My Dark Life Lyrics

Artist: Elvis Costello
Album: Extreme Honey-Very Best Of The Warner Brothers Years

She says, nobody wants to believe
You're the same as
everyone
What makes makes me
unique
My Dark Life

There was a kink in the
world
Sent that statue
tumbling
An invitation east
So we can watch it all
crumbling
she came on like a light
and so softly she spoke
you don't know
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, You tear
your dreams
From consumptive
ballerinas
She'll stand on tiptoe
for you
In a grey and tattered
tutu

She stay's where
she is
cause of voyeurs like
these
with an accusative look
that says
My Dark Life

Rubber men await you
there
In each beguiling alley
To shake you and to
pierce you and remind you of
My dark Life

Enter the pious elite
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 as strong concealed
arms
Set off bells and alarms
In the strangest
locations of
My Dark Life

But the fantasies
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 upon your
knees
It's the perfect
position
for kissing west on
leather

So they came from Ugly,
Texas
and from Nameless,
Tennesee
from Peculiar, Missouri
and from places closer
to me

All the cream of
heartless england
cheer the carnival is
over
and remnants of Red Army
bandsmen
played America the
Beautiful
