"To Me You Are A Work Of Art" as written by and Steven Patrick/whyte Morrissey....
I live a life
I feel the pain
To sing this song
To tell the tale
I wish I never even heard the song
I see the world
It makes me puke
But then I look at you and know
That somewhere there's a someone who can soothe me

To me you are a work of art
And I would give you my heart
That's if I had one

I see the world
It makes me puke
But then I look at you and know
That somewhere there's a someone who can soothe me

To me you are a work of art
And I would give you my heart
That's if I had one, had one

To me you are a work of art
And I would give you my heart
That's if I had one

    General CommentThis song always makes me think of 'The Picture of Dorian Gray'.
    The painter, Basil Hallward paints nothing and nobody but Dorian. As he tries to explain this to Lord Henry Wotton, he says, "I couldn't be happy if I didn't see him every day. He is absolutely necessary to me [...] He is all my art to me now", meaning that, since he met him, he sees the world differently and that Dorian is the greatest inspiration he has ever known.
    Although Basil says that Dorian is IN his every work of art, rather than being a work of art himself, I think the situation is similar to the one portrayed in this song.
