A narrative song from The Smiths that concludes in Morrissey losing hope of ever sustaining a relationship with a woman. Also the name of a band from Seattle, which formed almost two decades after that brilliant song was written.
Upon the sand, upon the bay

"There is a quick and easy way" you say

Before you illustrate

I'd rather state :

"I'm not the man you think I am

I'm not the man you think I am"

And Sorrow's native son

He will not smile for anyone

And Pretty Girls Make Graves

Ohh....

End of the pier, end of the bay

You tug my arm, and say : "Give in to lust,

Give up to lust, oh heaven knows we'll

Soon be dust ... "

Oh, I'm not the man you think I am

I'm not the man you think I am

And Sorrow's native son

He will not rise for anyone

And Pretty Girls Make Graves

Oh, really ?
Oh ...
