The only possibility I can think of is "One of Our Own," maybe. It was apparently the working title of a song from the Viva Hate era that never saw the light of day, or something along those lines. It is mentioned on Stefan Krix's page here. It's anyone's guess whether lyrics might have been written and then reused over 20 years later, or if just the title was recycled.I don't believe there are many (any?) incidences of Morrissey using lyrics for unreleased songs years later.

Yes, I'm inclined to agree; the lyrics definitely read like latter-day Morrissey.Nice catch.
Impossible to know, but the lyrics are in the more on-the-nose style of recent years. No Americanisms that would make it easier to tell.
In any case, Morrissey liked the title enough to resurrect it over a quarter century later!
If I'm recalling the Mozipedia correctly, I Know Who I Love and Kit were recorded during the album proper and the first version of It's Hard at the B-side sessions. So it's curious that these circulated together but I Know Who I Love didn't. For that matter - if these originally came from an apocryphal DAT tape upstream - it would seem plausible that Hanratty and Nightmare (two other Cobrin compositions from the B-side session) and The Leeches Go On Removing might have been on it. Goddard is the only person to ever have seemed to acknowledge hearing I Know Who I Love.
Any road, thanks for these baubles, Peter. Much appreciated!
Having heard the Miraval acoustic demos, I reviewed the individual entries on Passions Just Like Mine (the versions section) and noted there are unheard instrumental versions for practically each song. I would posit that what we heard were demos to get Morrissey's guide vocal. The unheard instrumentals are perhaps the more instrumentally expansive next step, I.e. the transitional step to what was re-recorded at Hook End. And perhaps these are less apt to see light of day because Morrissey isn't featured.
Just speculation, but it seems plausible. Then again, the leaked version of You Must Please Remember sounded very complete - as did the officially released masters of Honey You Know Where To Find Me and You Should Have Been Nice To Me. Unfortunately, the historical record was never very assiduously maintained when it came to the solo recording sessions.
Same here. Thanks everyone for everything.
On a fantastic thread like this, it feels like the (very) old days of Moz-solo. Just talking about the music.
