Well I Wonder

Album: Meat Is Murder (1985)
  • 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 Writer/s: STEVEN MORRISSEY, JOHNNY MARR

  • Anbelar from Wolverhampton Don from San Antonio, he specifically says Meat is Murder was deliberately recorded in Liverpool
  • Dn from FloridaJohnny Marr can't form sentences well - his sentences come across as forced and contrived. It's clear who the real lyricist was.
  • Neil from Birmingham, UkI almost got a tattoo with 'This is the final stand of all I am' but chickened out. I can't listen to it much but a few months between listens really helps me see how good it is. It was on The Chain, a bit on BBC 6 music and the positive reaction was huge.
  • George from Baton Rouge, LaIncredible song. Very moving. Romantic.
  • Don from San Antonio, TxMy fave on this album! I like the part about moving back to Manchester to get the mood right. Whatever it takes.
