna Summer, but due to a falling-out with the producers, she never recorded it and instead was given to Gordon. The Stock, Aitken & Waterman version was mixed by Phil Harding. A different version of the song was included on Gordon's 1993 album Bad Mood. This version was released as a U. S. single in 1993 and peaked at #98 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and also hit #1 on the U. S. Dance chart. Gordon re-recorded the song for a second time in 1998 and released it as a single.

You told me I'd never leave you baby
But I don't believe this is happening all over again

I was such a fool
To think that you would ever change your ways
Even put your hand upon your heart
And said that no-one else can take my place
How was I so blind
I trusted every single word you said
I know I should have seen the light
But I just let your love go to my head

Ive taken you back before 'cause you told me you've changed
Looked in my eyes and said

Believe me, then you
Broke my heart and deceived me, when you
Said you never could leave me
But its happening all over again (no, no, no)

I promised to myself
I'd never make the same mistakes again (same  mistakes)
And though I looked for someone else
I never really want to walk away

It seems that your just the same, I forgot all the pain
Look in your eyes, you said

Believe me, then you
Broke my heart and deceived me, when you
Said you never could leave me 
But its happening all over again
But its happening all over again
(You said believe me)
But its happening all over again
(Deceived me)
But its happening all over again
(Believe me)
But its happening all over again
But its happening all over again

Ive taken you back before 'cause you told me you've changed
Looked in my eyes and said

(Repeat till fade)
Believe me, then you
Broke my heart and deceived me, when you
Said you never could leave me 
But its happening all over again
