To Step Aside – Pet Shop Boys

By the cathedral into the sun
Pilgrims are singing, their journey done
I look at my short life and think
Of all the champagne that I drink
With all the faces that I know
And how much further can one go?

And if I decide to step aside
I will try to reply to the feelings I hide

I look from my window down to the square
At workers still queueing patiently there
For market forces to provide
What history’s so far denied
For a different kind of fate
Than to labour long and always wait

And if I decide to step aside
I will try to return to the person inside

Will I always need you? Would you want me to?
Can you love me for good the way you thought you could?

Or will spring bring rain and summer burn?
Will tears at last precede the turn
From summer warmth to sudden cold
As certainly as growing old?

And if I decide to step aside
I will try to forget all the tears I’ll have cried

Ego Music – Pet Shop Boys

Ego music, it’s all about me
Ego music, it’s all about me
Me, me, me, me
Yes, yes, yes, yes
You, you, you, you
No, no, no, no
Ego music, it’s all about me
Me, me, me, me
Yes, yes, yes, yes
You, you, you, you
No, no, no, no
Ego music, it’s all about me

Ego music, it’s all about
Sense of entitlement
Sense of entitlement
Ego music, it’s all about
Sense of entitlement
Sense of entitlement

I see myself as a building
My mind is the office where the world gets done
There’s a nightclub in the basement when I need some fun
And in the penthouse later, that’s where the magic happens

Me, me, me, me
Yes, yes, yes, yes
You, you, you, you
No, no, no, no
Ego music, it’s all about me

There’s a real purity to my work
A childish innocence
But I’m also smart and sophisticated
I mean I grew up on the street
Sometimes I think I’m a simple folk singer
Other times a scary rich diva
What can I tell you, I’m an artist
And of course I’ve always had the humanitarian vision
I think everyone knows that
My commitment is to my career
And then giving something back

Ego music, it’s all about
Vacuum slogans
And up your sentiments
Ego music, it’s all about
Fake humility, sense of entitlement
Ego music, it’s all about me
I am my own demographic
What does that say about me
Ego music, it’s all about me

Me, me, me, me
Yes, yes, yes, yes
You, you, you, you
No, no, no, no
Ego music, it’s all about me
Me, me, me, me
Yes, yes, yes, yes
You, you, you, you
No, no, no, no
Ego music, it’s all about me

READ  Positive Role Model - Pet Shop Boys

I think what fascinates people about me
And I’m really grateful to my fans
Is that I’m totally fearless
And people really get that
In this sea of negativity
I’m a statue of liberty
That’s why people love me
It’s humbling

Later Tonight – Pet Shop Boys

You wait ’til later
‘Til later tonight
You wait ’til later, ’til later
‘Til later tonight

That boy never cast a look in your direction
Never tried to hook for your affection
Dresses like the mod of your invention, tall and proud
He is the head boy of the school of thought
That plays in your intentions, night and day

And you wait ’til later
‘Til later tonight
You wait ’til later, ’til later
‘Til later tonight

And you wait ’til later
‘Til later tonight
You wait ’til later, ’til later
‘Til later tonight
‘Cause tonight always come
