WELL I WONDER

Well I wonder
Do you hear me when you sleep ?
I hoarsely cry
Oh ...

Well I wonder
Do you see me when we pass ?
I half die ...
Oh ...

Please keep me in mind
Please keep me in mind

Gasping - but somehow still alive
This is the fierce last stand of all I am

Gasping - dying - but somehow still alive
This is the final stand of all I am

Please keep me in mind

Well I wonder
Well I wonder
Please keep me in mind
Keep me in mind
Keep me in mind


This strangely ignored richly evocative song provides proof of the quixotic singer's newly improved vocal talents. Effortlessly handling the falsetto parts, Morrissey's voice does wonders to a song laden with dismal rain and mellifluous acoustic guitar.
Focusing on the album's continuing theme of desperation and loneliness, its positioning on the album is ideal, sandwiched as it is between the rattling "Nowhere Fast" and the ridiculously over-the-top "Barbarism Begins At Home".
