The one I love is standing near
The one I love is everywhere
And I can woo you, I can amuse you
But there is nothing I can do to make you mine

    I can choke myself to please you, and I can sink much lower than usual. But there's nothing I can do to make you mine. :/ Poor thingy.

    Worst intro of all Morrissey's records in my opinion. Terrible

    When I first heard Years of Refusal, I detested this track. Now I love this.

    One of those songs where I can't stop myself clicking the heart, even though I know it's already a loved track

    So so... Years of Refusal is definitely not a very good record.... despite the public's acclaim
