YOUNG OFFENDER Lyrics

Artist: Pet Shop Boys
Album: Very

(Tennant/Lowe)
------------------
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, crash on the way
Watch your reaction, wait 'till you say
You'll get what you want
It hurts if you can't

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

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

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

Is there fire in your eyes, or the glow of machines?
Watch how your fingers thumb over the keys
So sure what you do
I haven't a clue

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

How could she be born after he turned 13 and he still be a teenager by the time they got together?

It's not she it's he, he's singing the song to his young lover, remember that Neil Tennant is gay. I'm not gay but I like this masterpiece of music.

Actually Carberto, Neil Tennant is bi-sexual, so How do you know it's not a she?

Yes, Kenyo Jose, the music is tremblingly perfect. Expecially the guitars. I would love to perform it if I could get that sound on my own.

I always thought he said, "it hurts a few cunts"! L.O.L.

I thought it was "turn over the keys", or "burn over the keys", not "thumb over the keys". It really messes me up to know that he was not saying eighter what Puppet though, or I.

O.K., I know for a fact, he say's "I know" a 3rd time on the last chorous/verse/line whatever you call it. But I like it so much I wish I heared it when it came out. Hell. I wish I heared all their music first when they each were fresh off the print. that would of brightened up my 80's and my 90's! [=
