Elvis Costello

(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love & Understanding

As I walk through
This wicked world
Searchin' for light in the darkness of insanity.
I ask myself
Is all hope lost?
Is there only pain and hatred, and misery?
And each time I feel like this inside,
There's one thing I wanna know:
What's so funny 'bout peace love

Bright Blue Times

Alone in the crowd
Simply taking up space
You would never admit to tears
Till theyre rolling down your face
Chorus:
One day, love, long from now
Maybe youll leave that we
Live in bright blue times
Alone in the dark
Theres a voice in your head
You would never admit your name
Could be someone else instead
Chorus

Swine

Youre a swine and Im saying thats an insult to the pig
In the foul furrow that you dig
Why dont you lay your head down
In that unconsecrated ground
Was she your mother?
Or was she your bride
To defile and to blister
To gnaw at her side
Is this the end of the world?
Now that youve finished your life
This riddle is the work of my little pen-knife

My Funny Valentine

My funny valentine, sweet comic valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable, unphotographable
But youre my favourite work of art
Is your figure less than greek ?
Is your mouth a little weak ?
When you open it to speak
Are you smart ?
Dont change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little valentine, stay
Each day is valentines day

Expert Rites

I marvel at the wonder of it in our souless age
Fast flow the tears upon the page
Dont be alarmed I am her friend
Will I be excused if I presume
Its more than disappointment that we share
You share the same sorry life, the families fight,
That unhappy blade you both invite
This romantic ideal has a lonely appeal
I once loved someone the way that you do
But I had to let her go
I live with my regret
Dont despair my would-be juliet

Ive Been Wrong Before

The night we met
The night that I wont forget
Youve seen what Ive been waiting for
But baby, Ive been wrong before
You held me tight
And everything seemed just right
I couldnt ask for more
But baby, Ive been wrong before
She used to smile at me
And hold my hand like you do
Then she left me
And broke my heart in two
See her face
And feel your warm embrace
Youre all that I adore
But baby, Ive been wrong before
Oh baby, Ive been wrong before

Honey Hush

Come into this house and stop that yakity yak
cause your sugar-daddy dont want no talkin back
You keep on babblin, talkin bout this and that
I got news for ya baby, you aint nothin but an alley cat
Turn off the waterworks baby, they dont move me no more
Im leavin this town, aint comin back no more
Honey hush
Come into this house and stop that yakity yak
Youre makin me nervous and Im holdin a baseball bat
Hi-ho, hi-ho silver
Hi-ho, hi-ho silver away

Smile

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through
For you
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear
May be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on tryin'
Smile, what's the use of cryin'
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you'd just smile
(x2)
Smile

Country Darkness

This tattered document
A mystery you can solve
Some burnt out filament
Flies still buzzing around the bulb
Country Darkness
He thought of traveling
Heard an approaching train
Drown out his desperate pulse
A song with no refrain
Country Darkness
She daydreams of forbidden sins
There must be something more
The prison she lives in
The one with the open door
The veil is covering
A glistening and cruel blade
Suffer little children
Repent, unfaithful maid
Country Darkness

Broken

If I am frightened then I can hide it
If I am crying, Ill call it laughter
If I am haunted, Ill call it my imaginary friend
If I am bleeding, Ill call it my wine
But if you leave me then I am broken
And if Im broken then only death remains
If I am drifting, then I can fight it
If I am sinking, no-one will know it
If I am blinded Ill have my voices still to guide me
If they yet fled away Id bless the silence
But if you leave me then I am broken
And if Im broken then only death remains
