it´s a sin [censored]

"When I look back upon my life

It’s always with a sense of shame

I’ve always been the one to blame

For everything I long to do

No matter when or where or who

Has one thing in common, too

 

It’s a, it’s a, it’s a, it’s a sin

It’s a sin

Everything I’ve ever done

Everything I ever do

Every place I’ve ever been

Everywhere I’m going to

It’s a sin

 

At school they taught me how to be

So pure in thought and word and deed

They didn’t quite succeed

For everything I long to do

No matter when or where or who

Has one thing in common, too

 

It’s a, it’s a, it’s a, it’s a sin

It’s a sin

Everything I’ve ever done

Everything I ever do

Every place I’ve ever been

Everywhere I’m going to

It’s a sin

 

Father, forgive me, I tried not to do it

Turned over a new leaf, then tore right through it

Whatever you taught me, I didn’t believe it

Father, you fought me, ’cause I didn’t care

And I still don’t understand

 

So I look back upon my life

Forever with a sense of shame

I’ve always been the one to blame

For everything I long to do

No matter when or where or who

Has one thing in common, too

 

It’s a, it’s a, it’s a, it’s a sin

It’s a sin

Everything I’ve ever done

Everything I ever do

Every place I’ve ever been

Everywhere I’m going to - it’s a sin

It’s a, it’s a, it’s a, it’s a sin

It’s a, it’s a, it’s a, it’s a sin

 

(confiteor deo omnipotenti vobis fratres, quia peccavi nimis cogitatione,

Verbo, opere et omissione, mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa)

[trans. i confess to almighty god,

And to you my brothers,

That I have sinned exceedingly

In thought, word, act and omission,

Through my fault, through my fault,

Through my most grievous fault]

 

(zero!)"

 

Pet Shop boys, "It´s a Sin".
