Double Decker Bus

Another late night on a Saturday!

After a long term boyfriend broke up with me, I was pretty depressed. It turned out to be a good decision, but at the time, it was pretty heart breaking.

My friend Tad suggested that I should listen to the Smith to just get all depressed. He told me about this song about how this guy wanted to get hit by a double decker bus with his girlfriend. It’s a very sad song, but when I think of that song I smile, because at my deepest despair Tad can always make me laugh.

It’s one of those songs that you remember lyris of because it’s so unusual, but always have a hard time to remember the title of the song.

Anyways, years later Tad, Janet (his wife), Peter, and I went to see Morrissey live in concert. I thought it would be all depressing and all but, Morissey is actually kind of a upbeat guy. He was telling jokes and he can really really sing.

If you are every looking for the lyrics to the double decker bus song, here it is!

The Smiths – there is a light that never goes out

Take me out tonight
Where there’s music and there’s people
And they’re young and alive
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven’t got one
Anymore

Take me out tonight
Because I want to see people and I
Want to see life
Driving in your car
Oh, please don’t drop me home
Because it’s not my home, it’s their
Home, and I’m welcome no more

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure – the privilege is mine

Take me out tonight
Take me anywhere, I don’t care
I don’t care, I don’t care
And in the darkened underpass
I thought: Oh God, my chance has come at last
(But then a strange fear gripped me and I
Just couldn’t ask)

Take me out tonight
Oh, take me anywhere, I don’t care
I don’t care, I don’t care
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven’t got one, da …
Oh, I haven’t got one

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure – the privilege is mine

Oh, There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
