And while the city sleeps I won't weep because I didn't keep My boyfriend and the summer's end, is here again And the leaves are golden Under the grand silver birch tree
While we're thinking 'bout the people we meet Dancing feet, wasters on the cover of a magazine People you've kissed, people you lust And the one's that you might not Ever remember what's the use
I'm not what I was last summer Not who I was in the spring Tell me, tell me, tell me when will we learn We love it and we leave it and we watch it burn Damn these wild young hearts Damn these wild young hearts
Now that the city's awake, my heart aches Oh what a silly mistake it seems I've made You left your keys under my bed Left a thumpin' in my head I would say sorry, what's the use
Cause, I'm not what I was last September And I don't wear the same robes in May We know we shouldn't do it, but we do it anyway We know we might regret it but it seemed OK Damn this wild young heart Damn this wild young heart Damn this wild young heart
If now is forever then what's to prove Cause it won't be the same next summer And I guess I'll see you in the spring Somebody tell me, tell me, tell me, when will I learn I love it and I leave it and I watch it burn Damn this wild young heart I told you damn this wild young heart Damn this wild young Tell me, tell me, tell me when will I learn Damn this wild young heart

"Pretty In Pink" by Psychedelic Furs was released in 1981. Five years later, it inspired a movie of the same name starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer. The song was remixed for the re-release to have more Pop appeal.
"The Night Chicago Died" was written and recorded by the British group Paper Lace. They talk about Al Capone in the song, but got a lot of details wrong - understandable since they wrote it based on gangster movies.
