Morrissey – Break Up The Family lyrics

The strange logic in your clumsiest line
(it stayed, it stayed) it stayed emblazoned on my mind
You say, break up the family
And let's begin to live our lives

I want to see all my friends tonight
It wasn't youth, it wasn't life
Born old, sadly wise
Resigned (well, we were)
To ending our lives
I'm so glad to grow older
To move away from those awful times
I want to see all my friends tonight

Yes, you found love, but you weren't
At peace with your life
Home late, full of hate
Despise the ties that bind
I'm so glad to grow older
To move away from those younger years
I'm in love for the first time
And I don't feel bad

Let me see all my old friends
Let me put my arms around them
Cause I really do love them
Now does that sound mad?
Captain of games, solid framed
I stood on the touchline
Hailstones, driven home
In a car - no brakes? I don't mind
I'm so glad to grow older
To move away from those darker years
Oh, I'm in love for the first time
And I don't feel bad
So wish me luck my friends
Goodbye
So wish me luck again
Goodbye
Wish me luck my friends
Goodbye
Mmm... Wish me luck, my friends
Goodbye
Ahh...
Ahh...
