I'm never going back
I'm never going back to you
I'm never gonna see you again
I'm never gonna dig out your picture
I'm never gonna look you up someday

Life is very short
And you don't love me anymore
So, I'm never gonna see you again

I'm never gonna write you a letter
'Never gonna call you on the phone

'Never gonna drive by your house
'Never gonna catch you coming outside

'Never gonna walk up your walk
And ring your bell
Feel you fall into my arms
No, I'm never gonna see you
No, I'm never gonna see you
No, I'm never gonna see you again

You're gone for good

    General CommentYou don't love me anymore, so I'm going to leave you alone. I'm never going to do anything to try to get you back even though I'm dying to... I accept you're gone. Perfect lyrics, perfect music, just Morphine.

    Very hard to hold the tears every time I heard this part
    "Never gonna walk up your walk
    And ring your bell
    Feel you fall into my arms"

    General CommentEach time I remember that... it breaks my heart...ever more. Love-Fate is stronger than us. 'gonna miss you baby, somewhat... 'Never been your divinity.
    Farewell my sweet Lord. Ain't my bitch now. Yet be happy... I once was... And will again... ;-)

    General CommentEven though it's been 19 years and I in no manner feel this way any more, every time I hear this song, it briefly invokes the feelings I had after being dumped all those years ago. (empathy with the me of 19-years ago, I suppose) The lyrics and execution of the song are just perfect. The melancholy of knowing you have to move on, and just trying to convince yourself. Morphine nailed it.
