A Red Letter Day

A Red Letter Day

Pet Shop Boys

Go to work and take your calls
Hang the fruits
Of your labour on the walls
Such precision and care
What does it matter
If there's no one here to share

The flowers in the garden
The wine
The "Waiting for Godot"
And so much modern time?

All I want
Is what you want
I'm always waiting
For a red letter day

The years perfecting a stance
Of measured cool
Fade into insignificance
The moment one starts to understand
What on earth
Does it profit a man?


For something special
Somehow new
Someone saying 'I love you'
Baby, I'm waiting
For that red letter day

You can sneer
Or disappear behind a veneer
Of self-control
But for all of those who don't fit in
Who follow their instincts
And are told they sin
This is a prayer for
A different way


Like Christmas morning
When you're a kid
Admit you love me
And you always did
Baby I'm hoping
For that red letter day
