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

That's How People Grow Up

I was wasting my time
Trying to fall in love
Disappointment came to me and
Booted me and bruised and hurt me

That's how people grow up
That's how people grow up

I was wasting my time
Looking for love
Someone must look at me
and see their sunlit dream

I was wasting my time
Praying1 for love
For a love that never comes from
Someone who does not exist and2

That's how people grow up
That's how people grow up

Let me live before I die
Not me, not I!

I was wasting my life
Always thinking about myself
Someone on the deathbed said
"There are other sorrows too"

I was driving my car
I crashed and broke my spine
So yes, there are things worse in life than
Never being someone's sweetie

That's how people grow up
That's how people grow up

As for me I'm ok
For now anyway

1 "waiting for love" as sung in David Letterman's Show June, 29 2007.

2 "someone who does not acquaint me", as sung in the earlier live version.

On "Greatest Hits", the beginning of this song is marked by Kristeen Young's angelic voice, who also toured with Morrissey throughout 2007 and appeared on David Letterman's Show as special choralist.

E' cosė che le persone crescono

Sprecavo il mio tempo
Cercando di innamorarmi
La delusione arrivò e
Mi prese a calci, mi lasciò i lividi e mi ferì

E' così che le persone crescono
E' così che le persone crescono

Sprecavo il mio tempo
Cercando l'amore
Qualcuno deve guardarmi
E vedere il suo sogno illuminato

Sprecavo il mio tempo
Pregando che arrivasse l'amore
Quell'amore che non giunge mai
Da chi non esiste neppure

E' così che le persone crescono
E' così che le persone crescono

Lascia che io viva prima di morire
Non io, io no!

Sprecavo la mia vita
Pensando sempre a me stesso
Qualcuno sul letto di morte disse:
"Ci sono anche altri dolori"

Guidavo in macchina
Ho avuto un incidente e mi sono rotto la spina dorsale
Quindi sì, ci sono cose peggiori nella vita che
non diventare mai il tesoro di qualcuno

E' così che le persone crescono
E' così che le persone crescono

In quanto a me, va bene comunque
Per adesso

1 "waiting for love" nella versione eseguita al David Letterman's Show il 29 giugno 2007.
