I WON'T SHARE YOU

I won't share you, no
I won't share you
With the drive
And ambition
The zeal I feel
This is my time

The note I wrote
As she read, she said
"Has the Perrier gone
Straight to my head
Or is life sick and cruel, instead ?"

"YES !"
No - no - no - no - no - no
No - no - no - no - no - no
Oh ...

I won't share you, no
I won't share you
With the drive
And the dreams inside
This is my time

Life tends to come and go
That's OK
As long as you know
Life tends to come and go
As long as you know
Know, know, know, know, know
Know, know, know, know
Oh ...

I won't share you, no
I won't share you
With the drive
And the dreams inside
This is my time

I want the freedom and I want the guile
I want the freedom and the guile
Oh, life tends to come and go
As long as you know
Know, know, know, know
Know, know, know, know
Oh ...

I won't share you, no
I won't share you
I'll see you somewhere
I'll see you sometime
Darling ...


A song I consider to be over-rated, especially considering it is the last song ever released by The Smiths (as part of an album, obviously). Bland lyrics are sung over an acoustic guitar part that for some reason I just don't think is that beautiful.
