Official music video by 'Pet Shop Boys' per­form­ing 'It's A Sin' (2003 Digital Remaster) taken from the album 'Actually' (1987).

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 I
It’s a sin

Confiteor Deo omni­po­tenti vobis
fratres quia pec­cavi nimis cogit­a­tione, verbo, opere
et omis­sione. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea max­ima culpa.
