Darren Hayes – Music Video Lyrics

 

Music Video Lyrics by Darren Hayes

 

1982
Oh I was a very young ten years old
Tenderoni got to school early to avoid home
I was emerging I was finding myself
A butterfly before the guys
Knew I was different but I wasn’t ashamed yet
Oh Tammy Loewe you were the only fly girl in school
And I was obsessed with you
With your hair and your beautiful brown eyes
I was gonna direct you in my own music video
I had to get your hair just right
And that’s when I felt a slap from behind
The school Principal she said,
“Oh Darren Hayes you’re a little fairy aren’t you?
If I catch you playing with the girls again you’ll be in detention.
Because I know there’s a name for boys like you”

There’s a place I wanna go
Inside a music video
Where boys wear makeup and we play guitar
Neon is how I feel love is a battlefield
That’s the place I wanna live
Where girls have names like Billie Jean
We dance in front of my VCR
Steal a DeLorean never look back again

1984
Oh I was a very young twelve years old
Shy but lonely not quite a girl but quite a ways from the guys
Internalizing I was hiding my magic
Sensitive lost in my mind
I knew I was different but I thought I could change it
Ooh Stephen Baker you were the handsome new boy at school
And I was obsessed with you
Your messy hair and those braces and that smile
I fantasized about holding hands
I liked to imagine what a hug would feel like
But that’s when I got a letter from Mike
I opened it up it said
“Oh Darren Hayes you’re in love with Stephen, aren’t you?
Well if I catch you watching him in class again you’ll get a broke nose.
Because Darren there’s a name for boys like you”

There’s a place I wanna go
Inside a music video
Where boys wear makeup and we play guitar
Neon is how I feel love is a battlefield
That’s the place I wanna live
Where girls have names like Billie Jean
We dance in front of my VCR
Steal a DeLorean never look back again

There’s a place I wanna go
Inside a music video
Where boys wear makeup and we play guitar
Neon is how I feel love is a battlefield
That’s the place I wanna live
Ooh and I did
Where girls have names like Billie Jean
You know
We dance in front of my VCR
Steal a DeLorean
I never looked back again
