memory of the future lyrics – pet shop boys

memory of the future

you seem to be
inevitable to me
like a memory of the future
i was and will be with you

over and over again
i keep tasting that sweet madeleine
looking back at my life now and then
asking if not later then when?

it’s taken me all of my life
it’s taken me all of my life to find you
it’s taken me all of my life
it’s taken me all of my life to find you

you unlock the past
so many scenes revealing fast
at last the right conclusion
or at least a sweet illusion

over and over again
i keep tasting that sweet madeleine
looking back at my life now and then
asking if not later then when?

it’s taken me all of my life
it’s taken me all of my life to find you
it’s taken me all of my life
it’s taken me all of my life to find you

you seem to be
a perfect memory
of the future reminding me
how life is meant to be

over and over again
i keep tasting that sweet madeleine
looking back at my life now and then
asking if not later then when?

it’s taken me all of my life
it’s taken me all of my life to find you
it’s taken me all of my life
it’s taken me all of my life to find you

it’s taken me all of my life
it’s taken me all of my life to find you
it’s taken me all of my life
it’s taken me all of my life to find you

it’s taken me all of my life
