I Started Something I Couldn't Finish
The Smiths Lyrics


The lanes were silent
There was nothing, no one, nothing around for miles
I doused our friendly venture
With a hard-faced
Three-word gesture

I started something
I forced you to a zone
And you were clearly
Never meant to go
Hair brushed and parted
Typical me, typical me
Typical me
I started something
And now I'm not too sure

I grabbed you by the guilded beams
Uh, that's what tradition means
And I doused another venture
With a gesture
That was absolutely vile

I started something
I forced you to a zone
And you were clearly
Never meant to go
Hair brushed and parted
Typical me, typical me
Typical me
I started something
And now I'm not too sure

I grabbed you by the guilded beams
Uh, that's what tradition means
And now eighteen months' hard labor
Seems fair enough

I started something
And I forced you to a zone
And you were clearly
Never meant to go
Hair brushed and parted
Typical me, typical me
Typical me
I started something
And now I'm not too sure

I started something
I started something
Typical me, typical me
Typical me, typical me
Typical me, typical me
Typical me
I started something
And now I'm not too sure

OK Stephen, do that again?

How can a band make me think so different about life with words only.

Lauta Mn

Cuz he hilled the blessed DJ

Lee Presley

Because you heard it and thought about it....

Lucas Montenegro

Or you are going through something in your life.

It's Morrissey with the words. It's because he'has a deep understanding of suffering that so many people relate to his lyrics.I live in his hometown, and, trust me, we're all acquainted with suffering.

Does anyone else dance around their room like a teenager again when listening to certain Smith's songs?!!!......it can't be just me! 🤦‍♀️

I dance, close my eyes and imagine myself back 15 years old, 30kgs lighter and with a quiff again.

David G

I don’t
