Pet Shop Boys Birthday Boy Lyrics

Birthday boy

Can’t explain

Christmas Eve

He’s born again

On the line a broken train going nowhere endless rain

Birthday boy so afraid plays the machines in the arcade

Oh baby do you remember he’s been through all this before? Spent the summer getting nowhere

Taking all of the blame for the city calculating from pain comes pity

Christmas Eve a time of joy if you believe in Birthday boy

This time around it’s all a mistake Is he deluded or just a fake?

Oh baby do you remember he’s been through all this before? Spent the summer getting nowhere

Taking all of the blame for the city calculating

from pain comes pity

If you knew his name would you feel the same? If you knew his name?

Birthday boy stands apart as the drama’s about to start

A quick betrayal

A speedy trial

As before

Complete denial

Oh baby do you remember he’s been through all this before? Spent the summer getting nowhere

Taking all of the blame for the city calculating

From pain comes pity

If you knew his name would you feel the same?
