Pet Shop Boys - Can You Forgive Her? Lyrics




Another night with open eyes
Too late to sleep, too soon to rise
You're short of breath, is it 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'd make 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 the 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?
And ask yourself: Can you even deliver
What she demands of you?
Or do you want revenge?
But that's childish, so childish! You could do anything [x8]

    capos. los mejores del... tecnopop..

  17. Félix Duyos

    The whole album Very is so amazing and ahead of its time, and this music video is proof of that! Just incredible, boys ❤️

    Sitra Achra

    "Very" was where they peaked, in my humble opinion. After that it began to go downhill...at least to my taste.

    Félix Duyos

    @Sitra Achra I think Bilingual is a beautiful album. My least favourite era is from 2001-2007, especially the albums Release and Fundamental, but everything they've released since is really nice in my opinion! Yes, Electric and Super are great works of electronic, house-oriented pop.

  18. Carlos Ortiz

    Muy linda cancion,me buenos recuerdos del 93.

  30. Patrick Hodges

    I will never tire of Neil Tennant's voice. NEVER.

  31. Mike Girard

    This is an excellent short story about an emotionally battered closet case wrapped in a really catchy pop tune. Neil Tennant is a genius.

  32. David Mason

    Why does the music to this song sound like it could be the theme tune to the six o clock news?

    Amazing track!!!! From my childhood I was in love with pet shop boys. so cool music. Amazing sound and production values!!!

    You dont seek revenge from those who you love. As long as they love you back. She needs your love and you need hers.

  37. Михаил Сергопольцев

    И снова ночь сон гонит прочь.
    И не уснуть, и встать не вмочь.
    Часто дышишь, ах, как сердце стучит.
    Жар румянцем на щеках лежит.

    Ты влюблён-это, как позор.
    Она ушла, а смех толпы в ушах звучит до сих пор.
    Ты влюблён-это будто боль,
    Ведь слишком много правды в том, что она скажет вновь.

    Спроси себя: простишь ли её ты,
    Если нужен ей?
    У себя: что дашь ли ты ей то,
    Что требует взамен?

    Снова видишь странные сны
    О глупостях своей весны.
    Признай-неправ, о, нет, нет, нет.
    И очнёшься, вдруг, не в силах забыть то тебе.

    Трудно ей опять сдержать смешок,
    Ведь ты танцуешь диско и не любишь рок.
    И смеясь она была с тобой,
    Сказав, что нужен ей тот, кто будет все же другой.

    Спроси себя: простишь ли её ты,
    Станет умолять?
    У себя: что дашь ли ты ей то,
    Что требует отдать?
    И нужна ль тебе месть?-
    То детство, лишь детство...
    То детство, лишь детство...

    Так вспомни же, как просто был уведён
    За тот велосипедный трек, крокетный павильон.
    Всё сбылось о чём мечтал,
    Смотрел в те синие глаза и знал:

    То любовь, сил притворяться нет
    Позабыть чему свой она давала обет.
    Известно ей, что ты ощутил,
    Но знать она не хочет то, что ты не забыл.

    Спроси себя: простишь ли её ты,
    Станет умолять?
    У себя: что дашь ли ты ей то,
    Что требует отдать?

    У себя: простишь ли её ты,
    Станет умолять?
    У себя: что дашь ли ты ей то,
    Что требует отдать?
    И нужна ль тебе месть?-
    То детство, лишь детство...

  38. Akephalos

    Alguien sabe que software usaron para hacer las animaciones???

  39. NoMoneyG

    Was in the Club when this came out & a Big Club that had one giant room that was the "Video" room & dance floor. Of course they always played the "Club Remix Versions" or "Hot Tracks Remixes"!!

  40. CareBare Hair

    This song helped me get over the breakdown of my marriage. I've always loved the Pet Shop Boys - and always will!

  41. Jonathan Campos

    I' ve only forgotten her , couldn't forgive!

  42. Tônico o Rei do Norte

    I've never heard this song before. As a lover of folk I know Finntroll and their covers from Nifelvind. So I came here to listen to the source, and I don't regret it!

  43. Kayra Tisdell

    This song is one of their best songs in my opinion, yet so underrated.

  44. Dunkelherz

    listening to this song in the early 90s during puperty was strength giving not to break into gazilion pieces from losing the first love. 26 years later and it still hits the nail even as an adult struggling with relationships

  45. aramanth

    🚧  *Becuae you dance to disco and you don't like rock!*
                     LOL PSB really know their fans!!!   
    📯  One thing I love about this song are the brass hits 
    that Chris has punctuated the song with like he did in
    "It's a Sin"!  Love that Euro Techno sound!!!!!!!

    Thanks for posting!!

  46. Grace L

    This song makes me chuckle every time eyes rolling 🙄🙄🙄

  47. David Cardenas

    Perfect song for open a great album! Psb you are genius.

  58. Наташа Радченко

    Пет шо бойз группа моей мечты

  59. Zciliya Films

    The fact that this song never found the radio in the US shows how bad our taste in music was starting to get.

  60. Teddy Malfoy

    Can I ? I doubt it. Hate myself for loving and f...g her

  61. Beavispdx

    is this song about being closeted gay with a woman?

  62. RasputinWatchSite

    released around 1993 spring to summer...26 years later still sounds great.

    Richard Hammer

    The whole album summed up the sound and feel at the time, and it takes me right back there as soon as I hear it.

  63. Janet Broadley

    The first time I heard this I didn't find it catchy, but after a few listens it grew on me an dnow I love it!

  64. MR & MRS. NOTHING.

    Non-existent is the only one who always safe and protected from all life bad things !!!!! 💔

  65. Алексей Орлов

    Almost 30 years passed, but Very still sounds very. (not mentioning Very Relentless because it was a memory of the future)

  66. Bella León

    Excuse me!🤨
    What is the sense of this stupid video- design??....
    .Is childish..so childish...😝

  67. p01 echeverria collante

    este video salio en el año 1993, y los alcance a ver mucho tiempo después, no lo transmitieron muy seguido ese año por la tv colombiana, de lo q me perdia rrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  68. RoqueDJ V E V O

  72. Тамара Степанова

    If you take 1:55 & compare it to Dr Strange 2016 at appx 1:15 you'll probably recognise the background footage.

  73. Peter

    Badly advertised? Or just not popular??

    This is so catchy...

  74. Magnoler Riccardo

  77. Olman Aguilar

    I would like to know the name of the park where some scenes were filmed, as well as the bridge.

    Jamie Betts

    Hyde Park, and London Bridge

    Olman Aguilar

    @Jamie Betts Hello Jamie, greetings from a Costa Rican Pethead, thanks a lot for the information, I was using Google Maps trying to identify parks with lakes and boat rentals, but obviously the video was filmed long ago and many things might have changed.
    There are not many clues about the specific locations but it will be fun to look for.
    I really appreciate your kind help.
    I only knew the place where A Red Letter Day video, now I have 2 more on the list. Muchas gracias.

    Haris Baki

    @Olman Aguilar The video is from 1993. Internet was not even discovered by then, let alone Google Earth :)

  83. Cain Nuke

    Best Pet Shop Boys song ever.

  84. Jose Carlos Guillen

    Sin duda el mejor duo del mundo.

  85. Alexander Dahoola

    How did they achieve all those CGI images so well in 1993?

    Simon Emmott

    Huge mainframe supercomputers

  86. Richard Lisi

    ty PSB !

  87. Jaoyte Potter-Urbanek

    For David, who got me hooked on the PSB. I hope you found the happiness you deserved, even if it wasn't with me.

    Tom Mulchinock

    You HAD to make it about you

  88. Rob Watson

    great track and classic PSB chord progressions, but the heavy overuse of the Fairlight Orchestra Stab nearly kills it for me

    Izaak Bakker

    never enough of that " choo, choo choo" ... ah... maybe... :D

  89. AngryBirdsMusic

    I was 14 years when this video came in the summer of 1993, MTV played it a lot and I was fascinated by the animations. This video was really ahead of its time and groundbreaking when it came to animations made by the computers.

  90. RufRGTFan

    This song is about a camp or gay man and a woman who doesn't like that.

    Izaak Bakker

    not camp, he s gay. she knows, but he denies it and his girlfriend 's a narcissist who knows and abuses that. it empowers her in the relationship while he suffers.

  91. Pit Spielmann

    Awful graphics when you look at it today - but back in the 90's, the coolest video ever ;-)

  92. SNES Fan89

    Ahh, childhood!
