Jeff Buckley The Boy With The Thorn In His Side Lyrics

Last updated:

(Morrissey/J.Marr)
Originally performed by The Smiths. Jeff performed it live in his exhibition at Meltdown Festival, London, on July 1 1995.
The boy with the thorn in his side
Behind the hatred there lies
A murderous desire for love

How can they look into my eyes
And still they dont believe me
How can they hear me say those words
And still they dont believe me

And if they don't believe me now
Will they ever believe me?
And if they don't believe me now
Will they ever believe me?

The boy with the thorn in his side
Behind the hatred there lies
A plundering desire for love

How can they see the love in our eyes
And still they don't believe us
And after all this time
They don't want to believe us

And if they dont believe us now
Will they ever believe us?
And when you want to live
How do you start?
Where do you go?
Who do you know?
