      About "Rocking Horse Road"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello - "Rocking Horse Road"

      The chains from the bridle and the reins fell from my hands
      The engines are idle and the ship sails on dry land
      I stood there stupefied, I thought I recognized
      Walking down Rocking Horse Road, getting lost

      Shot through Vaseline, he picks up the paper from the lawn
      And tucks "The Suburban Assassin" underneath his arm
      He smiles weakly and turns away
      I know you`ll never come to harm
      Walking down Rocking Horse Road, it`s so peaceful

      It`s like a photograph
      From the other side of the world
      I said "I want you only"
      And then I left you alone
      Crying on Rocking Horse Road, or somewhere quite like it

      The cemetery gardens, there are names not numbers on the gateposts
      And the eyes in the curtain follow you like a smirking ghost
      I know I must not look back
      `Cause part of me is waiting still

      There on Rocking Horse Road for you
      In a little dream house made for two
      Well you were the one that made your escape
      In your stocking feet and your sticky tape

      All the way down [repeat to fade]
