When I was young, maybe about ten, my mother and I got into an argument about who the greatest lyricist of all time (or maybe just the latter half of the twentieth century) was. She claimed it was Elvis Costello, but I disagreed. "Okay," she said. "One day when you're older you'll understand what I mean." Six years later, I sat down and actually listened to the words in "Indoor Fireworks." Suddenly, I saw what she had meant all those years ago. This is quite possibly one of the greatest songs ever written.
