"Angel, Angel, Down We Go Together" as written by and Steven Patrick/street Morrissey....
Angel, angel
Don't take your life tonight
I know they take
And that they take in turn
And they give you nothing real
For yourself in return

But when they've used you
And they've broken you
And they've wasted all your money
And cast your shell aside

And when they've bought you
And they've sold you
And they've billed you for the pleasure
And they've made your parents cry
I will be here
Oh, believe me
will be here
...believe me

Angel, don't take your life
Some people have got no pride
They do not understand
The urgency of life
But I love you more than life
I love you more than life
I love you more than life
I love you more than life

    General CommentFrom the Moz himself:

    "It was written with Johnny Marr in mind and it is the only song that I have written with him in mind, post Smiths. I saw him in the music industry being used and being pushed around and being manipulated and I felt I was in a situation and I thought, 'Look at me, look at you - it's the same, it's a mess and this is as far as we will go' which wasn't quite true in the end but at that moment it felt pretty despairing for both, I felt despairing for both of us but I was wrong."
    - Morrissey on "Angel, Angel Down We Go Together", 1992

    General CommentThis song is beautiful. God- words cant even describe how much I love it... if you ever have "not-so-good" thoughts, just listen to this song.. it restores some love for yourself... like ally8star said "at least morrissey loves me."

    General Commentwell, like everybody, I love this song, its amazing, sometimes I need to hear it to keep going.
    but also, I think thast maybe, Morrissey thought about a prostitute when he wrote the song... a beautiful girl that someone made her do things taht she didn´t want to.
    she going to take her life away....and he sing that song.çIt could be... right?
