      About "For Other Eyes"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello & The Brodsky Quartet - "For Other Eyes"

      I don't know what I would do
      If this letter should fall into
      Other hands than it should pass through
      For other eyes

      He said,"It was nothing...it's over and done"
      But the rotten worm was burrowing still
      It's invades me bleeding me white
      For other replies
      I searched his pockets
      I searched his eyes
      I searched his wallet for clues and lies
      And I found a number that I somehow dialed
      A woman answered, a woman smiled
      Then she hung up on the silence unperplexed
      Innocently she spun her Rolodex
      I dialed again I could not resist
      Revealing just the dentist receptionist

      One day we'll laugh about it or maybe we'll curse
      But there is one thing that is making it worse
      And it's the lack of forgiveness that I can't disguise
      No matter how well he lies
      Now we don't know each other anymore
      And when we touch our lips feel sore
      I question the longing left in his sighs
      For other eyes
