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
