The Name Of This Thing Is Not Love - Elvis Costello/The Imposters

Written by:Elvis Costello

You naver

I just cannot kill

But the name of this thing is not love

And I can't take a potion and

I won't take a pill

So it tortures me still

But the name of this thing is not love

Then you start entertaining such a terrible thought

Life is so very short

And the name of this thing is not love

There's a bruise on her arm

And some blood on the floor

But the name of this thing is not love

 

And they're taunting some girl

That they claim to adore

She can't take anymore

But the name of this thing is not love

 

Who in the world do you think that you are

That you pushed me this far

But the name of this thing is not love

 

The name of this thing is not love

 

The name of this thing is not love

He thinks of her still

You'd never guess

 

He's trying so to forget her

 

The occasional moments that he'll always bless

Watching her dress

 

For worse or better

 

He watched her pick over her broken playthings

What played on his mind is not love

The cast aside tokens and discarded rings

Over one of his flings

But the name of this thing is not love

Then he threw something down

In the wild rushing river

And won't ever recover

But the name of this thing is not love

 

Then you start out pretending that you're so very tough

Life is not short enough

 

But the name of this thing is not love

 

The name of this thing is not love

 

The name of this thing is not love

 

The name of this thing is not love
