Poisoned Rose - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

Written by:Declan MacManus

The poisoned rose

 

That you gave to me

 

It left me half alive

Half in ecstasy

 

But if half of your love

 

Is all

I can win

 

Give me just a fraction

But no more medicine

 

The poisoned rose

 

On a Valentine card

 

That you take straight to the heart

 

You call my junkyard

 

But if all I can do

 

Is save pieces of you

 

The piece of your mind

 

The piece of your heart

 

Didn't tear me apart

 

Like the poisoned rose

I received from you

 

I don't know

 

How we came to grow

 

Into this very sad affair

 

Every time we do the decent thing

 

Somebody spikes the drink

 

And siggle become the page

 

The poisoned rose

 

That you wear at your best

 

That I keep pressed between the white sheets

Where you lie half undressed

 

I threw away my shirt and shoes

You looked and I dived in

 

It's just you and me now

 

'Cause I threw away the gin

 

I threw away your alibis

All your worn out clothes

 

I threw myself upon the floor

I couldn't throw away

 

This poisoned rose

 

This poisoned rose

 

This poisoned rose
