The Birds Will Still Be Singing (鳥兒依然歌唱) - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)/Brodsky Quartet

Summertime withers as the sun descends

 

He wants to kiss you

Will you condescend

 

Before you wake and find a chill within your bones

 

Under a fine canopy of lover's dust and humourous bones

Banish all dismay

 

Extinguish every sorrow

 

Eternity stinks my darling

 

That's no joke

 

Don't waste your precious time pretending

You're heartbroken

 

There will be tears and candles

Pretty words to say

 

Spare me the lily-white lilly with the awful perfume of decay

 

Banish all dismay

 

Extinguish every sorrow

 

If I'm lost or I'm forgiven

 

The birds will still be singing

 

It's so hard to tear myself away

 

Even when you know it's over

 

It's too much to say

 

Banish all dismay

 

Extinguish every sorrow

 

If I'm lost or I'm forgiven

 

The birds will still be singing
