      About "How Deep Is the Red"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello - "How Deep Is the Red"

      Is this is not a pretty tale? Is this not a riddle?
      A bow shoots arrows through the air
      A bow drags notes from a fiddle
      But who is the beau of a young girl's heart?
      That a king may send to battle

      Is this not a pretty tale? Is this not a riddle?
      If red is the breast of a soldier's tunic
      Hung with a silver medal
      And red is the thorn that protects the rose
      A deeper red than the petal

      How deep is the red our Redeemer bled?
      The debt of our sins to settle?
      How deep is the red? How deep is the red?
      How deep is the red our Redeemer bled?
      How deep is the red?

      How deep is the red? How deep is the red?
      How deep is the red our Redeemer bled?
      How deep is the red? How deep is the red?
      How deep is the red? How deep is the red?

      Is this is not a pretty tale? Is this not a riddle?
      A bow shoots arrows through the air
      A bow drags notes from a fiddle
      But who is the beau of a young girl's heart?

      How deep is the red? How deep is the red?
      How deep is the red?
