So, I am in the twilight of my youth
Not that I'm going to remember
And have you seen the moon tonight,
Is is full?

Still burning its embers
The people dancing in the corner,
They seem happy
But I am sad
I am still dancing int he coma
Of the drinks I just had
Does anybody want to take me home?
Does anybody want to take me home?

Take me to your house,
And I'll leave you alone
Of course I will
Of course I won't
It seems so tragic
But it disappears like magic
Like magic

Can you recommend an education or drugs
Because I am bored with you already
I'm on Broadway, and I think it's a parade
I'm covered in pieces of confetti
An I am in the twilight of my youth
Not that I am going to remember
Dancing and slowly and finding the truth

And it's covered in coma
All of these people in my life,
Well they seem so in love
Well, I am not
Memorizing my shoes in a cigarette shop
Does anybody want to take me home?
Does anybody want to take me home?
I'm kinda lonely, will you take me home?

Of course you will
Of course you won't
Of course I'm crass
It seems so tragic
Of course you will
Of course you won't
But I'll disappear
I'll disappear

Just like magic
Just like magic
Just like magic

    General Comment:love that song.
    doesn't anybody know the feeling he is singing of?
    everybody has that time in the youth, where you just feel alone and can't help being depressed. you feel like everything is unsignificant.. especially if you're lonely. and you want help. need help. to get out of this.

    but altogether, you would prefer to disappear. not having anymore problems. not having to fight with it anymore. just like magic.

    General Comment:These lyrics are incorrect.

    The lines "The people dancing in the corner of the city
    Happy, but I am sad"

    SHOULD BE:

    " The people dancing in the corner
    They seem happy, but I am sad "

    General Comment:It's really just impressive how he's made this song with passion for The Smiths/Morrissey. The melody, guitar sound, fadeout and fadein at the end. A bit more challenging than a mere cover, no?

    General Comment:Oh wow. I just heard this song for the first time 5 minutes ago and I got such a deja vu for The Smiths/Morrissey (to the comment above me).

    General Comment:i have always believed this song was about feeling out of place in the world, not about looking for love for the night. does anyone else agree

    General Comment:Why does this song not have more comments? I do believe it is one of his very best. It doesn't remind me of the Smiths at all by the way...just coz it has a jangly geetar bit doesn't mean he's rippin off the Smiths for God sake!

    General Comment:that used to be "my" song, for a very long time. its exactly what tagtraeumerin said.

    there are some moments in your life when you can't feel what love is, even though everyone seems happy and in love. you feel very out of place 'cause no one seems to understand how you feel. actually it looks like he despises all the happy people, yet there's a need to end this loneliness, you hope that someone will take you home...

    anyway, and that line "i'm in the twilight of my youth, not that i'm going to remember" is so true. no one realizes that the exact moment is gonna be so important in one's life.

    thank RA for this amazing piece of music, which is one of my all time favorites
