Here It Comes



I'm not so sure, and yet I know
Give me your life
It's worthless anyhow
And here it comes

I'm not so cold
As I like to think I am
Though I'll be felt
Forever in your wake

And here it comes

I'd rather be no one
Than someone with no one
I'd rather be no one
Than someone with no one
I'd rather be no one
Than someone with no one to love
I am useless for her
Yeah yeah useless for her

I'd rather be no one
Than someone with no one
I'd rather be no one
Than someone with no one
I'd rather be no one
Than someone with no one to love
I am useless for her
Yeah yeah useless for her

Details:
Here It Comes captures the metamorphosis of The Stone Roses from punk to pop, as an infectious bubblegum guitar line dominates in this, the band's first strong melody. At the end of the song, Ian cleverly subverts "for her" into "f***er" ("I'm 'a useless for her" / "I'm a useless f***er").
