Radio 60, side A, track 9: “Getting Away With It” by Electronic and Neil Tennant

Electronic - Getting Away With ItOh, Electronic and Neil Tennant, I’m going to just start typing and see what happens, but I’m still out of town and I’m not really focused, so don’t expect anything amazing this time out.  Not like I’m writing any gems any other time.  And I’m sorry that I’m not more into the blogging just now because I really dug this song then as much as I do now.  I will say that the main chorus does kind of sum up a little how I feel about myself, i.e. that I’ve been getting away with it all my life.  In that as much as I complain about being depressed and anxious and stuff, I’m still pretty lucky and have been all my life.  For example, my cousin recently reminded me that when I was a little kid, I blamed her for biting me as a calculated ruse to be able to play with a Slinky by myself and not have to share.  Apparently my lie worked and my cousin got bit on her arm as punishment.  What a sociopathic little shit.  Talking about myself.  That’s just one example.  I’ve kind of been a slippery little so-and-so throughout my life, and yet I still have people who like me and think I’m nice.  And don’t get me wrong, Electronic and Neil Tennant, I do try to by nice, but at heart I don’t think that I am.  But my wife seems to think I am.  So do other friends and relatives.  I don’t quite get it, but I guess it’s just ’cause they can’t see into my heart of hearts.  Maybe I shouldn’t even be typing this, giving a little peek behind the curtain and all.  Your awesome song relaxed me too much and I gave away all my secrets.  Damn you, Electronic and Neil Tennant.

“Getting Away With It”

<awesome Electronic and Neil Tennant jam>

I’ve been walking in the rain just to get wet on purpose

I’ve been forcing myself not to forget just to feel worse

I’ve been getting away with it all my life (getting away)
However I look it’s clear to see that I love you more than you love me
However I look it’s clear to see
I love you more than you love me

I hate that mirror, it makes me feel so worthless

I’m an original sinner but when I’m with you I could care less

I’ve been getting away with it all my life
Getting away with it
All my life (getting away)
However I look it’s clear to see that I love you more than you love me
However I look it’s clear to see
I love you more than you love me

I love you more than you love me

More than you love me
I thought I gave up falling in love a long, long time ago
I guess I like it but I can’t tell you, you shouldn’t really know

And it’s been true
All my life

Yes, it’s been true
All my life

<awesome Electronic and Neil Tennant jam>

I’ve been talking to myself just to suggest that I’m selfish
(Getting ahead)
I’ve been trying to impress that more is less and I’m repressed
(I should do what he said)
However I look it’s clear to see
I love you more than you love me
However I look it’s clear to see
I love you more than you love me

I love you more than you love me

I love you more than you love me

<awesome Electronic and Neil Tennant jam>
