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

I'm Playing Easy To Get

Don't dig for a metaphor
Has it not twigged with you yet?
And don't wonder why I'm still around
I'm just playing easy to get

Don't dig for a secondary meaning
At worst you might just find the first
And don't wonder why I'm standing over here
I'm just playing easy to get

Do I have to drop anchor like a sailor
To switch on the bulb in your head?
Do not frisk me, silence is your answer
I'm just playing easy to get

I'm so easy, maybe you've had me
If you had then you would not forget
When you see me between Cole and Cahuenga1
I'm just plain desperate

So don't waste time
Trying to get to know me
I'm yours, I'm yours
And don't waste time
With snappy conversation
I'm yours, everyone knows
I'm yours

Recorded in Janice Long Maida Vale Session, 2004 and aired for BBC Radio UK.

1 Cole and Cahuenga are main streets in Los Angeles, fairly close to where Morrissey used to live.  This is the map of the block in L.A. (source Google Maps).

Gioco a fare il facile da prendere

Non scavare alla ricerca di una metafora
Ancora non hai afferrato?
E non sorprenderti se sono ancora in giro
Sto solo facendo il "facile" da prendere

Non scavare alla ricerca di un secondo significato
Nel peggiore dei casi potresti solo trovare il primo
E non chiederti perché mai mi trovo da queste parti
Sto solo facendo il "facile" da prendere

Devo proprio gettare l'ancora come un marinaio
per accendere la lampadina nella tua testa?
Non perquisirmi, il silenzio è la tua risposta
Sto solo facendo il "facile" da prendere

Sono talmente "facile" che forse mi hai avuto
Se mi avessi avuto, non lo avresti dimenticato
Quando mi vedi in giro fra Cole e Cahuenga1
è perché sono completamente disperato

Allora non perdere altro tempo
cercando di conoscermi
Sono tuo, sono tuo
E non sprecare tempo
con conversazioni accattivanti
Sono tuo, lo sanno tutti
Sono tuo

Registrato nelle sessioni Maida Vale del Janice Long Show nel 2004 e andato in onda per la BBC Radio UK.

1 Cole e Cahuenga sono strade principali a Los Angeles, abbastanza vicine alla casa in cui Morrissey ha abitato fino al 2008. Questa la mappa della zona (fonte Google Maps).
