Morrissey – I Will See You In Far Off Places lyrics

Nobody knows what human life is.
Why we come, why we go.
So why then do I know
I will see you,
I will see you in far off places?

The heart knows why I grieve
And yes one day I will close my eyes forever
But I will see you
I will see you in far off places.

Itґs so easy for us to sit together
But itґs so hard for our hearts to combine
And why?
And why?
Why? Why? Why? Why?

Destiny for some is to save lives
But destiny for some is to end lives
But there is no end
And I will see you in far off places.

If your god bestows protection upon you
And if the usa doesnґt bomb you
I believe I will see you somewhere safe
Looking to the camera, messing around
And pulling faces.

    A few months before this song was released on Morrissey's rott album, I had a vision of Morrissey. He was in ancient Egypt and "he" was a high priestess in a temple, leading a group of followers in a chant. I believe that Morrissey, in a past life, was a woman in Egypt, a worshipper of Bastet. When I first heard iwsyifop my earlier vision of Morrissey as a leader in the cult of Bastet was brought to mind. I believe that Morrissey will indeed see us in far off places, as he has in past lives.
