These Things Take Time
The Smiths Lyrics


Mine eyes have seen the glory of the sacred wunderkind
You took me behind a dis-used railway line
And said "I know a place where we can go
Where we are not known"
And then you gave me something that I won't forget too soon
But I can't believe that you'd ever care
And this is why you will never care
But these things take time
I know that I'm
The most inept
That ever stepped

I'm spellbound, oh...but a woman divides
And the hills are alive with celibate cries
But you know where you came from, you know where
You're going and you know where you belong
You said I was ill, and you were not wrong
But I can't believe that you'd ever care
And so, you will never care
But these things take time
And I know that I'm
The most inept
That ever stepped

Oh, the alcoholic afternoons
When we sat in your rooms
They meant more to me
Than any, than any living thing on earth
They had more worth
Than any living thing on earth
On earth, on earth, oh ...

Vivid and in your prime
You will leave me behind
You will leave me behind

I think this version is alot better than the one on Hatful of Hallow.

misterteaification

It's infinitely worse.

Nathaniel Renteria

The instrumental sounds awesome, and Morrissey makes it sound even better. I wish The Smiths had stayed together. There hasn't been a band like them since. ;-;

@Richard Sanchez true he (Marr) is great but a god? Watch your overstatement son..

Richard Sanchez

Johnny Marr is a god. That’s why

Angus Straford

upon coming back to this, i totally agree. The Smiths were a lot better ):

ikr

Angus Straford as good as his solo work is, nothing will ever be as good as the smiths

Angus Straford

check out morrisey's solo stuff, it's very good if not just as good as stuff by the smiths

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the sacred wunderkind 
You took me behind a dis-used railway line 
And said "I know a place where we can go 
Where we are not known" 
And then you gave me something that I won't forget too soon 
But I can't believe that you'd ever care 
And this is why you will never care 
But these things take time 
I know that I'm 
The most inept

I'm spellbound, oh...but a woman divides 
And the hills are alive with celibate cries 
But you know where you came from, you know where 
You're going and you know where you belong 
You said I was ill, and you were not wrong 
But I can't believe that you'd ever care 
And so, you will never care 
But these things take time 
And I know that I'm 
The most inept

They had more worth

On earth, on earth, oh ...

Vivid and in your prime 
You will leave me behind 
You will leave me behind
