Starting To Come To Me - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

It's started to come to me

Your new career would probably end like this

 

All that professional lipstick pressed into an amateur kiss

Farewell to the studied lines and carefully broken hearts

The overpowering perfume and the glimpse of her garter

Mingling with the sweet smoldering scent of the martyr

Well it's starting to come to me

Come to me come to me

Starting to come to me

 

So you began to recognize the well dressed man

That everybody loves

It started when you chopped off all the fingers

Of those pony skin gloves

Then you cut a hole out where the love light

Used to shine

Your tears of pleasure equal measure crocodile and brine

You try to laugh it off saying I knew all

The time

But it's starting to come to me

Come to me come to me

Starting to come to me

 

Sometimes you bring me down to play reluctant confidant

You say you may reward him if he gives you

What you want

But these are days to treasure and to hold

They are much too precious to be sold

 

You'd probably play the pirate

If you weren't so busy digging up the gold

 

Now you could tell him wanted you 'cause

You could almost taste it on his breath

 

But you always cheated life

Just like the bold dare devil cheated death

Incidentally late last night your understudy

Finally got what you deserve

 

In private she's seductive but in public

She's prim porcelain and nervous

Afraid someone will recognize the shame in her eyes

You've still got your dignity or the next best disguise

You never know when to say no and when to

Compromise

But it's starting to come to me

Come to me come to me

Starting to come to me

Come to me come to me

Starting to come to me
