      About "There's A Story In Your Voice"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello & The Imposters - "There's A Story In Your Voice"

      Once upon another time
      If you had the need
      I'd step right in your shoes that you've been walking
      'Cause someone put the hurt in you
      For everyone to see
      And you only have to speak to tell your fortune

      There's a story in your voice
      Both by damage and by choice
      It tells of promises and pleasure
      And a tale of wine and woe
      The uneasy time to come
      And the long way round we go to get there

      Once you told me fairy tales
      Everybody knows
      But I didn't care for their prediction
      Now you say you're leaving me
      And packing up your clothes
      I finally see you were a work of fiction

      There's a story in your walk
      Then you crumble just like chalk
      And I could say that I was sorry
      But I wouldn't mean it much
      There are pages I can't touch
      And something that's been torn out of this chapter

      Far away, not far enough
      'Cause I can still recall
      How it felt when I read that last sentence
      Now I go inside some rooms with Gideon in them all
      And hide myself from all hope of repentance

      There's a story in your eyes
      Cheap sunglasses might disguise
      But when the bedroom light reveals
      All that bravado and that fright
      That you cover up in spite
      Attempts to strip away this fabrication

      There's a story in your voice
      Both by damage and by choice
      It tells of promises and pleasure
      And a tale of wine and woe
      The uneasy time to come
      And the long way round we go to get there
