Frankie Goes to San Fernando Valley

lyrics

Aesthetically, perhaps I’m not too pleasing
You wouldn’t introduce me to your friends
Your shoulder isn’t cold, my love; it’s freezing
Toward all the fawning poetry I’ve penned
Though I may be offensive to your senses
And worse yet to your sensibilities
I know when I’m around I’ll never lower your defences
But your heart beat loses its stability

You’ll never know what its like to be me
All these synthetic feelings have this power over me
You’ll never know what its like to be me at all

I wasn’t born - I was made; so I’m quite mature for my age
These boys, they say they love you but they have no clue
'cause even though my paper’s frayed I’m sure we’re still on the same page
It’s just a shame I know I’ll never have you
You'll never let me close enough to hold you tight
But despite my frightful face I’m quite the charmer
I’ll keep all your photographs close to me at night
As I dream of being your knight in shining armour

You'll never know what it's like to be me
You see, I'm falling apart at the seams
You'll never know what it's like to be me at all

Manufactured to feel lust, but incapable of seduction
Tease me if you must, but I must leave you this instruction:
I’m not sure how well I’m put together; I think I’m falling apart
So please be particularly careful with my heart

You'll never know what it's like to be me
How can you empathise with a different breed?
You'll never know what it's like to be me
You weren't created in a laboratory
You'll never know what it's like to be me
You see I'm falling apart at the seams
You'll never know what it's like to be me at all
