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`m just about glad that I knew you once
And it was more than just a passing acquaintance
I`m just about glad that it was a memory
That doesn't need constant maintenance
There are a few things that I regret
But nothing that I need to forget
For all of the courage that we never had
I`m just about glad

[Chorus:]
Just about glad we didn't do that thing
Just about glad we didn't have that fling
Just about glad we didn't give it a try
Just about glad, is that a tear in your eye

And on the few times I rang to propose
There was a man there or so I suppose
The greatest lover that you never had
I`m just about glad

They called time and vodka and lime
In some far flung Canadian club
(Just about glad)
And there I was just waiting to fall
Like a toe just aching to stub
(Just about glad)
Later on I could never accept it
When you finally gave it all to him
(Just about glad)
And you said that my nurse was sweet
But her lamp was just beginning to dim

I`m just about glad
That we never did that thing we were going to do
I`m just about glad I can look you in the eye
But I can`t say the same for you
And though the passion still flutters and flickers
It never got into our knickers
For all of the courage that we never had
I`m just about, I`m just about
I`m just about, I`m just about

[Chorus]

And it`s all just a stupid creation
Of my feverish imagination
If I`m the greatest lover that you never had
I`m just about, I`m just about
I`m just about, I`m just about

[Chorus]

Is that a tear in your eye [3x]
