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 »

Tonight the bottle let me down
It let your memory come around
The one true friend I thought I`d found
Tonight the bottle let me down

I've always had a bottle I could turn to
And lately I've been turnin` every day
But the wine don`t take effect the way it used to
And I`m hurtin` in old familiar ways

Tonight the bottle let me down
It let your memory come around
The one true friend I thought I`d found
Tonight the bottle let me down

Each night I leave the bar room when it`s over
Not feeling any pain at closing time
But tonight your memory found me much too sober
I can`t drink enough to keep you off my mind

Tonight the bottle let me down
It let your memory come around
The one true friend I thought I`d found
Tonight the bottle let me down
