Deep Dark Truthful Mirror - Elvis Costello

 

One day you're going to have to face

 

A deep dark truthful mirror

 

And it's going to tell you things that

I still love you too much to say

 

The sky was just a purple bruise

 

The ground was iron

 

And you fell all around the town until

You looked the same

 

The same eyes the same

Lips the same lie from

Your tongue trips

 

Deep dark deep dark truthful mirror

 

Deep dark deep dark truthful mirror

 

Now the flagstone streets where

The newspaper shouts ring to the boots of roustabouts

 

But you're never in any doubt

There's something happening somewhere

 

You chase down the road til your fingers bleed

 

On a fiberglass tumbleweed

 

You can blow around the town

 

But it all shuts down the same

 

The same eyes the same lips

 

The same lie from

Your tongue trips

 

Deep dark deep dark truthful mirror

 

Deep dark deep dark truthful mirror

 

So you bay for the boy in the tiger-skin trunks

 

They set him up

 

Set him up on the stool

 

He falls down

Falls down like a drunk

 

And you drink til you drool

 

And it's his story you'll flatter

 

You'll stretch him out like a saint

 

But the canvas that he splattered will be the

Picture that you never paint

 

Deep dark deep dark truthful mirror

 

Deep dark deep dark truthful mirror

 

A stripping puppet on a liquid

Stick gets into it pretty thick

 

A butterfly drinks a turtles tears

But how do you know he really needs it

 

Cos a butterfly feeds on a dead monkeys hand

 

Jesus wept he felt abandoned

 

You're spellbound baby there's no doubting that

Did you ever see a stare like a persian cat

 

The same eyes the same lips the same lie

 

Your tongue trips

 

Deep dark deep dark truthful mirror

 

Deep dark deep dark truthful mirror

 

Deep dark deep dark truthful mirror
