"I Just Want to See the Boy Happy" as written by and Steven Patrick/tobias Morrissey....
Lord these words I beg of you
As I kneel down at my bed
Because soon I will be dead
Let's face it soon I will be dead
And I just want to
I want to see the boy happy
With some hope in his pale eyes
Is that too much to ask?
Before I die
I have one final dream
For my own life I don't care anything

Lord these words I beg of you
As I kneel down at my bed
Let's face it soon I will be dead
And I just want to
I want to see the boy happy
With his arms around his first love
Is that too much to ask?
Before I die
I have one final dream
For my own life I don't care anything
And I just want to
I want to see this boy happy
Why is this such a bad thing?

    General CommentThis is the confessional prayer of an ex-priest who molested an altar boy. Morrissey wears a clerical collar on the cover of the single.

    The priest, appropriately racked with guilt and defrocked, sincerely wants to see that he hasn't totally ruined a life.

    His dying wish is to see that his victim finds healing and happiness.
