The Delivery Man - Elvis Costello/The Imposters

Written by:Elvis Costello

Was able so Vivian said

 

Her shoulders flung forward

Her lips in a purse

 

She talks like the beauty that she never was

 

Of the fabulous wild nights that she never has

In a certain light he looked like Elvis

 

In a certain way he feels like Jesus

 

Everyone dreams of him just as they can

 

But he's only the humble delivery man

 

Geraldine blushes and brushes away

 

The cigarette ashes that Vivian scatters

 

Stares out of the window at the things that she says

 

While gossip within her competes with the widow

Ever since he's gone she feels like crying all the time

She knows for sure Vivian is lying

 

Now she has a daughter to raise as she can

 

But she just wouldn't trust that delivery man

 

Ivy puts down the ghost story she's reading

 

Looks up at that face on the wall

 

Thinking about how her father lay bleeding

 

Shot in the back 'cos orders were misleading

 

How a flag and a medal don't have any meaning

 

On the 5th of July as they tore down the fair

 

And he'd seen all the local girls who were worth kissing

With the smell of the gunpowder still in the air

 

They noticed that Abel and Ivy were missing

 

In a certain light he looked like Elvis

 

In a certain way he seemed like Jesus

 

He said why can't you be kind to me like you were meant to be

 

When they let me out I had a brand new identity

 

Now everyone dreams of me just as they can

 

I want to be your delivery man

 

In a certain light he looked like Elvis

 

In a certain way he seemed like Jesus

 

In a certain light he looked like Elvis

 

In a certain way he seemed like Jesus

In a certain light he looked like Elvis

 

In a certain way he feels like Jesus
