Elvis Costello

Elvis Costello (born Declan Patrick MacManus, 25 August 1954) is an English singer-songwriter. He began his career as part of London's pub rock scene in the early 1970s and later became associated with the first wave of the British punk/New Wave movement of the mid-to-late 1970s. Steeped in word play, the vocabulary of Costello's lyrics is broader than that of most popular songs. His music has drawn on many diverse genres; one critic described him as a "pop encyclopaedia", able to "reinvent the past in his own image". more »

I don't know what I would do
If this letter should fall into
Other hands than it should pass through
For other eyes

He said, "It was nothing, it's over and done"
But the rotten worm was burrowing still
Its spirit invades me, bleeding me white
For other replies

I searched his pockets, I searched his eyes
I searched his wallet for clues or lies
And I found a number that I somehow dialed
A woman answered, a woman smiled

Then she hung up on the silence unperplexed
Innocently spun her Rolodex
I dialed again I could not resist
Revealing just the dentist receptionist

One day we'll laugh about it or maybe we'll curse
But there is one thing and it's making it worse
And it's the lack of forgiveness that I can't disguise
No matter how well he lies

Now we don't know each other anymore
And when we touch our lips feel sore
I question the longing left in his sights
For other eyes
