Paroles "Tears Before Bedtime" - Elvis Costello

I know the name on the tip of your tongue
And I know that accusing look
Everybody knows I've been so wrong
That's the problem, and here's the hook

Tears before bedtime
There'll be trouble tonight
I don't want to talk about it anymore
I don't want to have another fight
I don't want to talk, I don't want to fight
How wrong can I be before I am right?

For the tears that you boo-hoo-hoo-hoo
There can be no defense
You say you'll forgive and forget
But it's only a pretense

Tears before bedtime
There'll be trouble tonight
I don't want to talk about it anymore
I don't want to have another fight
I don't want to talk, I don't want to fight
How wrong can I be before I am right?

Either you can leave the past behind
Or give me something to disconnect my mind
I sleep with my fists clenched tight
When I don't lie awake all night
I guess time gave up the ghost too late
And the balance of our love
Very soon turns to hate

Darling, your suspiciousness
Tortures me at night
But I can't excuse the cruel words
That I use whenever we fight

Tears before bedtime
There'll be trouble tonight
I don't want to talk about it anymore
I don't want to have another fight
I don't want to talk, I don't want to fight
How wrong can I be before I am right?

How wrong can I be before I am right?
How wrong can I be before I am right?
How wrong can I be before I am right?

I don't want to talk, I don't want to fight
How wrong can I be before I am right?
I don't want to talk, I don't want to fight
How wrong can I be before I am right?
I don't want to talk, I don't want to fight
How wrong can I be before I am right?
I don't want to talk, I don't want to fight
How wrong can I be before I am right?
I don't want to talk, I don't want to fight
How wrong can I be before I am right?
I don't want to talk, I don't want to fight
How wrong can I be before I am right?
