Information

Stephen Street's wife calls "Steven" in the song (from Mozipedia):

"Sarah, was visiting the studio that day with our baby son, William. Since she was the only woman in the studio, we asked her to do it. So that’s my wife shouting “Steven!” towards the end. Afterwards Morrissey told me it put a chill down his spine every time he heard it.’"

Lyrics

I'm writing this to say
In a gentle way
Thank you, but no
I will live my life as I
Will undoubtedly die, alone

I'm writing this to say
In a gentle way
Thank you
I will live my life as I, oh
For whether you stay or you stray

An inbuilt guilt catches up with you
And as it comes around to your place
At 5 a.m., wakes you up
And it laughs in your face
