Can you forgive her?

(Written by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe)

Another night
With open eyes
Too late to sleep and
Too soon to rise
You're short of breath
It is a heart attack?
Hot and feverish
You face the fact

You're in love
And it feels like shame
Because she's gone and made a fool of you in public again
You're in love
And it feels like pain
Because you know there's too much truth in everything she claims

So ask yourself now
Can you forgive her?
If she wants you to
Ask yourself can you even deliver
What she demands of you?

You drift into
The strangest dreams
Of youthful follies
And changing teams
Admit you're wrong
Oh no! Not yet!
Then you wake up and remember that you can't forget

She's made you
Some kind of laughing stock
Because you dance to disco and you don't like rock
She made fun
Of you and even in bed
Said she was gonna go and get herself a real man instead

So ask yourself now
Can you forgive her?
If she begs you to
Ask yourself can you even deliver
What she demands of you?
Or do you want revenge?
But that's childish, so childish
But that's childish, so childish

Remember when
You were more easily led
Behind the cricket pavilion
And the bicycle shed
Trembling as
Your dreams came true
You looked right into those blue eyes and knew

It was love
And now you can't pretend
You've forgotten all the promises of that first friend
It's bad enough
She knows how you feel but
She's not prepared to share you with a memory

So ask yourself now
Can you forgive her?
If she begs you to
Ask yourself can you even deliver
What she demands of you?

Ask yourself now
Can you forgive her?
If she begs you to
Ask yourself can you even deliver
What she demands of you?
Or do you want revenge?
But that's childish, so childish
It's so bloody childish
