MY DARK LIFE

Elvis Costello featuring Brian Eno

She says nobody wants to believe
you're the same as everyone
what makes me unique?
My dark life
There was a kink in the world
sent that statue tumbling
an invitation east
So we could watch it all crumbling
she came on, like a light
and so softly she spoke
"you don't, no you don't know about
my dark life".
And you think, you're a guest
you're a tourist at best
peering into the corners of
my dark life
Now that you tear your dreams
from consulted ballerinas
she'll stand on tiptoe for you
in here grey and tattered tu-tu
She stays where she is
'cause of voyeurs like these
with an accuseter look that says
"my dark life"
Robber men await you there
each beguiling alley
to shake you and to pierce you
and remind you of
my dark life
Into the pie easily
in their preening finery
and bang the tambourine
they're dining on rice paper scenery
See how the villain attracts
envious glances from everyone
she's waitressing by day
it doesn't bring in much money now
And the strong concealed arms
set off bells and alarms
in the strangest locations of
my dark life
But the fantasy slipped
as he tipped her in cigarettes
she tries to smile very graciously
when she wants to kill him
Now the victory is sweet
you get down on your knees
it's the perfect position for
kissing western leather
So they came from ugly texas
and from nameless tennessee
from peculiar missouri
and from places closer to me
All the green of hauntless singers
chig the carnival is over
the remnants of an army band plays
wait america, the beautiful
