"Black Cloud" as written by and Steven Patrick/boorer Morrissey....
The one I love
Is standing near
The one I love
Is everywhere
I can woo you
I can amuse you
But there is nothing I can do to make you mine
Black cloud, black cloud

The one I love
Roosts in the mind
Can snap this spell
Or increase hell
I can chase you
And I can catch you
But there is nothing I can do to make you mine
Black cloud, black cloud
Oh, black cloud
Oh, black cloud

I play the game
Of favorites now
I can I must
I will I do
I can please you
Or I can freeze you out
But there is nothing I can do to make you mine
Black cloud, black cloud, black cloud
I can choke myself to please you
And I can sink much lower than usual
But there's nothing I can do
To make you mine

    General CommentThe first track from Years of Refusal to grab me.

    I take the lyrics at face value, about wanting someone and never getting, resulting in black cloud - literally floating above one’s self.

    General CommentPretty self-thorough. Agh, this song reminds me of things I wish to escape but I love it so.
