Pet Shop Boys In Denial Lyrics


In denial, no my life’s a trial

I’m not denying that every

little bit hurts

It’s a problem that I’m not solving

Don’t mind admitting

I feel like quitting this job

For a while getting away

Before it gets any worse today


You’re in denial, and that is final

You’re not admitting

You should be quitting all these

Queens and fairies

And muscle Marys

The rough trade boyfriend

Who in his pathetic own way

Denies he’s gay

Why can’t you see

This is a fantasy world


Think I’m going mad

How’d you know if you’re going mad


Look at me I’m lonely


Look at me I’m sad

I’m not denying

I could be trying

A little harder

To deal with some of this stuff


Know what I’m thinking

Less drugs and drinking

No cigarettes and you’d feel

A little less rough


Is that enough

My life is absurd

I’m living it upside down

Like a vampire

Working at night and

Sleeping all day

A dad with a girl

who knows he’s gay


Can you love me anyway
