Pet Shop Boys Fluorescent Lyrics

You walk in and light up the room

You’ve been living

in a looking-glass scene

since you

were seventeen

I can’t deny

you’ve made your mark

with the helicopters

and the occasional oligarch

Brighter and brighter and brighter

you burn

When you’re in this mood

there’s no return

Life’s a gamble

throwing the dice

Every scandal

has its price

Brighter and brighter and brighter

you burn

When you’re in this mood

there’s no return

Fluorescent

Incandescent

At midnight

it’s time for business

but who

will bear witness

to your beauty

and your fame?

And how well

you’ve played the game?

Brighter and brighter and brighter

you burn

When you’re in this mood

there’s no return

Life’s a gamble

throwing the dice

Every scandal

has its price

Brighter and brighter and brighter

you burn

When you’re in this mood

there’s no return

Fluorescent

Incandescent
