Wor(l)d of Morrissey
  We're back! Welcome to the world of Morrissey's lyrics.

This site and all of the work made to keep it updated during the last 25 years are dedicated to my beloved friend MaCa65 who suddenly left this lonely planet
and me without words. Throughout the short stretch of time that we have been given to spend together as close friends, we shared many things,
thoughts, passions and some bits of Life. Back in 1983, together we discovered a band called The Smiths and together since then, we followed Morrissey's career
as one of the most influential and inspiring singer/artist/poet of our age. Maca65 has always been a strong supporter since when I first launched WoM,
so this is and will always be entirely for you, my friend. -- David

Angel, Angel, Down We Go Together

Angel, Angel
Don't take your life tonight

I know they take
And that they take in turn
And they give you nothing real
For yourself in return
But when they've used you
And they've broken you
And wasted all your money
And cast your shell aside
And when they've bought you
And they've sold you
And they've billed you for the pleasure
And they've made your parents cry
I will be here
I will be here
Believe me

Angel, Angel
Don't take your life
Some people have got no pride
They do not understand
The Urgency of life
But I love you more than life
I love you more than life
I love you more than life
I love you more than life

The song title, in keeping with the majority of the other tracks on Viva Hate, is borrowed, this time from a 1969s film called "Angel, Angel, Down We Go". Apparently Morrissey has admitted that this song is about Johnny Marr, continuing in the underlying Smiths breakup theme of the album.

Angelo, angelo mio, insieme affonderemo

Angelo, angelo mio
Non toglierti la vita stanotte

Lo so che ti portano via tutto
E che lo fanno uno alla volta
E che non ti danno nulla di vero
In cambio
Ma quando ti avranno usato
E ti avranno rovinato
E buttato tutto il tuo denaro
E gettato via la tua carcassa
E quando ti avranno comprato
E poi venduto
E ti avranno messo in mostra per il loro piacere
E fatto piangere i tuoi cari
Io sarò qui
Io sarò qui

Angelo, angelo mio
Non toglierti la vita
Certa gente non ha orgoglio
Loro non comprendono
l'Urgenza della vita
Ma io ti amo più della vita
Io ti amo più della vita
Io ti amo più della vita
Io ti amo più della vita

Il titolo, come la maggioranza dei brani che compaiono su Viva Hate, è preso in prestito da un film degli anni Settanta chiamato "Angel, Angel, Down We Go". Sembra che Morrissey abbia confessato che questo testo parli di Johnny Marr, in pieno accordo col tema latente di tutto l'album: lo scioglimento degli Smiths.

Album: Viva Hate
Anno di pubblicazione: 1988
