Just a masterpiece. For some reason I don't understand, the way Morrissey sings these lines twists me up:
"Every jammy Stressford poet
Loafing oafs in all-night chemists
Loafing oafs in all-night chemists."
It almost sounds desperate. Like he's looking back on his life before fame & he's glad to have made it, but he misses that old life as well. So much longing. "Jammy Stressford poet", I love that, the sense of being really lucky in some ways but still having the same problems and being 100% Old Trafford at the end of the day. I don't think this is a song about a relationship. I think it is about having a long, long fight with depression and giving yourself reasons to hold on.
