ANDY BELL lyrics - This Gay Thing Isn't Working

ANDY BELL
"This Gay Thing Isn't Working"
(Ashton / Frost)

Don't want to scream and shout
Not like I did when I came out
For too long now the feeling's been deserting
'Cos this gay thing isn't working

It's obvious I've hidden and denied
That I'm an able batsman for both sides
For all the time spent loving men or just flirting
Goodbye boys - this gay thing isn't working
Goodbye boys - this gay thing isn't working

If I said that you were my boyfriend
Would you smile, would you frown?
And if I said that I had a girlfriend
Would you runaway or stick around?
If I seem half alive and then half dead
Will you be my lover or my friend?
If I seem half in love and half in hate
I'm in a no-man's land between gay and straight!

Don't want to scream and shout
Not like I did when I came out
For too long now the feeling's been deserting
'Cos this gay thing isn't working
Goodbye boys - this gay thing isn't working

Oh why, must the world make you choose
When you love like I do
When everyone is your muse?
I'm sorry that I can't be with you
But there's nothing within
Just this heart that's confused
