"Now My Heart Is Full" as written by Steven Morrissey and Martin James Boorer....
There's gonna be some trouble
A whole house will need re-building
And everyone I love in the house
Will recline on an analyst's couch quite soon
Your father cracks a joke
And in the usual way
Empties the room

Tell all of my friends
I don't have too many
Just some rain-coated lovers' puny brothers
Dallow, Spicer, Pinkie, Cubitt
Rush to danger
Wind up nowhere
Patric Doonan, raised to wait
I'm tired again, I've tried again, and

Now my heart is full
Now my heart is full
And I just can't explain
So I won't even try to

Dallow, Spicer, Pinkie, Cubitt
Every jammy Stressford poet
Loafing oafs in all-night chemists
Loafing oafs in all-night chemists
Underact, express depression
Ah, but Bunnie I loved you
I was tired again
I've tried again, and

Now my heart is full
Now my heart is full
And I just can't explain
So I won't even try to

Could you pass by?
Could you pass by?
Could you pass by?
Could you pass by?
Could you pass by?
Oh

Now my heart is full
Now my heart is full
And I just can't explain
So so
So so so so so

    General CommentIt's about when the person you love goes and gets married to someone else behind your back.

    General CommentLike all great and ambiguous songs, the meaning might change for you a number of times throughout life. Right now for me, it's a message to all those you love who are too concerned with their own selfish minutia to notice how desperate and over-taxed you are by their life drama and/or demands. It's what you say right before you split the whole program and leave them to fend for themselves with a parting word of advice and a deft but vague excuse...

    My InterpretationAs we all can see, Moz name a few fiction characters here, some of them belong to Brighton Rock as I read a few comments ago. He also talks about bad communication with people he love "in the house" (family, probably). So it seems to me that hes talking about loneliness, and feeling good about it. He prefers to be alone, the books are his friends and he doesn't even want to try and explain that to a society that points a finger to every anti-social person that exists.

    General Commentsince high school i wondered who dallow, spicer, pinkie & cubitt were...they are characters from brighton rock which i recently saw. i always thought that the song was about someone contemplating suicide at a dysfunctional family get together, but with the reference to brighton rock, it's probably more to do with that. i thought maybe it was from rose's point of view, but then again she wasnt really friends with pinkie's friends as far as i know.

    General CommentI never really thought about this song being about suicide. Although I do agree that it seems to be about the characters in Brighton Rock don't you ever find yourself falling in love and being swept away by a book or a movie or even a song? In my opinion this song is about that experience. In fact when I listen to this song, it happens to me...
