it’s a sin lyrics – pet shop boys

“it’s a sin”

(twenty seconds and counting…
t minus fifteen seconds, guidance is okay)
??
when i look back upon my life
it’s always with a sense of shame
i’ve always been the one to blame
for everything i long to do
no matter when or where or who
has one thing in common, too

it’s a, it’s a, it’s a, it’s a sin
it’s a sin
everything i’ve ever done
everything i ever do
every place i’ve ever been
everywhere i’m going to
it’s a sin

at school they taught me how to be
so pure in thought and word and deed
they didn’t quite succeed
for everything i long to do
no matter when or where or who
has one thing in common, too

it’s a, it’s a, it’s a, it’s a sin
it’s a sin
everything i’ve ever done
everything i ever do
every place i’ve ever been
everywhere i’m going to
it’s a sin

father, forgive me, i tried not to do it
turned over a new leaf, then tore right through it
whatever you taught me, i didn’t believe it
father, you fought me, ’cause i didn’t care
and i still don’t understand

so i look back upon my life
forever with a sense of shame
i’ve always been the one to blame
for everything i long to do
no matter when or where or who
has one thing in common, too

it’s a, it’s a, it’s a, it’s a sin
it’s a sin
everything i’ve ever done
everything i ever do
every place i’ve ever been
everywhere i’m going to – it’s a sin
it’s a, it’s a, it’s a, it’s a sin
it’s a, it’s a, it’s a, it’s a sin

(confiteor deo omnipotenti vobis fratres, quia peccavi nimis cogitatione,
verbo, opere et omissione, mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa)
[trans. “i confess to almighty god,
and to you my brothers,
that i have sinned exceedingly
in thought, word, act and omission,
through my fault, through my fault,
through my most grievous fault”]

(zero!)
