"I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday"
(Morrissey/Mark E. Nevin)

 

These words are transcribed without permission the way they appear in Morrissey's "íThe Best Of!" album. Additions to the printed lyrics are in darker text while omissions are striken out.

My love, wherever you are
whatever you are
don't lose faith
I know it's gonna happen someday
to you 1
Please wait
please wait
wait
don't lose faith

You say that the day just never arrives
and it's never seemed so far away
still, I know it's gonna happen someday
to you 1
Please wait
don't lose faith

 

1 In live performances of this song on the 2004 You Are The Quarry tour Morrissey sometimes sang "I know it's gonna happen someday to me.

Note:
The German voices in the sample heard at the beginning of this song are those of the German dramatist, poet, writer, essayist and theatre director Heiner Müller and the radio presenter who introduces him.

Original in German:
...Drüber Nachdenken ob nicht von jungen Leuten vielleicht mehr Impulse kommen als von Alten, denen nichts mehr passieren kann...
...Wenn es gut geht, wird das ???forum im nächsten März...
...Für Heiner Müller bedeutet es die Vorbereitung...
[Tuning]
...Die von Franken??? bis nach Berlin...Aber nun ist etwas von ???...
[Switching to French Channel]

Translated:
...We should think about young people who are ready to try more new ideas than... old ones [people], to which nothing bad can happen anymore...
...If everything works fine, the ???council is going to...next march...
...For Heiner Mueller it means the preparation for...
[Tuning]
...Which reaches from ?Franken? to Berlin...But now something of the ???...

In an interview published around 1992 Morrissey said he just accidentally switched on the radio and recorded whatever came through the airwaves and that he didnt know what the German voice says, so the interviewer told him.
