The Smiths I know it's over

Funny; entertaining; clever; good looking..but why are you all alone tonight? Morrissey knows...
After one is stripped of such endearing qualities, only "triumphs and charms" remain, grasping for survival and they certainly cannot be removed. Its so easy to (watch someone) perform show general emotional qualities, but true impotence of the heart is often one void of gentleness and kindness; qualities held only by relentless strength. Haunting and atmospheric lyrics that begin and end with the same line bring resignation; a dead end; there is no resolve when trying to love one who knows nothing about love; it is not natural or real; it is never the stuff of legends.

What is my larger issue in all this? Sometimes, the only way out, is the way through. Why go through it again? Hallellujah - or Amen? - Jen.

It's so easy to laugh, it's so easy to hate,
It takes strength to be gentle and kind.
Acabou, acabou, acabou...acabouu

  1. One lyric that struck a chord with me was actually when Jeff Buckley covered this:

    'you see, the sea wants to take me'.
