"Pashernate Love" as written by and Day/morrissey/whyte....
Pashernate love
In any form
Whether real or a dream

Pashernate love
Could make your system erupt
Into wild blisters and boils

Oh, as for me
It still doesn't understand me
It wouldn't lay one single finger on me

Pashernate love
Could make your Grandmother zoom
Roller-skating back from the grave

Pashernate love
Could make your old Daddy feel
Like he may have a reason to live

Oh, as for me
It still doesn't understand me
And it wouldn't lay one single finger on me

I'm always there
It's always elsewhere

Whoah, Pashernate love
Oh, where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?

    General CommentI think the song just takes a slap at love. Pashernate is definitely intentional. Its about what love does to people but it never finds him.

    General CommentYes, it's titled 'Pashernate Love'.

    I think Morrissey is basically talking about how love can supposedly do all these fantastic things, bringing people back from the dead and so forth, but "it wouldn't lay one single finger on me".

    "I'm always there, it's always elsewhere" suggests that Morrissey's there, waiting, but love just seems to be something that evades him.

    General Commentbut is this an intentional botch of the word passionate?

    maybe he's so far removed from paasionate love that he can't even pronounce it right #))

    My InterpretationThis song is all about how ovverrated love is, but despite this, the protagonist keeps looking for it.
