Elvis Costello - "All Grown Up Macmanus" lyrics

I'm trouble" she said
Her promise was almost undone
Spread out on the floor of her father's house
Under her tongue, dissolving her responsibilities

To finally deny everyone with unflattering comparison
All grown up
CHORUS
And you hate all the people that you used to adore
And you don't care anymore
And you despise all the rumors and lies of the life you led
before
Did I hear you right'

You're feeling hounded and pushed around
If all of this life has been such a big disappointment to you
You want to just lay down and die

Why don't you stop blaming some guy
And go give the next one a try

CHORUS
You'll see you're still so young
But look at yourself
You haven't earned the weariness
That sounds so jaded on your tongue
"I'm weak" she says

And blesses herself and gets into bed
Clutching the covers to her throat
"So punish me now and let me go back to the sham of my life"
"This night is the perfect antidote for all of the poison that
you wrote"

CHORUS
