13 Steps Lead Down - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

When nobody knows she puts on secret clothes

And lies in the meadow with her hands tied behind her back

I won't refuse if you know how to use it

Just stop playing that ugly drug music

 

Thirteen steps lead down

 

Thirteen steps lead down

 

There's commoners and kings

And everyone's a prisoner of paper and glue

And a decent pair of scissors

So tonight I'm drinking to your health

Because I just can't stand myself

 

Thirteen steps lead down

 

Thirteen steps lead down

 

Thirteen steps lead down

 

Thirteen steps lead down

 

She stands and fails

On fashion fingernails

Her lovers have her walking 'round

On instruments of torture

And one of them is poisonous

 

The other is a thief they say

 

So what one could give to her

The other cannot take away

 

When nobody knows she puts on secret clothes

And lies in her splendor for a picture opportunity

Cover up that bruise put on patent leather shoes

Just stop playing that bad mood music

 

Thirteen steps lead down

 

Thirteen steps lead down

 

There's commoners and kings

And everyone's a prisoner of paper and glue

 

And a decent pair of scissors

 

So tonight I'm drinking to your health

Because I just can't stand myself

 

Thirteen steps lead down

 

Thirteen steps lead down

 

Thirteen steps lead down

 

Thirteen steps lead down
