Jun 18 2011 [Day 230] “Young Offender” – Seattle Picture

Song Lyric Saturday

Pet Shop Boys
Young Offender
From the 1993 release “Very”
Written by Neil Tennant / Chris Lowe

Youtube: [ youtu.be/BW3W9wB18BE ] This is actually the 1999/2000 version the Pet Shop Boys performed during the Nightlife tour. I was lucky enough to see this tour, October 31, 2009 at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas

Young offender
what’s your defense?
You’re younger than me, obviously
I know, I know

You may be broke now and you may be bored
Call you delinquent or leave you ignored
You’ll get what you want
Drive to distraction and crash on the way
Watch your reaction and wait ’til you say
you’ll get what you want
It hurts if you can’t

I’ll do what you want if you want me enough
I’ll put down my book and start falling in love
or isn’t that done?
How graceful your movements, how bitter your scorn
I’ve been a teenager since before you were born
and I’m younger than some
I’ve only begun

Young offender
what’s your defense?
You’re younger than me, obviously
Young offender how you resent
the lovers you need
It hurts when they bleed
Young offender
why the pretense?
You don’t agree, I know, I know

Will I get in your way
or open your eyes?
Who will give whom
the bigger surprise?

Young offender
what’s your defense?
You’re younger than me, obviously

Young offender
why the pretense?
You don’t agree, I know, I know
