Paul McCartney My Brave Face Lyrics

Last updated: 05/08/2008 11:00:00 AM

Written and composed by Paul McCartney and Declan MacManus

MY BRAVE, MY BRAVE, MY BRAVE FACE.


I'VE BEEN LIVING IN STYLE,
UNACCUSTOMED AS I AM
TO THE LUXURY LIFE,
I'VE BEEN HITTING THE TOWN
AND IT DIDN'T HIT BACK.

I'VE BEEN DOING THE ROUNDS,
UNACCUSTOMED AS I AM
TO THE TIME ON MY HANDS.
NOW I DON'T HAVE TO TELL ANYBODY
WHEN I'M GONNA GET BACK.

EVER SINCE YOU WENT AWAY
I'VE HAD THIS SENTIMENTAL INCLINATION
NOT TO CHANGE A SINGLE THING.
AS I PULL THE SHEETS BACK ON THE BED,
I WANT TO GO BURY MY HEAD IN YOUR PILLOW.

NOW THAT I'M ALONE AGAIN, I CAN'T STOP BREAKING DOWN AGAIN,
THE SIMPLEST THINGS SET ME OFF AGAIN,
TAKE ME TO THAT PLACE
WHERE I CAN'T FIND MY BRAVE FACE,
WHERE I CAN'T FIND MY BRAVE FACE,
MY BRAVE, MY BRAVE, MY BRAVE FACE.

MY BRAVE FACE.

I'VE BEEN LIVING A LIE,
UNACCUSTOMED AS I AM
TO THE WORK OF A HOUSEWIFE.
I'VE BEEN BREAKING UP
DIRTY DISHES AND BEEN THROWING THEM AWAY.

EVER SINCE YOU LEFT I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO
COMPOSE A "BABY, WILL YOU PLEASE COME HOME" NOTE
MEANT FOR YOU.
AS I CLEAR AWAY ANOTHER UNTOUCHED TV DINNER
FROM THE TABLE I LAID FOR TWO.

NOW THAT I'M ALONE AGAIN, I CAN'T STOP BREAKING DOWN AGAIN,
THE SIMPLEST THINGS SET ME OFF AGAIN
TAKE ME TO THAT PLACE.
WHERE I CAN'T FIND MY BRAVE FACE,
WHERE I CAN'T FIND MY BRAVE FACE,
MY BRAVE, MY BRAVE, MY BRAVE FACE.

MY BRAVE FACE.

UH -.
