HALF A PERSON Lyrics - The Smiths

Review The Song (3)



Call me morbid, call me pale
I've spent six years on your trail
Six long years
On your trail

Call me morbid, call me pale
I've spent six years on your trail
Six full years of my life on your trail


And if you have five seconds to spare
Then I'll tell you the story of my life :
Sixteen, clumsy and shy
I went to London and I,
I booked myself in at the Y ... W.C.A.
I said : "I like it here - can I stay ?
I like it here - can I stay ?
Do you have a vacancy
For a Back-scrubber?"

She was left behind, and sour
And she wrote to me, equally dour
She said : "In the days when you were
Hopelessly poor
I just liked you more..."


And if you have five seconds to spare
Then I'll tell you the story of my life :
Sixteen, clumsy and shy
I went to London and I,
I booked myself in at the Y ... W.C.A.
I said : "I like it here - can I stay ?
I like it here - can I stay ?
And do you have a vacancy
For a Back-scrubber ?"


Call me morbid, call me pale
I've spent too long on your trail
Far too long
Chasing your tail
Oh ...


And if you have five seconds to spare
Then I'll tell you the story of my life :
Sixteen, clumsy and shy
That's the story of my life
Sixteen, clumsy and shy
The story of my life
That's the story of my life
That's the story of my life
That's the story of my life
The story of my life
That's the story of my life
That's the story of my life
That's the story of my life
That's the story of my life
That's the story of my life
That's the story ...

I actually liked your review better than the song. Yes, the song has meaning but you put the meaning into a real situation which is deep. I'm happy you pulled through and doing better. Life is good...

A Long Time Ago... | Reviewer: John D. | 10/5/10

Half A Person reminds me of a girl I had no choice but to leave behind.. After years of trying to save her, I was forced to leave her to her fate of heroine abuse. We met when we were in our early teens. We lived in the same apartment complex. At the time she was mostly "clumsy and shy", albeit a little strange... I suppose she was just doomed from the start. Her home life and the local community had traumatized her beyond hope... Can't say I didn't have my own struggles at the time, but I managed to pull through... I wish I could have said the same for her... Despite the subtle humourus undertones of the song, it has way of deeply touching me. The girl is not forgotten, and neither is this great work of art.
