About The More You Ignore Me, the Closer I Get

"The More You Ignore Me, the Closer I Get" is a song by Morrissey, co-written by Boz Boorer released as a single in February 1994. It was taken from the then-unreleased Vauxhall and I album and was the first Morrissey single to be produced by Steve Lillywhite. The extra B-side "I'd Love To." features Kirsty MacColl on backing vocals. Reaching number eight on the UK Singles Chart, the single became Morrissey's first top-ten hit since "Interesting Drug" in 1989. It is also Morrissey's only charting single on the US Billboard Hot 100, reaching number 46, and it became his second and most recent Modern Rock Tracks number-one hit. The song also reached the top 50 in Canada, France and Ireland. It was most successful in Iceland, where it reached number two for three weeks.

The more you ignore me 
The closer I get 
You're wasting your time 
The more you ignore me 
The closer I get 
You're wasting your time 

I will be

The more you ignore me 
The closer I get 
You're wasting your time 
The more you ignore me 
The closer I get

Beware!
I bear more grudges 
Than lonely high court judges 
When you sleep 
I will creep 
Into your thoughts 
Like a bad debt 
That you can't pay 
Take the easy way 
And give in 
Yeah, and let me in 
Oh, let me in 
Oh let me
Oh, let me in 
It's war 
It's war 
It's war 
It's war 
It's war 
War 
War 
War 
War 
Oh, let me in 
Ah, the closer I get 
Ah, you're asking for it 
Ah, the closer I get 
Ooh, the closer I
