Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Being Boring  Pet Shop Boys

[F#m]  I came across a cache of old photos
and [Em7]invitations to teenage parties
[F#m]  Dress in white one said with quotations
from [Em7]someone’s wife,
a famous writer in the n[G/A]ineteen-tw[A]enties

[D]  When you’re young you find inspiration
in[G6] anyone who’s ever gone
[C]  And opened up a closing door
[Am]  She said we were never feeling b[A]ored

‘Cos we were never b[Bb]eing boring [C]
We had too much t[Am7]ime to find for our[Dm]selves
And we were never b[Bb]eing boring [C]
We dressed up and f[Am7]ought then thought make a[Dm]mends
And we were never h[Bb]olding back or w[Am7]orried that
[Gm7]time would come to an[Fmaj7] end
When I went I left from the station
with a haversack and some trepidation
Someone said if you’re not careful you’ll have nothing left
and nothing to care for in the nineteen-seventies

But I sat back and looking forward,
my shoes were high and I had scored
I’d bolted through a closing door
and I would never find myself feeling bored

‘Cos we were never b[Bb]eing boring [C]
We had too much [Am7]time to find for our[Dm]selves
And we were never b[Bb]eing boring [C]
We dressed up and f[Am7]ought then thought make a[Dm]mends
And we were never h[Bb]olding back or w[Am7]orried that
[Gm7]time would come to an [C]end
We were always h[Bb]oping that, l[Am7]ooking back
you could [Gm7]always rely on a [Fmaj7]friend

Em7 Fmaj7 x2

Now I sit with different faces in rented rooms and foreign places
All the people I was kissing, some are here and some are missing
in the nineteen-nineties

I never dreamt that I would get to be
the creature I always meant to be
But I thought in spite of dreams, you’d be sitting her with me

‘Cos we were never being boring
We had too much time to find for ourselves
And we were never being boring
We dressed up and fought then thought make amends
And we were never holding back or worried that
time would come to an end
We were always hoping that, looking back
you could always rely on a friend
And we were never b[Bb]eing boring [C]
We were n[Am7]ever being b[Dm]ored
‘Cos we were never b[Bb]eing boring [C]
We were n[Am7]ever feeling b[Dm]ored

[Bb]    [Am7]     [Gm7]     [Fmaj7]
