Complicated Shadows (Album Version) - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)/The Attractions

Written by:Elvis Costello

Well you know your time has come

 

And you're sorry for what you've done

 

You should've never have been playing with a gun

In those complicated shadows

 

Well there's a line that you must toe

 

And it'll soon be time to go

 

But it's darker than you know in those complicated shadows

 

All you gangsters and rude clowns

 

Who were shooting up the town

 

When you should have found someone to put the blame on

 

Though the fury's hot and hard

 

I still see that cold graveyard

 

There's a solitary stone that's got your name on

 

You don't have to take it from me

 

But I know what I spake

 

You think you're like iron and steel

 

But iron and steel will bend and break

In those complicated shadows

 

Sometimes justice you will find

 

Is just dumb not color blind

 

And your poor shattered mind can't take it all in

 

All those phantoms and those shades

 

Should jump up on judgement day

 

And say to the almighty I'm still stinking of sin

 

But the jury was dismissed

Took his neck and they give it a twist

 

So you see you won't be missed in those complicated shadows

 

You can say just what you like

 

In a voice like a john ford film

 

Take the law into your hands

 

You will soon get tired of killing

In those complicated shadows

 

Complicated shadows

 

Complicated shadows

 

Complicated shadows
