      About "Good Year For The Roses"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello & The Attractions - "Good Year For The Roses"

      I can hardly bear the sight of lipstick on the cigarettes there in the ashtray
      Lyin' cold the way you left 'em, but at least your lips caressed them while
      You packed
      Or the lip-print on a half-filled cup of coffee that you poured and didn't drink
      But at least you thought you wanted it, that's so much more than I can say
      For me

      What a good year for the roses
      Many blooms still linger there
      The lawn could stand another mowin'
      Funny I don't even care
      As you turn to walk away
      As the door behind you closes
      The only thing I have to say
      It's been a good year for the roses

      After three full years of marriage, it's the first time that you haven't
      Made the bed
      I guess the reason we're not talkin', there's so little left to say we
      Haven't said
      While a million thoughts go racin' through my mind, I find I haven't said a word
      From the bedroom the familiar sound of a baby's cryin' goes unheard

      What a good year for the roses
      Many blooms still linger there
      The lawn could stand another mowin'
      Funny I don't even care
      As you turn to walk away
      As the door behind you closes
      The only thing I have to say
      It's been a good year for the roses
