Town Where Time Stood Still Lyrics - Elvis Costello



Review The Song (0)


I made my selection from the lonely hit parade
In the town where time stood still
And I was feeling very little pain
Until some joker played "Almost Persuaded"
Now every girl I see
Looks so much prettier to me
This faithfulness has faded
And their looks are sharp as daggers
And the conversation heated
Since the boys have all been laid up
And are walking 'round defeated
In the town where time stood still

Teach me to say "I love you"
They'll teach you to say "You will"
In the town where time stood still
Or maybe I can find a little girl
To wind me up with all the usual skill

There's nothing else to do but rearrange somebody's features
Or drop your figures in the till
And the bar is full of girls just like the creature with the curse
And the food is just like cabaret and vice versa
In the town where time stood still

Somebody in charge must have pretended
That the future's been suspended
And I say I don't want trouble
But I find myself back in it
In the town where time stood still
I am the man of the minute

Suddenly I saw her through the smoke and empty beers
In the town where time stood still
She might have have well been waiting years
Now I suppose we did some things we used to do
But no amount of darkness could ever turn her into you

And so I woke up in the town where time stood still
With a headache and a heartache
And a handful of pills
And a welcome mat, a scandal rag, and unpaid bills

With a headache and a heartache
And an hour or two to kill
I only wish we were together...
In the town where time stood still
