For Other Eyes - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)/Brodsky Quartet

I don't know what I would do

If this letter should fall into

Other hands than it should pass through

 

For other eyes

 

He said It was nothing

It's over and done

 

The rotten worm was burrowing still

It's spirit invades me bleeding me white

 

For other replies

I searched his pockets

I searched his eyes

I searched his wallet for clues and lies

And I found a number that I somehow dialed

A woman answered a woman smiled

Then she hung up

 

On the silence unperplexed

 

Innocently she spun her Rolodex

I dialed again

 

I could not resist

 

Revealing just the dentist receptionist

 

One day we'll laugh about it or maybe we'll curse

But there is one thing that is making it worse

It's the lack of forgiveness that I can't disguise

No matter how well he lies

And we don't know each other anymore

 

And when we touch our lips feel sore

I question the longing left in his sighs

 

For other eyes
