You Bowed Down - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

I expect you're entitled to know why I'm

Making contact

With acquaintances scattered all over the land

 

I'd promise you now and again that I'd

 

Honour the contract

If it hadn't crumbled away in my hand

 

So we broke that vow independently now

 

But I don't know why you absolutely deny

You bowed down you bowed down

You bowed down

You bowed down you bowed down

You bowed down

 

When you first looked away

I might say it was really a kindness

It must have hurt you to see how dreams sour

 

They say that justice

And love are the next things to blindness

Well you're getting plenty of both of them now

 

And so you parade

Where appointments are made

And never meant to be kept

 

Unless you accept

You bowed down you bowed down you bowed down

You bowed down you bowed down you bowed down

 

You value the burnt amber of falling leaves

And you long to delay

 

As you feel their breath as they whisper

It won't hurt you now to betray

If you just bow down

 

And now every time that we meet on the edge of hysteria

 

You're helping them sell off some new party line

 

I remember a time when you would have seemed so superior

Now you say will you please meet this good friend of mine

 

So you're in demand

As long as you kiss their hand

 

But all the applause

Is for their name not yours

You bowed down you bowed down you bowed down

 

You bowed down you bowed down you bowed down

You bowed down you bowed down you bowed down

You bowed down you bowed down you bowed down

You bowed down

 

You bowed down

 

You bowed down

 

You bowed down
