West End Girls Lyrics

Artist: Pet Shop Boys


Sometimes you're better off dead
There's a gun in your hand and it's pointing at your head
You think you're mad too unstable
Kicking in chairs and knocking down tables
In a restaurant in a West End town
Call the police
There's a madman around
Running down underground to a dive bar
In a West End town

In a West End town a dead end world
The East End boys and West End girls
In a West End town a dead end world
The East End boys and West End girls
West End girls

Too many shadows whispering voices
Faces on posters too many choices
If when why what how much have you got
Have you got it do you get it
If so how often
Which do you choose
A hard or soft option
(How much do you need)

In a West End town a dead end world
The East End boys and West End girls
In a West End town a dead end world
The East End boys and West End girls
West End girls
West End Girls

(How much do you need)
In a West End town a dead end world
The East End boys and West End girls
Ooh West End town a dead end world
East End boys West End Girls
West End girls

You got a heart of glass or a heart of stone
Just you wait till I get you home
We've got no future
We've got no past
Here today built to last
In every city in every nation
From Lake Geneva to the Finland nation
(How far have you been)

In a West End town a dead end world
The East End boys and West End girls
In a West End town a dead end world
East End Boys West End girls
West End girls
West End girls
West End girls
(How far have you been)

It's a talking song about Urban Life! I think it's nice, if I can't be an uptown girl, I'd settle for a west end girl.

The lyric:

"From Lake Geneva to the Finland nation"

Is wrong. Should be:

"From Lake Geneva to the Finland Station"

Thanks

Yes it's finland Station Ko, it refers to the station Lenin arrived at on his way back from exile to a revolutionary russia.

The west end girls are I believe about the working girls of soho and london in general.

The Dive bar was an excellent underground bar that shut a few years ago in china town. It had a caverous shape to the celling and sometimes a dj would do a set of old jazz records or anything really, very 50's.

I think the song is about being excited and exhilarated but slightly scared in a big city.
