Testo della canzone Late Night Maudlin Street di Morrissey
Album: Viva Hate
Winter coming
Winter push on
(push on)
Oh, winter push on
Winter is so long
Winter moves on
The last night on Maudlin Street
Goodbye house, goodbye stairs
I was born here
And I was raised here, and
…I took some stick here
Love at first sight
It may sound trite
But it’s true, you know
I could list the detail
Of everything you ever wore or said
Or how you stood the day
As we spent the last night
On Maudlin Street
Goodbye house, forever!
I never stole a happy hour
Around here
Where the world’s ugliest boy
Became what you see
Here I am – the ugliest man
Oh, the last night on Maudlin Street
Truly I do love you
Oh, truly I do love you
When I sleep
With that picture of you framed beside my bed
Oh, it’s childish and it’s silly
But I think it’s you in my room, by the bed
(…yes, I told you it was silly…)
And I know
I took strange pills
But I never meant to hurt you
Oh, truly I love you
Came home late one night
Everyone had gone to bed
But, you know
No-one stays up for you
I had sixteen stitches
All around my head
Oh, the last bus I missed to Maudlin Street
So he drove me home in the Van
Complaining, Women only like me for my mind…
Don’t leave your torch behind
A powercut ahead; 1972, you know
And so we crept through the park
No, I cannot steal a pair of jeans off a clothesline
For you
But you … without clothes
Oh, I could not keep a straight face
Me – without clothes ?
Well, a nation turns its back and gags…
I’m packed
I am moving house
A half-life disappears today
With every hag waves me on
(secretly wishing me gone)
Well, I will be soon
Ooh, I will be soon
I will be soon
I will be soon
Will be soon, I will be soon
Mmm … I will be soon, I will be soon
There were bad times on Maudlin Street
They took you away in a police car
Inspector – don’t you know ?
Don’t you care ?
Don’t you know – about Love ?
Your gran died
And your mother died
On Maudlin Street
In pain, and ashamed
With never time to say
those special things … oh
I took the key from Maudlin Street
Well, it’s only bricks and mortar !
Oh, oh, truly I love you
Oh, wherever you are
Wherever you are
Wherever you are
I hope you’re singing now
Oh, I do hope
I hope you’re singing now
