Best sentence in Morrissey-song?

Does anyone have a favourite Morrissey-sentence from a song.

Here are some of mine:

There's too many people/Planning your downfall

So, the choice I have made/may seem strange to you/
but who asked you anyway? /it's my life /to wreck /my own way

"Oh Christ, another stifled Friday night!"

Compare the best of their days/With the worst of your days/ You won't win


...with an N.
were you and he lovers?

our frank and open deep conversations they get me nowhere.

with the world weight resting on your shoulders, you're gonna need someone on your side.

there's gonna be some trouble.

i want to start from before the beginning.

there's too many people planning your downfall.

america, your head's too big.

nobody knows that human life is.

i'm doing very well.

Your boyfriend, he/went down on one knee /well, could it be /he's only got one knee? :)

Caught in your headlights/like a frightened animal/you must remember.

So one day, if you're bored/by all means call me/because you can do/but you might not get through.

And you, my invalid friend/you slam the receiver when you say/"If I had your limbs for a day/I would steam away."

Something I have learned/if there is one thing in life I've observed/it's that everybody's got somebody/oh no, not me.

etc. etc. etc.

There are bunches I love, but the ones sticking out to me now are:

Is evil just something you are, or something you do?

You are repressed but you're remarkably dressed.

Scratch my name on your arm with a fountain pen, this means you really love me.

I never wanted to kill, I am not naturally evil.

It may all end tomorrow or it could go on forever, in which case I'm doomed.

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.
I decree today that life is simply taking and not giving.

I tried living in the real world instead of a shell, but I was bored before I even began.

Does anybody feel the way I do?

And so on... They truly are too many to mention.

rejection is one thing but rejection from a fool is cruel

I've could've mentioned your name,[coul've] dragged you in
guild by implication, by ascocation
I always stay true to you
in my own sick way
I always stay true to you

other conquered love, but I ran [ smiths song]
I sat in my room and I drew up a plan
but planns can fall true, so often they do


in every song is almost a great line

I've seen this happen in others peoples lives
and now it happens in mine [Smiths]

Jeanne , there's ice on the sink where we bath

I'll stop

but best sentence, pfff, that's a toughie, and personal

'don't rake up my mistakes, I know exactly what they are':highfive:

I forgot:

I can kill standing still/
It’s easy

I attack from the back/
Because it’s easy

I burst into public bars /
And I throw my weight around/
And no one can even see me

She lives for the written word, and people come second or possibly third.

Living longer than I had intended

I once thought that time accentuates despair, but now I don't actually care

Amidst concrete and clay and general decay, Nature must still find a way.

All of These Things Take Time.

I know it's over, and it never really began, but it my heart, it was so real.

I dreamt about you last night, and I fell out of bed twice.

I smoke cause I'm hoping for an early death and I need to cling to something.

and lots more.


Nobody's nothing
I can't believe nobody has mentioned the remarkable line:

"A man who slits throats, has time on his hands. AND I'M GOING TO GET YOU!"


Nobody's nothing
It's threads like these that make me appreciate just how good his words are, i'm always aware of how good they make me and others feel but sometimes you take it for granted and then i log on and find a thread like this...



1.And people like you/make me feel so old inside/please die
2.Because people like you /make me feel so tired/when will you die?
3.Come!Come!Come-nuclear bomb!

'But don't forget the songs
That made you cry
And the songs that saved your life'


I also love this line:Yes,you're older now/And you're a clever swine


My eyes are now open
I doused our friendly venture
With a hard-faced
Three-word gesture :D:D

How time grips you syly in it's spell.


My secret's my enzyme.
It's time the tale were told of how you took a child and you made him old.
