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 »

Layin' about, lyin' in bed 
Maybe it was something that I thought I'd said 
With the tempo of today and the temptation of tomorrow 
I don't know if I could give you anything but sorrow 
They stay alive this late on Radio Five 
But the pen that I write with won't tell the truth 
Cause the moments that I can't recall 
Are the moments that you treasure 
Better take another measure for measure 
Losing you is just a memory 
Memories don't mean that much to me 
Losing you is just a memory 
Memories don't mean that much to me 

Now you're here, I'm here too 
Could be this easy for me and you 

Losing you is just a memory 
Memories don't mean that much to me 
Losing you is just a memory 
Memories don't mean that much to me 

Lyin' about layin' in bed 
Maybe it was something that I thought I'd said
