Broken Lyrics

Artist: Elvis Costello
Album: Mighty Like A Rose

If I am frightened then I can hide it
If I am crying, I'll call it laughter
If I am haunted, I'll call it my imaginary friend
If I am bleeding, I'll call it my wine

But if you leave me then I am broken
And if I'm broken then only death remains

If I am drifting, then I can fight it
If I am sinking, no-one will know it
If I am blinded I'll have my voices still to guide me
If they yet fled away I'd bless the silence

But if you leave me then I am broken
And if I'm broken then only death remains

Can someone tell me who wrote the lyrics to Elvis Costello's "Broken". I have McManus/McCartney, but who are they and what are their first names? Thanks.

Declan MacManus is Costello's real name.
McCartney is Paul (yes, THAT Paul McCartney)
I've also read that Cait O'Riordan (his then partner) also contributed, though I don't know to what extent.
