Response: Ophelia

What She Said
The Smiths

What she said:

"How come someone hasn't noticed
that I'm dead
and decided to bury me
God knows, I'm ready"
What she said was sad
but then, all the rejections she's had
to pretend to be happy
could only be idiocy
What she said was not for the job or
lover that she never had
What she read
all heady books
she'd sit and prophesise
(it took a tattooed boy from
Birkenhead
to really really open her eyes)
What she said:
"I smoke 'cos I'm hoping for an
early death
AND I NEED TO CLING TO SOMETHING !"
What she said:
"I smoke 'cos I'm hoping for an
early death
AND I NEED TO CLING TO SOMETHING !"

Why this response?
Alright, alright--I decided to focus on a small part of this song for my response, but these lyrics really did jump into my head when I saw the call picture:


"How come someone hasn't noticed
that I'm dead
and decided to bury me
God knows, I'm ready"

It's pretty self-explanatory.  I guess, if you look at the whole song, it's a pretty lame response, and I guess with the lyrics I focused on, it isn't the most deep thing in the whole world, HOWEVER, I felt that excerpt of the lyrics fit perfectly with the picture.
