Pet Shop Boys My October Symphony Lyrics

So much confusion

When autumn comes around

What to do about October

How to smile behind a frown?

It’s hard to settle down

It’s so bemusing

Will they cancel the parade?

We marched each October

Now they say we were never even saved

We must be very brave

Shall I rewrite or revise

My October symphony?

Or as an indication

Change the dedication

From revolution to revelation?

So we’re all drinking

As leaves fall to the ground

Because we’ve been thinking

How October’s let us down

Then and now

Shall we remember

December instead?

Or worry about February?

Mourn our war-torn dead

Never seeing red?

Shall I rewrite or revise

My October symphony?

Or as an indication

Change the dedication

From revolution to revelation?
