Bronski Beat - Smalltown Boy

(Bronski/Steinbachek/Somerville)

You leave in the morning
With everything you own
In a little black case
Alone on a platform
The wind and the rain
On a sad and lonely face

Mother will never understand
Why you had to leave
But the answers you seek
Will never be found at home
The love that you need
Will never be found at home

Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away.
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away.

Pushed around and kicked around
Always a lonely boy
You were the one
That they'd talk about around town
As they put you down

And as hard as they would try
They'd hurt to make you cry
But you never cried to them
Just to your soul
No you never cried to them
Just to your soul

Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away.
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away.

Cry , boy, cry...

You leave in the morning
With everything you own
In a little black case
Alone on a platform
The wind and the rain
On a sad and lonely face

Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away.
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away.

Communards - There's More To Love Than Boy Meets Girl

(Somerville/Coles)

I would like to shout it from the highest mountain
To tell the world I’ve found love and what it means to me
But all around there’s violence and laws to make me think again
Maybe one day they will understand
There’s more to love than boy meets girl
There’s more to love than boy meets girl
For love is strange and uncontrolled, it can happen to anyone
There’s more to love than boy meets girl

How can one man decide the fate and destiny of innocent lovers
And why is it less of a crime to take the life of another?
Through time they’ve always tried to hide and cast aside this love denied
In the shadows we held each other tight
There’s more to love than boy meets girl
There’s more to love than boy meets girl
For love is strange and uncontrolled, it can happen to anyone
There’s more to love than boy meets girl

I saw your face, it caught the light, infatuation swirls inside
My every thought for days was only you
So I’ll climb that mountain and shout it loud
I’ll never let them bring me down
And one day they will have to understand
There’s more to love than boy meets girl
There’s more to love than boy meets girl
For love is strange and uncontrolled, it can happen to anyone
There’s more to love than boy meets girl

There’s more to love than boy meets girl
There’s more to love than boy meets girl
For love is strange and uncontrolled, it can happen to anyone
There’s more to love than boy meets girl

There’s more to love than boy meets girl
There’s more to love than boy meets girl
For love is strange and uncontrolled, it can happen to anyone
There’s more to love than boy meets girl

Erasure - Gimme Gimme Gimme

(Benny Anderson/Bjorn Ulvaeus)

Half past twelve
And I'm watching the late show in my flat all alone
How I hate to spend the evening on my own
Autumn winds
Blowing outside the window as I look around the room
And it makes me so depressed to see the gloom
There's not a soul out there
No one to hear my prayer

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Movie stars
Find the end of the rainbow, with a fortune to win
It's so different from the world I'm living in
Tired of TV
I open the window and I gaze into the night
But there's nothing there to see, no one in sight
There's not a soul out there
No one to hear my prayer

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

There's not a soul out there
No one to hear my prayer

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Carl Bean - I Was Born This Way

(Bunny Jones/Chris Spierer)

I'm walking through life in nature's disguise
You laugh at me and you criticize
Just because I'm happy, I'm carefree
And I'm gay, yes, I'm gay
T'ain't a fault tis a fact
I was born this way

You call me strange cause you don't understand
God's roll for me in life's overall plan
Oh yes, I'm happy, I'm carefree
And I'm gay, yes, I'm gay
T'ain't a fault tis a fact
I was born this way

Now I won't judge you and you don't judge me
We're all the way nature meant us to be
Just human beings -- born to be free
I can't be you and you can't be me
T'ain't a fault tis a fact, t'ain't a fault tis a fact
I was born this way

I've learned to hold my head up high
Not in scorn nor disgrace
Doing my thing individually
Entwined with the human race
Grooving in time -- playing in space
Oh, yes, I'm happy, I'm carefree
And I'm gay, yes, I'm gay
T'ain't a fault tis a fact
Yes, I was born this way

So be happy, be carefree
Yeah, ain't nothing wrong with being a little gay
T'ain't a fault tis a fact
I was really really born this way

I'm happy, I'm carefree
Yeah, I'm gay

Paul Lekakis - Boom Boom Boom

(Lekakis)

Hey baby I'd like to talk to you
How about coming back to my room for a little boom boom

You keep coming to me
I can dig your dynamite
Know the way you move
Get in the groove
You're driving me crazy, crazy for you

Second time you moved me
It's time for us to Boom Boom
You can come right close to me
And feel the burning fire
All the time you got me
It's fine for us to boom boom
If you see the spark in me
And feel my strong desire

Boom Boom Boom
Let's go back to my room
So we can do it all night
And you can make me feel right

Boom Boom Boom
Let's go back to my room
So we can do it all night
And you can make me feel right

Do the honor to me
Don't you know I like to bite
Get to the view
Closer to you
You're driving me crazy, crazy for you

Second time you moved me
It's time for us to Boom Boom
You can come right close to me
And feel the burning fire
All the time you got me
It's fine for us to boom boom
If you see the spark in me
And feel my strong desire

Boom Boom Boom
Let's go back to my room
So we can do it all night
And you can make me feel right

Boom Boom Boom
Let's go back to my room
So we can do it all night
And you can make me feel right

Bronski Beat - Why?

(Somerville/Steinbachek/Bronski)

Contempt in your eyes
As I turn to kiss his lips
Broken I lie
All my feelings denied
Blood on your fist

Can you tell me why?

You in your false securities
Tear up my life
Condemning me
Name me an illness
Call me a sin
Never feel guilty
Never give in

Tell me why?

You and me together
Fighting for our love

Can you tell me why?

Communards - You Are My World

(Somerville/Coles)

There is nothing boy that can stop my course
I will hold you tight never let you go
Tomorrow’s party will never end
Like a bud in spring our love will
Bloom and grow

Your eyes to me are precious stones
On a face that’s made of a solid gold
When I hold your hand I want to cry
And your loving arms to protect me
From the could you are my world

The soul inside now belongs to you
I’m drowning in a love so deep
We will overcome those ups and Downs
So happiness is forever ours to keep

I will follow you to the end of time
I will be the blood flowing through your veins
I will ride with you till the end of the line
You will be my everything

Jimmy Somerville - Because of Him

(Butcher /Somerville)

My heart is on fire
And it’s out of control
Lake a blazing inferno
Oh boy I don’t know
If I’m coming or going
My mind’s out to lunch
Lost all concentration
And it’s all because of him

With the wink of an eye
And there’s chaos in sight
He just has to smile and I’m melting
And there’s no drug I’ve tried
Could give such a high
As the heights that I reach
When he’s near

My nails are a mess
And I couldn’t care less
I’m calling it love
’cause there’s on other word
And it’s all because of him

Well I’m neither here
And I’m neither there
It’s like I’ve exploded emotions
Everywhere
And it’s all because of him

(Bronski/Steinbachek/Somerville)

Jimmy Somerville - Read My Lips

(Somerville)

Here we are and standing our ground
And we won't be moved by what they say
So we'll shout (Shout!)
As loud as we can
And we'll shout (Shout!)
'till they hear our demands
Money is what we need, not complacency
Read my lips and they will tell you
Enough is enough is enough is enough
Finding cures is not the only solution
And it's not a case of sinner absolution
So we'll fight (Fight!)
For love and with pride
And we'll fight (Fight!)
Standing together for the
Right to live and die with dignity
Read my lips and they will tell you
Enough is enough is enough is enough
The power within
We can use it to win
So we'll shout (Shout!)
As loud as we can
And we'll fight (Fight!)
'till they meet our demands
Money is what we need, not complacency
Read my lips and they will tell you
Enough is enough is enough is enough

Modern Rocketry - Homosexuality

(Ken Kessie/Morey Goldstein)
 
Sitting in a Paris disco
With a rocket in my hand
Just flew in from San Francisco
Will he take me as I am?
Down on the street
Up on the roof
I'll find you wherever I go
Whatever they do
Love will find a way
 
Homosexuality - YES SIR!
Do you want to get next to me?
Homosexuality - YES SIR!
Anything to fill your need
 
Homosexuality
Homosexuality - YES SIR!
Homosexuality
Homosexuality - YES SIR!
 
Cruising in a Brooklyn disco
With a trick from Amsterdam
I got lost on Fire Island
found my daddy in the can
 
Down on the street
Up on the roof
I'll find you wherever I go
Whatever they do
Love will find a way
 
Homosexuality - YES SIR!
Do you want to get next to me?
Homosexuality - YES SIR!
Anything to fill your need

Homosexuality
Homosexuality - YES SIR!
Homosexuality
Homosexuality - YES SIR!
 
Nobody, nobody else
Nobody, nobody else
Nobody, nobody else
Nobody, nobody

You've got to get next to me
Homosexuality - YES SIR!
Anything to fill your need
Homosexuality
Nobody, nobody else
Nobody, nobody else

Sin With Sebastian - He Belongs To Me

(Sebastian)

Mmm,, yes I won't forget the day we met,
the first thing he said: "let's go to bed, let's go to bed"

I love everything he does and says.
uh uhh, Na NA NA nanana ...
Yes he is so sweet, so nice to unwrap.
uh uhh, NA NA NA nanana ...

Is he just a lover?
uhuhuu, A fool in my play
uhuhuu, Or is he a hero, for more than a day?

He belongs to me, like the honey to the bee.
He will never be free.

How can I forget the day we met?
uh uhh, NA NA NA nanana ...
He was wild at heart and made me mad.
uh uhh, NA NA NA nanana ...

Is he just a lover?
uhuhuu, A fool in my play.
uhuhuu, Or is he a hero, for more than a day?

Since then so many days have gone - my bed's worn through from all the fun, from all the fun.

He's so sexy and he gives me thrills.
uh uhh, NA NA NA nanana ...
More than once I had to ask myself:
uh uhh, NA NA NA nanana ...

Is he just a lover?
uhuhuu, A fool in my play.
uhuhuu, Or is he a hero, for more than a day?

He belongs to me, like the sugar to my tee
and the salt to the see.

It was more than love at second sight.
uh uhh, NA NA NA nanana ...
We made love forever through the night
uh uhh, NA NA NA nanana ...

Is it love forever
uhuhuu, Changing the gray
uhuhuu, Or is it a vision
Fading away
