Found found found
Found found found
Someone who's worth it
In this murkiness
Someone who's never
Seeming to be scheming

(Oh, but if I'd never found)
(Oh, but if I'd never found)
Oh, but if I'd never found

I do believe that
The more you give your love
And I do believe that
The more you give your trust
The more you give your trust
And the more you give your love
The more you're bound to lose
The more you're bound to lose

(Oh, but if I'd never found)
(Oh, but if I'd never found)
Somebody who wants to be
Who wants to be with me ...
...All the time


A sudden change of mood again in Kill Uncle, as the oddities of the two previous tracks give way to typical introspective Mozzery. A heavy musical backing lends weight to Morrissey's caustic warning of the dangers of trust. Rumour has it that this song was inspired by the friendship of Morrissey and Michael Stipe, lead singer of R.E.M., something which Morrissey denies.
He still finds time to steal a line from a Noel Coward song, "If Love Were All", in which Coward sings "...I do believe that the more you give your love, and I do believe that the more you offer trust ... the more you're bound to lose".
Morrissey cannot resist adding a lyrical twist at the end of this track, as the addendum "...All the time" implies that already he is tiring of the relationship.
