Elvis Costello - "Alibi" lyrics

Alibi By: Elvis Costello When I Was Cruel


You did it, 'cause you want it
Alibi, alibi
And you took it, 'cause you need it
Alibi, alibi

But if I've done something wrong
There're no ifs and buts
'Cause I love you just as much
As I hate your guts
Alibi, alibi, alibi

You don't need anybody
Alibi, alibi
But you are the only one who knows this
Alibi, alibi
You deserve it, 'cause you're special
Alibi, alibi
Maybe Jesus wants you for a sunbeam
Alibi, alibi

But if I left something out I apologize
But if you look in my eyes
Then I sure you will see
Alibi, alibi, alibi

Sometimes I'm so forgiving ohhhh oh
Everything seems bad to me ohhhh oh
But I can't go on living ohhhh oh
With this
Alibi, alibi, alibi, alibi

Insane, but I'm mundane
Alibi, alibi
You wanted to be famous
Alibi alibi
Sorry that your mummy doesn't love you
Alibi, alibi
Stop me, if you've heard this
Alibi, alibi

But if I've done something right
Then be surprise
There抮e soldiers who will kill
But be refuse to die

But if I've done something wrong
There抮e no ifs and buts
'Cause I love you just as much
As I hate your guts
Alibi, alibi, alibi
You were weak still
You couldn抰 help it
Alibi, alibi
But you never had an opponent
Alibi, alibi

But if I left something out I apologize.
But if you look in my eyes
Then I sure you will see
Alibi, alibi, alibi

And you are such a people person
Alibi, alibi
And I will be true to you forever
Alibi, alibi
But you stupid and you lazy
Alibi, alibi
And may be we can make the future better
Alibi, alibi

But if I've done something wrong
There抮e no ifs and buts
'Cause I love you just as much
As I hate your guts
Alibi, alibi, alibi

Sometimes I'm so forgiving ohhhh oh
Everything seems bad to me ohhhh oh
But I can't go on living ohhhh oh
With this
Alibi, alibi, alibi,

You were happy
You were poor
And more honest
And that your
Alibi, alibi

Sister is a whore
Brother isn抰 sure
Alibi, alibi
You don抰 fit the body you抮e trap in
Alibi, alibi
Papa got a brand new
Alibi, alibi

But if I've done something wrong
There抮e no ifs and buts
'Cause I love you just as much
As I hate your guts

But if I left something out I apologize.
But if you look in my eyes
Then I sure you will see
Alibi, alibi, alibi, alibi
