Letra 'Can You Forgive Her?'

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!
(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!

Sobre Can You Forgive Her?

  • "Can You Forgive Her" es el tema de apertura del quinto álbum de estudio de Pet Shop Boys Very y fue el primer sencillo publicado de él.

  • Contada desde la segunda persona y en parejas que riman, la canción synthpop de medio tiempo cuenta la historia de un hombre incapaz de sacudir la memoria de una cita del mismo sexo que tuvo en su juventud y cómo está complicando su relación romántica con su novia.

  • Hay un video musical para la canción con las mismas imágenes surrealistas de burros que la obra de arte única.

  • Se estrenó un vídeo dirigido por Howard Greenhalgh.

  • En Cien letras y un poema, el letrista Neil Tennant escribe: "Estaba de vacaciones leyendo la novela victoriana 'Can You Forgive Her?' de Anthony Trollope. Un amigo comentó que el título sonaba como el título de una canción de Pet Shop Boys, lo que me inspiró a escribir esta letra sobre un hombre cuya novia se burla de él por ocultar su evidente anhelo homosexual. Las referencias a la escuela sugirieron a nuestro diseñador de vestuario, David Fielding, poniéndonos 'sombreros puntiagudos' como se ve en el video musical de la canción y en la obra de arte única inspirados en las gorras de los burros".
