“The Boy with the Thorn in His Side” by The Smiths

How can they see the love in our eyes and still they don’t believe us? And after all this time, they don’t want to believe us.

The boy with the thorn in his side

How can they look into my eyes
And still they don’t believe me
How can they hear me say those words
And still they don’t believe me

And if they don’t believe me now
Will they ever believe me?
And if they don’t believe me now
Will they ever believe me?

The boy with the thorn in his side
Behind the hatred there lies
A plundering desire for love

How can they see the love in our eyes
And still they don’t believe us
And after all this time
They don’t want to believe us
