William It Was Really Nothing
The Smiths Lyrics


The rain falls hard on a humdrum town
This town has dragged you down
Oh, the rain falls hard on a humdrum town
This town has dragged you down
Oh, no, and everybody's got to live their life
And God knows I've got to live mine
God knows I've got to live mine
William, William it was really nothing
William, William it was really nothing
It was your life

How can you stay with a fat girl who'll say
"Oh, would you like to marry me?
And if you like you can buy the ring"
She doesn't care about anything
Would you like to marry me?
And if you like you can buy the ring
I don't dream about anyone except myself
Oh, William, William it was really nothing
William, William

The Smiths is the soundtrack to my life, a miserable one.

@Grover Bennington Same age here. I knew it before I felt it, so it didn't truly sink in until quite recently. But once it sunk in.......😌

Life can be...beautiful.
But anyway i like this song very much, especially the line:
"I don't dream about anyone....except myseeeeellllfffff"

Grover Bennington

Their music is a good replica of my life because I'm not happy and I'm not sad.

... Straight off to listen to that too 😀. How people don't recognise him (pre madness) as a hilarious lyricist I'll never understand.

You're in some really good headspace. Ideally you'll stay there.
