Anka, Paul - It's A Sin Lyrics




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

  6. Robert Bruce Jackson Caruthers

    Chills.

  7. Julian Ferretti

    Absolutely beautiful! How can it be a sin

  8. Jan Porter

    While the song is powerful with Tennant's feelings about Catholicism vs. his homosexuality, Anka's version gives it a different interpretation like a career criminal or Mafia member going into Confession.

    What a great voice this guy has, this album is so different from anything I have heard him do before and this cover is so smooth. I love to find covers of well known songs which bring something different to the song. And he is 70!

  18. CoverHeaven

    nice cover

  19. plastique303

    I saw the Pet Shop Boys last night, when they'd finished this song was played as everyone left :)

  20. huulio

    Cool version

  21. voguevixen

    I'm so glad this is finally online SOMEWHERE. No one has believed me until now.

  22. Zpendiuz

    Vaya canción de Paul Anka, transformando el electro pop de Pet Shop Boys a una suave Bossa Nova.
