[this demo version starts with a Molly Ringwald's sample of the film Pretty In Pink]

I... I knew it
I knew it all along
When I was five, I felt it
Remember when she didn't come home that time?
I knew it then. I knew why
I was fourteen and I knew it
You were fifty and you didn't
You know, you can't go on
living every day in the past

[the song starts here]

The girl in the picture
won second prize for
something she did when
she was in school
Now she wants me to drive her home
Now she wants me to play that song again
"Play it again Michael"

The light in the doorway
means someone is waiting
The voice at your window
means you are young
Now what color is your hair today girl?
What are you crying about?
Please everybody sing...

Dear Cult Hero, please come home
The boys and girls are all alone
Dear Cult Hero, please come home
The boys and girls know...
"Some sad things are going to happen"

Nobody talks to you
There's shouting in the schoolyard
The ghost of Sid Vicious
appears in your room
And as you throw out your arms to embrace him
You go tumbling down the stairs
Everybody sing...

Dear Cult Hero, please come home
The boys and girls are all alone
Dear Cult Hero, please come home
The boys and girls know...
"Some sad things are going to happen"

And Sid says
"Leave these kids alone"
Sid says
"Leave these kids alone"
