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 tried in vain to drive myself insane
I talk to myself but I don`t listen
I found out what I was missing

I miss talking in the dark
Without you, I`m not conversational
Without the sense of the occasional
Without you, I miss talking in the dark
When the barking and the biting is through
We can talk like we`re in love or talk like we`re above it
We can talk and talk until we talk ourselves out of it

I look for the news, somebody to abuse
I look at myself but it`s so chancy
I see things that I don`t fancy

I miss talking in the dark
Without you, I`m not conversational
Without the sense of the occasional
Without you, I miss talking in the dark
Without you, I miss talking in the dark
