Song With Rose (Album Version) - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

Between last breaths and first regrets

The days dragged on like cigarettes

In the distance martyrs and martinets

 

Dally

 

Dancing with the empty silhouettes of threats

 

So where but heaven does love end

And where on earth does it begin

 

It's not the kind of love that is pinned

Like a medal

 

Or pressed as pennies in a tin

 

There is hope and after that

 

There is only faith

 

Love like a wraith

 

Never made me afraid

 

Consoled as I was by that shade

 

Here lie the roses in the ashes

Deep as the barnacles that cling

 

Just like a lace that runs

Through everyone and everything

 

In that other still forever

 

In that time before the past I

Told myself we'd be together

 

Can you promise me

That it will be eternally

 

There is hope and after that

 

There is only faith

 

Love like a wraith

 

Never made me afraid

 

Consoled as I was consoled as I was

 

Consoled as I was by that shade
