There's a place in the sun,
For anyone who has the will to chase one
And I think I've found mine,
Yes, I do believe I have found mine, so

Close your eyes,
And think of someone,
You physically admire
And let me kiss you,
Let me kiss you

I've zig-zagged all over America,
And I cannot find a safety haven
Say, would you let me cry,
On your shoulder
I've heard that you'll will try anything twice

Close your eyes,
And think of someone,
You physically admire,
And let me kiss you,
Let me kiss you

But then you open your eyes,
And you see someone,
That you physically despise
But my heart is open
My heart is open to you

    General Commentwhen i first bought this record, this was my favorite song, but it soon became hard to listen to because it was so self-pitying, whether tongue in cheek or not, without being clever (which is usually the saving grace of other morrissey songs in this vein). but i just heard this song while listening to 'live at earls court' and it was such a joy to hear it again for the first time in a few years.

    i don't know if this is something i noticed before but never processed, or whether i'm only just now realizing it, but the chorus of this song is a guitar passage. that guitar riff is what endeared me to the song to begin with, but it just now struck me as incredibly cool how that riff was utilized as the song's refrain.

    in reading through the comments other people have left, i noticed multiple people perceiving the song to have two concepts--platonic love and negative body image--that i don't think really pertain to the song at all. for a platonic friendship to exist the relationship must be non-sexual, so if you are attracted to someone and want to kiss them then that basically negates the platonic concept. And if someone happens to not be attracted to you, then that doesn't automatically mean you have a negative body image. it's just the law of averages: you could be incredibly beautiful and completely pleased with the way you look, yet there is still going to be a small minority out there who find you completely disgusting. after all, attraction to other people is such a strange beast. it's not something you can wholly rationalize since part of it operates on a chemical level.
