PRIVATE LIFE Lyrics

Artist: Pretenders
Album: Isle Of View

YOUR PRIVATE LIFE DRAMA BABY LEAVE ME OUT
(REPEAT 3 TIMES)
J'AI LES GLANDS WITH YOUR THEATRICS
YOUR ACTING'S A DRAG
IT'S OK ON TV 'CAUSE YOU CAN TURN IT OFF
BUT DON'T TRY ME
YES YOUR MARRIAGE IS A TRAGEDY
BUT IT'S NOT MY CONCERN
I'M VERY SUPERFICIAL I HATE ANYTHING OFFICIAL


(CHORUS)
YOUR PRIVATE LIFE DRAMA BABY LEAVE ME OUT
(REPEAT 3 TIMES)
(BACKUP CHORUS)
YOU'VE BEEN LYING TO SOMEONE AND NOW ME
STOP
(REPEAT 3 TIMES)


YOUR SENTIMENTAL GESTURES ONLY BORE ME TO DEATH
YOU'VE MADE A DESPERATE APPEAL NOW SAVE YOUR BREATH
ATTACHMENT TO OBLIGATION THROUGH GUILT AND REGRET
SHIT THAT'S SO WET
AND YOUR SEX LIFE COMPLICATIONS ARE NOT MY FASCINATIONS


(CHORUS)

YOU ASKED ME FOR ADVICE I SAID USE THE DOOR
BUT YOU'RE STILL CLINGING TO SOMEBODY YOU DEPLORE
AND NOW YOU WANNA USE ME FOR EMOTIONAL BLACKMAIL
I JUST FEEL PITY WHEN YOU LIE, CONTEMPT WHEN YOU CRY


(CHORUS)

I bought this album when it first came out in 1980. It's still on my top ten list, and Private Life is my third favorite tune, behind The Wait and Tattooed Love Boys. I always thought that the backing chorus says "you've been lying to someone ABOUT me", but contextually, it works either way. I truly love the end solo. It give me chills every time I listen to it.

I love the bass line.

I bought this disc when it first came out and it didn't leave the turntable for months. This WAS my favorite cut on it, but I can say that all of them were good-not a bad cut amongst them. It describe for me how someone can be pissed off with someone or a relationship, but still interested. (Although Chrissie seems to say she isn't I thought she was.) The guitar playing, although understated, is superb, and it perfectly captures the angst the lyrics portray.

i want to thank you for being the only one to get the second line correctly translated! every place else says "getting tired of your theatrics" when it's so obvious that's not it! so bravo!
