Smiler with Knife - Morrissey

See in me the side of you

That sometimes makes you jump with fright
Smiler with knife it's your big night

Sinking bed, all warm and clean
Only sadness waits for me
Smiler with knife you're just in time
You're just in time

Press the blade against my skin
Never to make love again
Smiler with knife it's alright

Surrender will I am before you
I am sick to death of life
Smiler with knife, alight

If such things weren't meant to be
Then they would never come to me
Smiler, oh, don't worry so

Slamming one shots, gentle pain
Someone calling out my name
Sex and love are not the same
Are not the same

Time has frittered long and slow
All I am and was will go
But where to and why now?

When my last breath falls away
Smiler, trust me when I say: "You'll be OK" "You'll be OK"
