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. Although they had limited commercial success outside the UK while they were still together, and never released a single that charted higher than number 10 in their home country, The Smiths won a significant following, and remain cult an… more »

A sad fact widely known 
The most impassionate song 
To a lonely soul 
Is so easily outgrown 
But don't forget the songs 
That made you smile 
And the songs that made you cry 
When you lay in awe 
On the bedroom floor 
And said : "Oh, oh, smother me Mother"
No 
Rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring 
La 

The passing of time 
And all of its crimes 
Is making me sad again 
The passing of time 
And all of its sickening crimes 
Is making me sad again 
But don't forget the songs 
That made you cry 
And the songs that saved your life 
Yes, you're older now 
And you're a clever swine 
But they were the only ones who ever stood by you 

The passing of time leaves empty lives 
Waiting to be filled (the passing)
The passing of time 
Leaves empty lives 
Waiting to be filled 
I'm here with the cause 
I'm holding the torch 
In the corner of your room 
Can you hear me? 
And when you're dancing and laughing 
And finally living 
Hear my voice in your head 
And think of me kindly 
No 
Rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring 
La 
No 
Rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring 

Do you 
Love me like you used to? 
Oh 
Rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring 
La 

You're clever 
Everybody's clever nowadays 
You're clever 
Everybody's clever nowadays 

You are sleeping 
You do not want to believe 
You are sleeping 
You do not want to believe 
You are sleeping 
You do not want to believe 
You are sleeping
