I WANT THE ONE I CAN'T HAVE Lyrics

Artist: The Smiths
Album: Meat Is Murder

On the day that your mentality
Decides to try to catch up with your biology

Come round ...
'Cause I want the one I can't have
And it's driving me mad
It's all over, all over, all over my face


On the day that your mentality
Catches up with your biology


I want the one I can't have
And it's driving me mad
It's all over, all over, all over my face


A double bed
And a stalwart lover for sure
These are the riches of the poor


A double bed
And a stalwart lover for sure
These are the riches of the poor


And I want the one I can't have
And it's driving me mad
It's all over, all over my face


A tough kid who sometimes swallows nails
Raised on Prisoner's Aid
He killed a policeman when he was
Thirteen
And somehow that really impressed
Me
And it's written all over my face


Oh, these are the riches of the poor
These are the riches of the poor


I want the one I can't have
And it's driving me mad
It's written all over my face


On the day that your mentality
Catches up with your biology


And if you ever need self-validation
Just meet me in the alley by the
Railway station
It's all over my face
Oh ...

i think this song is about an illicit affair ... someone he wants but cannot have ... he's impressed by things that are inherently naughty and knows it. he has a dialogue with her, and wants her to know that he'll be ready when she's ready even though he knows it is wrong.

Becca, i'm sorry to inform you but Morrissey is in fact gay...so "she" should be "he" Craig you can suck my non existent cock and matthew, you seem to be the smartest one yet.

On second thought, Morrissey is not gay. Craig, I'm sorry for what I said. Matthew, I can't really say whether you're smart or not, but my validation is probably unimportant to you anyway! Love for all! -<3 - Leia. _Girly-Girl_ :-) Peace!

Leia- Morrissey is_____ and becca, im sure the song was about a "they"
Craig.. not to sure what to say about that, maybe you're in middle school and that's how you categorize things. but what ever.. do luv you all equally too:)
