The Smiths

The Smiths were an English alternative rock band, formed in Manchester in 1982. Based on the song writing partnership of vocalist Morrissey and guitarist Johnny Marr, the band also included bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce. Critics have called them the most important alternative rock band to emerge from the British independent music scene of the 1980s. The group was signed to the independent record label Rough Trade Records, on which they released four studio albums, several compilations, and numerous non-LP singles.

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the sacred wunderkind 
You took me behind a dis-used railway line 
And said "I know a place where we can go 
Where we are not known" 
And then you gave me something that I won't forget too soon 
But I can't believe that you'd ever care 
And this is why you will never care 
But these things take time 
I know that I'm 
The most inept 
That ever stepped 

I'm spellbound, oh...but a woman divides 
And the hills are alive with celibate cries 
But you know where you came from, you know where 
You're going and you know where you belong 
You said I was ill, and you were not wrong 
But I can't believe that you'd ever care 
And so, you will never care 
But these things take time 
And I know that I'm 
The most inept 
That ever stepped 

Oh, the alcoholic afternoons 
When we sat in your rooms 
They meant more to me 
Than any, than any living thing on earth 
They had more worth 
Than any living thing on earth 
On earth, on earth, oh ... 

Vivid and in your prime 
You will leave me behind 
You will leave me behind
