Standard

The Smiths, Rubber Ring, B-side on «The boy with the thorn on his side» single, 1985

…..The passing of time leaves empty lives
Waiting to be filled
The passing of time
Leaves empty lives
Waiting to be filled
I’m here with the cause
I’m holding the torch
In the corner of your room
Can you hear me ?
And when you’re dancing and laughing
And finally living
Hear my voice in your head
And think of me kindly …..

  1. A sad fact widely known
    The most impassionate song
    To a lonely soul
    Is so easily outgrown
    But don’t forget the songs
    That made you smile
    And the songs that made you cry
    When you lay in awe
    On the bedroom floor
    And said : «Oh, oh, smother me Mother…»
    No …
    Rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring
    La …

    The passing of time
    And all of its crimes
    Is making me sad again
    The passing of time
    And all of its sickening crimes
    Is making me sad again
    But don’t forget the songs
    That made you cry
    And the songs that saved your life
    Yes, you’re older now
    And you’re a clever swine
    But they were the only ones who ever stood by you

    The passing of time leaves empty lives
    Waiting to be filled (the passing …)
    The passing of time
    Leaves empty lives
    Waiting to be filled
    I’m here with the cause
    I’m holding the torch
    In the corner of your room
    Can you hear me ?
    And when you’re dancing and laughing
    And finally living
    Hear my voice in your head
    And think of me kindly
    No …
    Rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring
    La …
    No …
    Rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring

    Do you
    Love me like you used to ?
    Oh …
    Rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring, rubber ring
    La …

    You’re clever
    Everybody’s clever nowadays
    You’re clever
    Everybody’s clever nowadays

    You are sleeping
    You do not want to believe
    You are sleeping
    You do not want to believe
    You are sleeping
    You do not want to believe
    You are sleeping
