How Soon Is Now?

The Smiths


I am the son and the heir

Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar

I am the son and the heir

Of nothing in particular


You shut your mouth

How can you say

I go about things the wrong way?

I am human and I need to be loved

Just like everybody else does


I am the son and the heir

Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar

I am the son and the heir

Of nothing in particular


You shut your mouth

How can you say

I go about things the wrong way?

I am human and I need to be loved

Just like everybody else does


There's a club if you like to go

You could meet somebody

Who really loves you

So you go and you stand on your own

And you leave on your own

And you go home, and you cry, and you want to die


When you say it's gonna happen now

What exactly do you mean?

See I've already waited too long

And all my hope is gone


You shut your mouth

How can you say

I go about things the wrong way?

I am human and I need to be loved

Just like everybody else does
