Artist/Band: Morrissey
Lyrics for Song: Late Night, Maudlin Street
Lyrics for Album: Viva Hate [1988]

Winter coming

Winter push on

(push on)

Oh, winter push on

Winter is so long

Winter moves on

The last night on Maudlin Street

Goodbye house, goodbye stairs

I was born here

And I was raised here, and

...I took some stick here

Love at first sight

It may sound trite

But it's true, you know

I could list the detail

Of everything you ever wore or said

Or how you stood the day

As we spent the last night

On Maudlin Street

"Goodbye house, forever!"

I never stole a happy hour

Around here

Where the world's ugliest boy

Became what you see

Here I am - the ugliest man

Oh, the last night on Maudlin Street

Truly I do love you

Oh, truly I do love you

When I sleep

With that picture of you framed beside my bed

Oh, it's childish and it's silly

But I think it's you in my room, by the bed

(...yes, I told you it was silly...)

And I know

I took strange pills

But I never meant to hurt you

Oh, truly I love you

Came home late one night

Everyone had gone to bed

But, you know

No-one stays up for you

I had sixteen stitches

All around my head

Oh, the last bus I missed to Maudlin Street

So he drove me home in the Van

Complaining, "Women only like me for my mind..."

Don't leave your torch behind

A powercut ahead; 1972, you know

And so we crept through the park

No, I cannot steal a pair of jeans off a clothesline

For you

But you ... without clothes

Oh, I could not keep a straight face

Me - without clothes ?

Well, a nation turns its back and gags...

I'm packed

I am moving house

A half-life disappears today

With "every hag waves me on"

(secretly wishing me gone)

Well, I will be soon

Ooh, I will be soon

I will be soon

I will be soon

Will be soon, I will be soon

Mmm ... I will be soon, I will be soon

There were bad times on Maudlin Street

They took you away in a police car

Inspector - don't you know ?

Don't you care ?

Don't you know - about Love ?

Your gran died

And your mother died

On Maudlin Street

In pain, and ashamed

With never time to say

those special things ... oh

I took the key from Maudlin Street

Well, it's only bricks and mortar !

Oh, oh, truly I love you

Oh, wherever you are

Wherever you are

Wherever you are

I hope you're singing now

Oh, I do hope

I hope you're singing now

Oh ...
