"My Life Is A Succession Of People Saying Goodbye" as written by Steven Morrissey and Alain Gordon Whyte....
My life is an
Endless succession
Of people saying goodbye
My life is
An endless succession
Of people saying goodbye
And what's left for me?
What's left for me?
At one time
The future it stretched out before me
But now it stretches behind me.
And all of the best things in life
Are behind glass
Money, jewelry and flesh
And what's left for me?
What's left for me?

    General CommentThe full title doesn't fit in, Uber Geek; it cuts off 'Goodbye'. Still should be fixed, even if the last word is lost.

    General Comment"Life is a series of collisions with the future; it is not the sum of what we have been, but what we yearn to be."

    My OpinionThis is the King of all Morrissey B-Sides. A deep reflection of years past and resulting impending death.
