I always thought part of IWSY was sung from the Johnny-figure's POV (or what Moz imagines his POV to be) - the one who has the "drive and the dreams inside", not Moz himself. So I hear that line as:I want the freedom and the guile
I feel like I've never quite understood the line.
He really does come out with some evasive, laddish twaddle when he wants to.
Beautiful song, extremely sad and revealing sentiment about losing someone you love, and he says "I'm not arsed about it."
Poor Moz, f***ing hell.
I guess it could be seen that way, but it's not how I hear it.But the sentiment "I Won't Share You" would seem overbearing and controlling from Johnny's point of view. It's downright creepy and oppressive. There are two sides here.
Oh, I see and you were present for this relationship then asked Morrissey what it's about and he told you and explained why he never sings the last 2 lines. Fan fiction is ridiculous.Sure, not ever song is about Marr - but out of all them, this one is very tough to deny, as it's such a blatant summation of their relationship. It's also telling that Morrissey never sings the final lines when he plays it live now - "I'll see you somewhere, I'll see you sometime, Darling". Probably because he has no intention of ever seeing Johnny again, and whatever warmth he once felt towards him has by now calcified into non-existence.
No, but this one obviously is. Have you read Autobio? Have you read any Moz interviews concerning the aftermath of the Smiths split? It's all there. He thought Johnny was lured away by dreams of greater fame and fortune, wanting more of the spotlight without the Mozzer 'millstone' - he's said it, this song says it too. You don't have to bring your obsessive Marr-hatred into every single thread.Why do people NEED to believe M had this homo fixation or any fixation on Marr? No every song is not about him.
