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

One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell

Always be careful
When you abuse the one you love
The hour or the day, no one can tell
But one day "goodbye" will be "farewell"
And you will never see the one you love again
You will never see the one you love again

I have been thinking, what, with my final brain cell
How Time grips you slyly in its spell
And before you know, "goodbye" will be "farewell"
And you will never see the one you love again
And the smiling children tell you that you smell
Well, just look at me - a Savage Beast -
I've got nothing to sell
And when I die, I want to go to Hell1
And that's when goodbye should be farewell

One day "goodbye" will be "farewell"
So grab me while we still have the time2

1 Another version of this verse when sung live at the end of the 2007 tour is "And when I die, I'm going straight to Hell".

2 On some dates: "So grab me while you still can"

Un giorno arrivederci sarÓ addio

Sta' sempre attento
Quando esageri con la persona che ami
L´ora o il giorno, nessuno può dirlo
ma un giorno un "arrivederci" sarà un "addio"
e non vedrai mai più la persona che ami
Non vedrai mai più la persona che ami

Ho pensato, non so come, con la mia ultima cellula cerebrale
a come il tempo ti tiene stretto, astutamente, nel suo incantesimo
e prima che te ne accorga, un "arrivederci" diventerà un "addio"
e non vedrai mai più la persona che ami
e dei bambini sorridenti ti diranno che puzzi
Beh, guarda me - una Bestia Feroce -
con niente da vendere
e quando morirò, voglio andare all'Inferno
Ecco quando un "arrivederci" dovrebbe diventare un "addio"

Un giorno un "arrivederci" diventerà un "addio"
Allora afferrami finché siamo ancora in tempo2

1 Un'altra versione di questo verso cantato dal vivo alla fine del tour 2007 è: "And when I die, I'm going straight to Hell" ("E quando morirò, me ne andrò dritto all'Inferno").

2 In alcuni concerti: "Afferrami finché puoi"
